Today, decoration is welcome in all the rooms of the house. A kitchen is a real place of life, passage, and relaxation.

The rooms of the house are arranged and decorated according to trends. How about changing your sink?

It is a centerpiece of your kitchen. It adjusts to your decor with style. Play with materials, colors, and microstructure shapes, and energize this space!

What Material is Best for My Kitchen Sink?

Stainless steel: The Professional

Stainless steel is a resistant material and very easy to clean. Its brushed metal effect color brings a modern touch to your kitchen.

There are several types of stainless steel. If the satin stainless steel does not support scratches, the honeycomb stainless steel avoids this problem.

As for the stainless steel microstructure, it prevents scratches and prevents the water from stagnating. These qualities make it the favorite sink in professional kitchens.

Stoneware or ceramic: The traditional

Traditional glazed stoneware or ceramic are some of these materials that combine solidity and ease of maintenance over the long term.

Be careful all the same with solid shocks because they could crack.

You will have the choice among the colors of the shades of gray, brown, or even frank colors like black and white.

Straight or rounded shape, this sink adapts to your desires!

Granite: the elegant

Granite is comparable to natural stone. It is an elegant material that seduces with its nuances of colors, from brown to white and black to gray.

It brings an incomparable charm to your kitchen. Its solidity and resistance to scratches and heat are significant advantages.

Resin: the colorful

Synthetic resin is an alloy of fiberglass and synthetic resin. Light and resistant material, these sinks fit perfectly in all kitchens.

Consider regular cleaning to maintain its shine. Thanks to this type of sink, color invites itself into your kitchen!

You must choose bright and frank colors, red, blue, green or even orange!

And Tempered glass: the luxurious

Tempered glass is particularly original and in tune with the times! It offers a sober and refined design.

Beware of cleaning and traces.

Consider damp microfiber cloths and a glass cleaner to preserve its shiny appearance.

Added to a sink with rounded shapes, you will enchant your kitchen.

Built-in Kitchen Sink for Modern Kitchen Designs

Waxed concrete: the refined

Waxed concrete is solid. It resists thermal shock and impact; it is waterproof and easy to clean. It allows many finishes, raw, smooth, or even satin.

Although it is more expensive, it has the advantage of being custom-built and has a wide choice of colors: Choose the material that suits you. Did you find the perfect color? Then you have to choose its shape.

What is a possible configuration for my sink?

If you do not have enough space, opt for a sink with a single bowl or possibly a tray associated with a drip tray.

However, if you have a large family and you need to wash, rinse, and drain at the same time, it will be more pleasant to have a sink with two bowls and to be able to take advantage of its accessories (drainer, cutting board...).

What shape to choose?

Rectangular sinks are no longer alone on the market! You can also opt for sinks in various shapes and trends.

Classic rectangular sinks optimize space.

They adapt to all kitchens. Square sinks are often small and fit perfectly into small spaces.

Round sinks are less practical for doing the dishes but give your decoration a softer and more fluid appearance.

To be highlighted, your kitchen design must be spacious because it takes up many workspaces.

Corner sinks are generally built into furniture that meets specific characteristics.

What type of sink?

To finish with an aesthetic and practical touch, what type of sink to choose?

The sink to be installed is placed directly on a suitable piece of furniture or support. It must correspond precisely to the size of the furniture on which it is placed.

However, it is not as decorative as a built-in sink.

The built-in sink: the worktop is cut out, and the sink is placed on top. The worktop aesthetically hides the tubs and piping.

The integrated sink: it is one with the worktop. There are no edges, seams, or demarcations, which makes cleaning easier and frees up space.
