The most economical and profitable option for the kitchen is the installation of a stainless steel sink. It can be made by stamping or a more expensive, welded method. Sinks for kitchen from a stainless steel get most often because they do not rust and do not darken under the influence of water and oxygen. Steel sinks heat resistant. Even if you put a hot pot in the kitchen sink and turn on cold water, nothing will happen to the metal. Steel, despite its high strength, is elastic, so often the plates falling into the kitchen sink do not break. There is no pore on the surface of such a sink, so it is easy to clean, no bacteria accumulate on it.
Stone sinks have a higher price because the stone is more expensive and looks more presentable. Sinks from a stone are very convenient in operation. This material, like stainless steel, is not afraid of sudden changes in temperature and does not deteriorate under prolonged exposure to moisture. Such shells are not afraid of any mechanical impact, with the exception of glossy surfaces that are afraid of sharp objects. Also, they are not afraid of aggressive detergents, which contain alkali or acid. If small scratches appear on round stone washers, they can be easily removed by fine sandpaper. Also, the stone sinks do not accumulate bacteria, so they are ideal for installation in the kitchen and in the bathroom.

Relatively recently, glass round sinks appeared on the market. They are made of tempered glass, so these shells withstand heat drops and a small mechanical effect. Glass shells are also not afraid of cleansing with various powders and gels, and there are no harmful bacteria on their surface.
However, these products have drawbacks. Even small drops of water are noticeable on the surface of the glass sink, so its surface should be wiped well. All communications can be seen through the glass surface, so the pipes should be as beautiful and new as the sink itself. In addition, the glass sink is several times more expensive than the ceramic. And if there is no possibility, it is better to purchase a cheaper model. Not often, but still there are shells made of wood. They are usually made to order and installed in bathrooms, made in ecostyle.
Round shells come in all kinds. For small bathrooms, a round washbasin with a bedside table is suitable. Installing such a bedside table allows you to save space: you can hide in it not only drain pipes, but also hide cleaning products, shampoos, shower gels, soap and other trifles, for which there is always not enough space.

This sink does not require special installation, but takes a lot of space and is expensive. Also in the spacious bathroom, you can install the sink invoice on the countertop. The stone tabletop is screwed to the wall and a sink is placed on top of it. If the tabletop is large, you can put two sinks - it is convenient and stylish.
