A double sink is more useful than a single sink
Are you wondering whether to install a single sink or a double sink for your kitchen remodel? Imagine the convenience of chopping up your carrots, and sweeping the carrot-end into a garbage disposal.
Switching to a double sink, after using a single sink for so long, is like gaining a helper in the kitchen who organizes your cleanup.
Nearly 80% of kitchen remodelers at Elegant Kitchen Cabinets choose a double sink. Although you can get large single sinks at a premium, double sinks are normally larger.

Have you ever walked into a store thinking you’re going to buy something you saw online, only to find that it’s it’s completely different from what you wanted?
Imagine your kitchen with the perfect granite color, down to the details of the variation per square foot. See yourself ordering your granite over the phone, walking in and discovering that the granite is completely different from what you had in mind.
Thinking all granite is the same is like thinking all people are the same. There’s definitely a clear distinction between the two Giallo’s below, but these granite variations were chosen show just how much they can differ. It’s understandable that some people can confuse these because both their names contain Giallo, which means “yellow” in Italian.
However, Giallo Veneziano and Florito have subtle differences and similarities:

Understanding the variation in granite and the difference in similarily named granite protects your vision of your perfect kitchen. Always check the granite before your contractors install it, because once the granite is cut and set, it’s hard to turn back.
