We recently built a new home with a blend of traditional and modern styling (my wife loves reading *** catalogs, *** magazine, ***, etc.). This sink was the perfect fit for the kitchen she wanted. The deep single bowl and the undermount works really well with our granite countertops and subway tile backsplash. We originally bought a different sink but returned it when we saw this one because we wanted the quality and quietness of the heavier gauge stainless steel (16 is a better gauge than the more standard 18) and because it came with a custom fit rack. Well worth the extra money. Our plumber and granite subs were able to install this sink without any problems. We love this sink and would absolutely recommend it without reservation!
