Are today’s homeowners looking to purchase single bowl or double bowl sinks? “The trend we are seeing now is that the single bowl is growing in popularity,” Gutkowski noted. “Today’s consumers are becoming more and more knowledgeable and researching exactly what they want. People are really learning how to maximize the sink base capacity. When thinking about what type of sink you are considering, you need to think about how the sink is to be used, if you want a garbage disposal, where you want the drain hole (whether it’s on the back or right side), if you want a single or double bowl and how you are going to use the sink in terms of food prep and cleaning. These are all important factors.”
When upgrading your sink, be sure to consider the Franke waste disposer to further enhance the simplicity of your overall cooking, preparation and cleaning process. “The Franke waste disposers are energy efficient and operate with a D/C motor at a higher revolution per minute,” said Melissa Evans, Franke’s product manager. “This results in a faster grinding time and less energy consumption. The unit itself is lighter than most so it’s easier to install as well.
