In an earlier post, we took a closer look at decorative and functional trends in bathroom sinks. We reviewed such trends and styles as vessel sinks, wall mounted sinks, and the latest in top and bottom mounted sinks.
In this post, we’ll examine some trends in kitchen sinks that are both functional and highly decorative.
Here are some trends in kitchen sinks that Plumbwell Services recommends. We can help you select the ideal sink for your kitchen, that will complement the design and ‘feel’ of your current or future kitchen:
- Undermount Sinks
Undermount sinks are installed below the countertop and because of this, they offer a seamless look that makes countertop cleanup a breeze. Because of their style, they can be used with solid-surface countertops such as marble or granite. A more affordable option is enameled cast iron, which comes in a wide range of colors – making this type of sink even a cooler look.
- Integrated Marble Sinks
Integrated marble sinks have a high-end appeal as they seamlessly bevel in with a marble countertop, creating a uniform look. These tend to be found in more contemporary or modern kitchen designs. One major benefit of this design is that the sink is easy to clean.
- Porcelain Apron Sinks
On the other end of the spectrum, porcelain apron sinks have a distinct country flair to them. While porcelain is our favorite, apron sinks also come in stainless steel and copper designs. These sinks are also easy to clean and maintain.
- Iron Island Sinks
These sinks are typically made of enameled cast iron, and are found in a variety of shapes, sizes and depths. As they are separate from the main kitchen counter and housed in an island, they have a sleek modern look and a strong, heat-resistant surface.
- Integrated Quartz Sinks
These sinks are incredibly durable and will retain their strong appearance for years to come. Made of quartz composites, the sink can be integrated into the countertop to give a uniform appearance. Ease of cleanup and durability are their two primary strengths.
