Standard kitchen cabinets come in size increments of 3" starting at 9" wide (9", 12", 15", 18", 21" 24", etc). BLANCO offers a wide range of sinks to fit most standard cabinet sizes. Be sure to measure your cabinet size before selecting a kitchen sink.

Choose a bowl configuration based on how you use your kitchen. Single bowl sinks are popular for their functionality and generous bowl size. Multiple users may prefer two bowls for added washing space. Bowl depth is also important to consider, as deeper sinks allow more room for items like tall pots.
