I went to Home Depot to look around for things I might need on my renovation and I spent the most time looking at sinks. WOW so many options. All I know is that I hate my sink because it is not deep enough and I hate my faucet because it does not extend all the way to pots that I might need to fill up with water while sitting in the sink. The sink I have now came with the house, the faucet I purchased and I just so happened to find the box and was disgusted that I paid $102 for it on clearance. Disgusted because for a hundred bucks I should love that bad boy forever, instead I have buyer’s remorse.
Once I saw the choices of sinks out there, I decided I no longer want a stainless steel sink. I want a sink that is going to coordinate with either my counter top (black or gold) or my appliances (white). The material choices are stainless steel, cast iron, and acrylic, composite and copper. I wasn’t interested in the cooper and we can throw out the stainless steel and cast iron…mainly due to price. Unfortunately, like most things major, I based my decisions on price. I have to look at the acrylic sinks. I have no idea what I am looking for so just looking at the style here are the ones I liked:
Thermocast Newport dual mount with deep sink on left 4 holes for faucet/sprayer by default but I can order it with 1 to 5 holes. Comes in 31 colors 33x22x9 both bowls rectangular $158 rated 3 1/2 stars
Thermocast Beckenridge dual mount with deep sink on right, 1 hole for faucet/sprayer by default but I can order it with 1 to 5 holes. Comes in 32 colors 33x22x9 both bowls irregular shaped $199 rated 4 stars I think I like this one the best but not in shiny black. I wish this one came in the granite finish. i added the second photo from the manufacturer so you can get a better look at the style of it I really like that one and even though the sink is odd shaped the hole is still rectangular.

The choices of faucets are ridiculous!
PS… I just read this at work today: The General Assembly of 1979 designated Granite as the official Rock for the State of North Carolina. (Session Laws, 1979, c. 906).
The State of North Carolina has been blessed with an abundant source of “the noble rock,” granite. Just outside Mount Airy in Surry County is the largest open face granite quarry in the world measuring one mile long and 1,800 feet in width. The granite from this quarry is unblemished, gleaming, and without interfering seams to mar its splendor. The high quality of this granite allows its widespread use as a building material, in both industrial and laboratory applications where supersmooth surfaces are necessary…Granite is a symbol of strength and steadfastness, qualities characteristic of North Carolinians. It is fitting and just that the State recognize the contribution of granite in providing employment to its citizens and enhancing the beauty of its public buildings.
Sooo that means I should be able to find some cheap granite here right???
