When considering the size of the kitchen sink, you have to consider either how large your old sink was or, if this is a new home or new kitchen you have to decide how large the sink should be. If this is an existing kitchen, and you are not changing your counter tops, you will probably need to go with a sink similar in size to what you previously had. The hole is already in your counter, so your options may be a bit limited in size. If this is a new kitchen, or you are replacing counter tops in your existing kitchen, you are not limited to anything in terms of size.
