Help with Prep Sink
Hi! I'm trying to pick a prep sink for the island. We're trying to get an absolute black granite and will have Superwhite cabinets. I think I can now have a maximum width of 18". It had been 15" but I think I was saving 3" for an 18" wine fridge only to find that they come in 15" or 24".
Any ideas in general for the sink? What are the pros and cons of having the sink made out of the same granite? I like the look but am worried about costs and whether it would leak as I assume it gets cauked together somehow. I was also thinking stainless steel but when I googled silgranit, it looks almost black. I seem to recall a 16 gauge is better than 18 gauge (from back when we renovated our current kitchen with a Ticor sink.) However, in looking at Kraus, I only see 18 gauge for the prep sink. Is that because it is less used than the main sink so the gauge isn't that important?
Lastly, how deep should it be or is there a standard depth?
Please advise. I need to make a decision quickly.
Thank you so much!
