How do I choose a kitchen sink?

Selecting a kitchen sink

When it comes to selecting a new kitchen sink, you can't be too careful. After all, you will most likely have to live with your choice for quite a long time. You'll need to consider the material the sink is made from, its shape and color, and mounting type. Do you want self-rimming, under-mount, or flush mount? When choosing the material and color of the sink you need to think how it will coordinate with your kitchen's decor, particularly your counter-top. The shape of the sink you choose will depend on what you will be using it for. Do you want one bowl, two bowls or three bowls? How deep should the bowls be? Finally, how your sink will be mounted is dependent on what kind of counter-top you have.

Need more info, e.g., pro/cons of one tub versus multi-tub sinks, reverse two-tub sinks, different sized tubs (accommodates for soaking large pasta dishes, one or two garbage disposals, and in which sink tub to install related to dish washer. Most articles mention consideration of readers preferences but if the reader has never had the opportunity to use a one tub sink or a reverse-tub configuration how would they know whether they would. Also what about the depth of a sink. Some are very deep and difficult to use especially if one is short.
