Porcelain is another popular material commonly used on kitchen sinks in older homes. Porcelain kitchen sinks are not as durable or as stain resistant as some other materials.
The second most utilized material is a solid surface kitchen sink which can quickly be either under-mounted or surface-mounted and is also available in a wider range of options than stainless steel for instance. Solid surface materials have grown in popularity in the last few years and are now available in a wide range of color to help you match your kitchen counter tops. While solid surface sinks are not totally scratch-proof they can resist most scratches and when you do get one it is typically able to be buffed out. Additional benefits include being resistant to both heat and stains.
Stainless steel kitchen sinks is the most popular material for kitchen sinks today. Along with being easy to clean and install it come in a very wide range of prices. On the downside is that it can scratch, dent, and scold easily if not taken care of properly. Also it intensifies the sound of running water and the garbage disposal because it is not as good at deadening sound as some other materials are. If stainless steel is what you are going for make sure you check the gauge of the material. The lower the gauge of metal the thicker it is which will help minimize the downsides of stainless steel. One other option to look for in your next stainless steel kitchen sink that can help is an undercoating that further muffles sound.
