Sinks and Faucets…a Kitchen Counter’s Top Companions

Sinks and Faucets…a Kitchen Counter’s Top Companions

July 12, 2018

No other area in the home is as hardworking as the kitchen sink. Multiple times a day, it serves as command central for all the things you do in the kitchen—and then some! This group of products (sink, countertop, faucets, and accessories) has a ton of responsibility. And they have to stand up to some pretty rigorous demands. While you’re doing your homework on the vast array of countertop options available for your new space, don’t forget to think of the sink and faucet! 

Today’s options of sinks and faucets are anything but boring! Whereas stainless steel and chrome used to be the norm, designers and homeowners are branching out, looking for anything that adds a little color, texture, and style to the sink area. Here’s a look at some of today’s top trending sinks and faucets, all of which will make a great companion to your new kitchen countertop.

Black is Back 

According to California Faucets, Matte Black is the new black. Offering a dramatic departure from stainless steel and chrome, black has broken through the barrier of traditional finish colors in a big way. Black brings warmth and elegance to a room, offering a refreshing change from the norm. California Faucets offers a variety of premium black hues for its recently-launched Kitchen Collection including Matte Black, Carbon Black, and Black Nickel.

Industrial Chic 
 Brut Kitchen Faucet and Point-of-Use Faucet in Satin Nickel Finish. 

Whether the setting is an urban loft, a country villa, or anything in between, the rustic/industrial look is a hot trend right now. With the rustic/industrial look as their signature style, Sonoma Forge offers Made in America kitchen and bath faucets with the look of hand-forged metal. The Brut series is reminiscent of raw plumbing parts. The tall tap with elbow spout makes a strong design statement, and the pull-down spout offers the sink area functionality that’s required.

Handmade Sinks
Farmhouse style Premium Handmade Stainless Steel Sink 

Continuing the trend of handmade products, handmade sinks are gaining in popularity. For example, the Premium Handmade Stainless Steel sink from Hardware Resources is made from flat, high-quality steel. They’re bent and welded into geometric shapes that make the best use of the sinks’ interior working space. Efficient, stylish, spacious, sleek, and sound proof, the sinks are specifically designed to give home chefs a professional-grade work environment. Reinforcement plates prevent bending and buckling and an added insulation layer further enhances durability while reducing sound when items are placed in the sink.
