I am purchasing a stainless steel sink for my newly remodeled kitchen. Have
noticed several different finishes: Mirrored Finish, Matte finish, and Silk
Anyone have any recommendations on which is easier to keep clean and shiny?
I was told that fingerprints show up easily on the mirrored finish. Any
I just put in a new sink with "medium gauge" stainless steel (21, I think).
It's actually not as sturdy as you'd think when it comes to fit and finish.
You can actually see it bend slightly when the faucet is used (if you look.)
I wish I had gone sturdier, although it's in a rental house so it's probably
no problem. I just don't like "play" in things like that, because thing
tend to break or go wrong more often.
21 gauge is not medium gauge, it is tin foil.
18-20 is minimum I'd accept, if i still used stainless steel sinks.
I finally just got tired of them, and when I redid my kitchen last
fall, put in a nice cast iron enamel Kohler.
