Topic: Question on kitchen platform and sink

Need Advice on which way to go for a kitchen platform - should it be granite on top of plywood platform the modular Italian kitchen way or should it be a civil platform with wood cupboards that are semi modular. Which of these is suitable considering indian cooking styles, durability and longevity?  Would also request advice on kitchen sink - should it be stainless steel, fibre or polished granite ?

Hi viji,

The italian style is the lates trend. Yet, i would evaluate it with the kind of materials and the quality of wood, even if ply. try using a civil structure to support the counter top. The weather and moist also has its impacts on the wood...may it be solid or ply. Specially ply, and its laminated or veneered surface does make a diff.

IF its a one time installation ..do go in for the granite sink..built in..would be really a one time job. u can really get it polished after yrs of use....it will still look new.

 

good luck viji, do try getting more options.

I would suggest granite countertops as have become the first choice of homemakers and kitchen users due to their elegant styles. After finishing, they offer great texture and structural composition. Granite counter tops are hard and tough and add to the value of any home. Being a natural stone, granite is a popular choice for its traditional beauty and resilience. Granite counter tops with cool polished surface offer an excellent surface for rolling out pastry dough.

For kitchen faucets I would say a heavy gauge stainless steel is a great choice, although it can scratch. But still more people buy stainless-steel kitchen sinks than any other type. Fireclay sinks are very durable since they are high-fired clay.
