The Kitchen sink – reinvented?

Kitchen Sink Trends 2019

The popularity of industrial style kitchens has favoured stainless steel as a material that has an edge. However, there are many other materials that fit the diverse range of individual, kitchen and lifestyle needs. There will always be a place for kitchen sink for not just washing pots but increasingly for preparing food.

The wish list for sinks includes:

Size: Flexible bowl sizes and different configurations to suit your kitchen, and personal style. Single, Double or the 1.5 bowls remain the popular choice but many require larger single bowls for washing larger trays, pots and pans that won’t fit in the dishwasher. For many this includes the removable shelves from the over cavity too.

Material: Whilst stainless steel dominates the market because it’s easy to live with, use and clean and there are other materials that can be considered by the discerning user, seeking something different and stylish. The rise in the use of stone, granite, quartz and solid surface has led to sinks is complimentary materials, styles and finishes becoming available.

Quartz in natural colours including white, cream, stone, grey and black.
