High-quality washing machine
Modern cuisine should not only befunctional, it must also have an original interior design to make it comfortable to work and relax. It is desirable that the chosen interior of the kitchen corresponds to the general style of the apartment, but if this is impossible for some reason, then any other, as close as possible, will do. As in any living room, here the maximum comfort is achieved due to the elements of the furniture present. In particular, it is a table, chairs, built-in kitchen appliances, cabinets, bedside tables and, of course, a sink. The installation of a sink is a separate item in the kitchen equipment.
Material for making sinks
Traditionally in our apartments a washbasinInstalled in the corner of the kitchen, closer to the entry point of cold water. But very often this arrangement can disrupt the aesthetic appearance of the kitchen, if the sink is not combined with other elements of kitchen furniture. Therefore, often the installation of washing is performed elsewhere in order to give the kitchen design originality and naturalness.
As a rule, in most cases, stainless steel and porcelain stoneware are used for the manufacture.
Ceramic granite sinks are less commonly used in the kitchen, as they have a high weight and are not resistant to mechanical damage.
Mostly they are used in cases where stainless steel is not combined with the surrounding interior.
Porcelain is the most popular material for a bathroom than for a kitchen, as it is unacceptable to use items made of steel.
In the kitchen, we are more accustomed to washing stainless steel.Stainless steel has goodcharacteristics. And products from it do not lend themselves to mechanical damage and corrosion, as well as to the effects of chemical elements, often included in detergent components.
There are three types of stainless steel sinks:
Installation of the washer type is executed in a special opening, cut out in the table top. Its edges fit perfectly on the surface of the countertop.
The built-in sink is much harder to install, but the effort is worth it.
The edges of such a shell are even, designed to ensure that its surface is flush with the countertop.
This is achieved due to the fact that the landing sitethe laminate is carefully removed from the surface of the countertop, and the sink is installed in the grooves made. As a result, they get both surfaces on the same level, they look like one whole.
The third option is less common, since thisThe old method, used even when installing steel kitchen sinks. This kind of products has edges curved in the shape of the letter "t", the installation of the sink is performed not even on the countertop, but on the curb itself, since the height of the bends is equal to the wall thickness.
Sinks from porcelain stoneware in the kitchen are usually mortise and are installed in the countertop.
Other types of installation are not used in the kitchen. In the bathroom, in most cases, washing from porcelain stoneware is fixed by means of special brackets on the wall surface.
Regardless of which type of sink will be chosen, it must be remembered that its installation should be carried out strictly in accordance with the level and without any distortion.
It is also very important to know that the pipe running from the riser directly to the sink should be placed at an angle of about 3 degrees for each meter.
