Its shiny surface and durable nature make it a popular choice. It is also considered a hygienic sink option, since it doesn't clog drains with nasty food bits.
Brushed nickel faucets are electroplated, which means that nickel is applied over brass. They shine less due to this nickel coating, because of which fingerprints and watermarks are not highlighted or visible on the faucet. During the 1930s, nickel went out of fashion because the coating started to come off; this problem was fixed using PVD or Physical Vapor Deposition technology. This technology makes the faucets costlier than the other types, but it has also made them of very good quality, meaning they hardly need to be repaired, and do not tarnish easily.
Now, let's move on to know some of the drawbacks of a soapstone sink. This stone, as compared to the other stones like granite, has a tendency to scratch easily. So, if you wash some heavy utensils in the sink, there is a possibility that its surface will get chipped over time. On the brighter side, all such nicks on the soapstone surface can be taken care of by sanding it with a sandpaper and then applying mineral oil on it. However, if the impact on the soapstone sink is huge, big cracks can develop on its surface and thus, you will have no other option, but to replace the sink all together.
