For over a century, in contemporary kitchens, stainless steel sinks have been a staple design feature. They have a timelessness to them that can’t be matched by passing trends. Not to mention that they are a very budget friendly sink to acquire. But now there are new and different sink options that people are leaning towards if they are looking to add a unique design feature to their kitchens.
Even though stainless-steel sinks will always be a timeless, in style sink to have, if you are looking for alternative options, our team here at Teka Kitchen has come up with a few different options for you to consider.
If you are looking to add a little extra something special to your kitchen sink, here are some alternative materials and finishes that will give you the unique looks you desire.
Granite sinks are rising in popularity among a lot of people. But we are going to let you in on a little secret, they aren’t entirely made of granite, but they do include crystals and flecks from granite or other natural stones. With this, you can enjoy having a non-porous sink, which is more hygienic. These come in virtually any shade and finish you want. This helps with a seamless look if you already have a quartz or granite countertop! Another great thing about this particular sink is that they go with virtually any space, which allows them to be very functional with unique styles and shapes.
These sinks have been growing in popularity due to their versatility. They can be incorporated into modern and traditional designs. Not to mention that they are big! With basin/container-like shapes which can hold many, many dishes and keep the counter clear. These monstrous sinks used to only come in either white porcelain or stainless steel. However, they are now offered with different finishes which can include wood, natural stone, fired clay, or copper.
If you are looking to increase the functionality of your kitchen, getting a workstation sink is the best way to do this. This is especially advantageous if you have a small kitchen and not a lot of counter space. Accessories such as slide-over cutting boards, colander inserts, and drainboards are available inserts for this versatile sink that help to optimize its functionality while keeping messes minimized. There are also additional racks that can be utilized in order to keep things like food and dishware from being in the sink. This helps to preserve the sink in order to keep it looking like new for longer, especially for light coloured sink finishes.
If you like a modernist kitchen, a seamless sink is the perfect touch. Not only is the look aesthetically pleasing but it is also more hygienic. In traditional sink styles, the seams where the countertop and sink meet is a breeding ground for food bits and bacteria. It can also harbor grime, moisture, mold and mildew.
Textured Apron Fronts
Just like how the farmhouse sink has recently gained popularity, textures apron fronts have also been increasing in demand. If you are not familiar with what these are, it’s the front facing section that is exposed on the farmhouse sink in front of the countertop. Usually, this part is the sink but now, if you want to add a little more spice to the mixture, you can get removable/interchangeable covers to put on the front of this sink.
