When it comes to custom kitchen remodeling, it’s often the little choices that have the most impact. Therefore, it’s important not to cut corners or rush through decisions when discussing your options with your home builder. After all, you want to end up with a kitchen that is as beautiful as it is functional. To give you some ideas, here are four sink styles that are trending in 2015.

  1. Utilitarian

Many homeowners who are building or custom kitchen remodeling in 2015 choose to go with sinks that perform a variety of functions. In addition to a simple faucet and garbage disposal, many of today’s sinks come with built-in and adjustable cutting boards, strainers, and drying racks to cut down on prep and cleaning.

  1. Undermount

Undermount sinks are installed underneath your countertop, rather than having a lip that sits on top of it. This style complements many modern interiors by providing a seamless look to the counters. It also makes cleaning up after prep extremely easy: just sweep crumbs directly into the sink.

  1. Apron

Apron sinks, also called farmhouse sinks, exploded onto the remodeling scene with the rise of shabby chic, and seem set to outlast that particular fad. Homeowners enjoy the functionality of the deep, single basin sink that can easily hold a Thanksgiving dinner’s worth of pots and pans.

  1. Bar/Prep

Many homeowners who are remodeling their existing kitchens choose to supplement their existing sink with a smaller prep sink. After all, who hasn’t attempted to fill a saucepan or rinse vegetables all while trying to avoid the growing mountain of dirty dishes occupying the sink below? With a prep sink, you gain a second water source that’s easy to access and keep clean.
