Factors that Affect Stainless Steel Sink Prices

These are your options and how they affect price:

  • Size: Stainless steel sinks are made in widths from about 15” to over 40”. Sink depth ranges from about 6” to 12”. The more capacity the sink has, the more it will cost.
  • Configuration: Your choices include single, double and triple kitchen sinks, also called single-bowl, double-bowl and triple-bowl. We’ve produced sets of guides for each of these sink styles.
  • Types: Here, your options are topmount (drop-in), undermount and farmhouse or apron. An apron sink has an extended front that fits over a sink cabinet rail. A true farmhouse sink has larger capacity, and the rail on the sink cabinet must be removed. See our guides to all of these types of sink for a wealth of information on each.
