Beyond the Basics: Innovative Kitchen Sink Ideas

Hardware, Appliances, and Accessories Kitchen Design and Style

We've all been down that kitchen remodel rabbit hole, dreaming about the perfect color palette or the coolest new gadget for their Chester County residence. But how often do we stop and consider just how important a sink is? Beyond its basic functionality, it can be a chic focal point, transforming the overall aesthetic of your culinary haven.

And if you're in the loop with the latest home design trends, you'd know "seamless" is the keyword catching everyone's attention. Let's delve into some lesser-known sink designs that perfectly encapsulate this trend.

 

Undermount sinks (versus the traditional top-mount) are popular for their modern design, while the trendy seamless sink -- i.e., sink and countertop melded together into one piece -- offers the ultimate sleek look.HGTV

What is the most popular kitchen sink style?

The current chatter around modern and contemporary design isn't just about being on-trend. It’s the allure of clean, sleek lines and the undeniable appeal of expansive, uninterrupted spaces. Not only do they catch the eye, but they also offer a practical side—imagine a kitchen where there's no nook or cranny for grime to hide, thanks to the absence of seams, cracks, or grout lines. Feeling intrigued?

That’s exactly why we want to share a few sink ideas you might not know about.

 

Corian Sinks

Corian Sinks

 

Most people know about Corian countertops. They are popular in the sustainable design world due to their eco-friendly production and their extreme durability. What many don't know is that the kitchen sink can be made from the same material your countertops are made from, yielding a completely seamless design from countertop to sink.

Because Corian is fabricated in a shop, they can mold the countertop and sink to specific measurements. There are a variety of Corian sink shapes and sizes to choose from, and voila! When the project is done - you have a very fluid and consistent transition from countertop to sink and back to countertop again.

 

Granite Sinks

Granite sinks are a relatively new kid on the kitchen sink block. In fact, they aren't granite but, rather, a manufactured product that uses a resin, granite pieces and other materials. Because there are granite quartz crystals involve, they have a luster or natural stone "sparkle" that Corian does not. They also come in a variety of shapes and sizes and we bet they will end up becoming one of the most popular kitchen sink options due to their durability. You can read more about them in our post, Granite Sinks: Both Beautiful and Practical.

 

Integrated Sinks


Certain countertop products can be integrated into sinks as well as countertops, providing that fluid look home designs are after these days. Examples of materials that can be used for an integrated sink include stainless steel, soapstone and even quartz. Often these sinks are shaped like a farmhouse sink, which makes for a fun juxtaposition of traditional and modern.

 

Undermount sinks

While not entirely seamless, undermount sinks. Rather than a drop-down sink, that leaves a big rim that catches debris and gunk where it abuts with the counter, undermount sinks are installed underneath the countertop. That way, you can sponge countertop debris over and into the sink without any obstructions to trap gunk and moisture. Even if the sink is made from a different material than the countertop, the fact that the countertop is unobstructed by the sink edge makes for a more seamless visual effect.

Make sure to ask the reps at the kitchen design showroom to show you the latest and greatest in kitchen sink design. There's an entire seamless world out there waiting to be explored.
