Solid Surface Sinks, Acrylic, Stainless Steel
In your price range, I would stick with stainless. You should be able to get a decent gauge stainless for that, unless you are going for something really wild.
$300 would allow for a decent stainless sink and cheap faucet
Be sure to check Habitat For Humanities outlet store if you have one near you. I picked up a couple of very nice Koehler cast iron units for $35/each.
Other than that I’d say go with the stainless, and $30 worth of sound deadening sheet makes a huge difference in how nice an inexpensive sink sounds, and a bit of spray foam sure helps it hold the heat longer.
Thanks, what is decent gauge for stainless?
I'm unfamiliar with sound deadening for sinks.
The higher end stainless sinks have a thin membrane of self stick rubber on the underside to help mitigate the sounds from the sink.
The OP didn't define his/her terms sufficiently to receive a meaningful answer. What are the prime directives?
1. Fit within the existing cut out?
4. Choice of colors/finishes?
5. Single, double or 1/3-2/3?
6. In-stock-big-box or custom order
7. Since faucets were not specifically mentioned, it should be assumed the $300 budget allows for a wider choice of sink?
1. Fit within the existing cut out? - No
2. Durability? - Yes
3. Style? - No
4. Choice of colors/finishes? - No
5. Single, double or 1/3-2/3? - Single
6. In-stock-big-box or custom order - Either works
$300 is the budget for the sink only
