Your stainless steel sink with drainboard will most likely be formed of a single piece of stainless steel, and as long as the steel is thick enough throughout the construction is suitable. However, the surrounding construction should be durable and strong enough to last for several years, since stainless steel is very durable and long lasting itself. When installing your stainless steel sink, you want to look for heavy duty fixture connections and hardware, as well as potential rubber or paste seals when connecting the sink to your countertop.
Kitchens will be found in standard sizes that will fit into pre cut openings on countertops. For example, the most common size you may notice is 22 to 24 inches front to back, and 30 to 33 inches left to right. While these are the standard and most common sizes, you can absolutely find other measurements as well as potentially order custom sizes. The depth of the sink will also depend on the general use you have in mind. For example, if you will be using this as a kitchen sink and plan to wash or fill a lot of larger pots, the depth should be more than if it were just a veggie washing station.
As one of the most popular materials for kitchen sinks, stainless steel is an affordable and durable choice for your sink. It also works exceptionally well as an outdoor sink, utility room sink, and garage sink. Stainless steel is stain resistant and heat resistant metal. It is very low maintenance and can outlast the countertop it is installed into. If that wasn't enough, stainless steel won't crack or chip over time, or under rough usage. It's highly sanitary making it arguably the best option for kitchens or any other areas where food is prepared.
There are a variety of potential additional features you can search for in a stainless steel sink with drainboard. Some will have multiple drains to speed up emptying out or cleaning of the sink, while others will have pre-drilled holes for faucet fixtures and overfill valves. You may also be able to find built-in areas for sponges, utensils, and towels, as well as areas where dishes can drip dry before being towel dried and put away. You may also notice some sink options include sliding drawers that fit into the sink itself for washing vegetables in a smaller and more compact area.
