Now all that’s left is to choose your sink material. Here are three basic choices:
• Cast iron: Strong and heavy, cast iron bar sinks feature rich colors and work well if you want to fill your sink with ice to chill beverages.
• Acrylic: This type of basin can be a more affordable option that can match just about any kitchen decor.
• Good old stainless steel: Quality stainless steel bar sinks can feature heavy gauge construction with sound-absorption technology.
No matter what you choose, get a faucet of the same style and quality or else your new bar sink may end up looking like a castaway stuck on your kitchen island.
