Your kitchen sink can be either completely functional or both functional and an aesthetic contributor in your kitchen – the choice is yours! There are many styles and materials that will influence the purpose that your sink serves in your kitchen. Of course, our professional team can assist you in deciding on this, but it is also great for you to have an understanding of the options available, so let’s run through some of these below!
Modern kitchen designs often require every element, from the appliances to the finishes, to subscribe to a common theme or look. Part of this is your sinks, which form part of the finished look of your kitchen and can either add to or devalue the overall appeal. Modern options include; under-mount sinks, which are discreet and allow for easy clean-up, granite composite sinks, which effectively reduce the noise of general sink use and wear harder than most other materials, and kitchen island sinks, which can be constructed using a variety of materials but deliver the same great look to a space that is fundamental in modern kitchen designs.
A classic looking kitchen is nothing without a timelessly beautiful farmhouse (or apron) sink, which extends over the lip of your countertop and provides ample space for its core purpose – washing dishes! Couple this with a commercial-style mixer and you have not only a great function-focused sink, but also a sink that also acts as the cherry atop your classic motif. The materials for you to choose from are countless, but we simply adore a farmhouse sink made from either cast iron or fireclay, both of which accentuate the ageless beauty of this masterpiece.
Looks for a tight budget
Something that causes endless frustration in our office is the misconception that those on a budget will not get an evergreen kitchen deserving of a centrefold in Architectural Digest. This is simply not the case. While your budget may restrict your options, there are endless varieties of sinks available that fit both form and budget! Stainless steel sinks, for example, though inexpensive when compared to other materials, can be designed in many ways that add to the aesthetic appeal of your kitchen. Top-mounted sinks are no longer a simple double basin, purpose-focused item too. Call us today and find out more about the variety of options available to you!
