Timeless Sinks that are Easy to Clean and Disinfect

June 6, 2022

Cleaning and disinfecting your kitchen sink should be relatively quick and painless. The less time you spend cleaning your sink, the more time you have to do the things you love. When you invest in a material such as stainless steel, your sink will be easy to keep clean, and you won’t have to spend much time cleaning it.

The kitchen sink is where most of the household cleaning takes place, so when it comes to choosing a new kitchen sink, you want to make sure it’s easy to clean and disinfect. Stainless steel, porcelain, ceramic, and fireclay are relatively easy materials to take care of. In contrast, other materials such as natural stone (marble and granite), cast iron, and copper can affect how often and how much time will need to spend cleaning and maintaining your sink.

Another thing to consider when choosing your kitchen sink is that some materials are also more likely to trap dirt and bacteria, which can cause drain blockages and other problems. When deciding on a material for your kitchen sink, consider the drain cleanliness and impurity trapping ability of the material and the ease of cleaning the drain.

Below, we feature some of our favourite timeless and easy to clean and disinfect kitchen sinks. These sink materials are a great way to keep your kitchen sink free of germs and dirt. In addition, Barton Bath + Floor recommends a non-porous and high-gloss finish; this is an easy way to keep clean and resist stains.
