Latest Kitchen Sink Trends
With the latest kitchen sink trends, what’s old is new again. For 2023, some trending sinks are classic but newly rewarded for minimizing your environmental footprint. Stainless steel sinks are versatile, durable and easy to clean. And the classic porcelain sink will stick around forever! But more eco-friendly options—like fireclay and copper sinks—are emerging. They are sturdy, damage resistant, and can help your sink earn a worthy spot as the center of your kitchen.
When updating any interior design, it helps to check out what other people are doing. Here are some popular styles of kitchen sinks that might fit perfectly in your home:
· farmhouse sinks – On the rise again. Also known as an apron sink, this sink has a large, deep basin. It has an exposed side and needs a certain aesthetic to fit in.
· Undermount sinks – With a seamless finish, these sinks are all about the low profile. They’re mounted underneath the countertop, so they’re better suited for solid surfaces and countertops (compared to tile or laminate).
· Food preparation sink – Imagine a kitchen where the food preparer or someone just wanting to rinse their hands doesn’t have to wait in line behind the person rinsing dishes at the main sink. A food prep sink is a smaller, second sink that changes everything – freeing up traffic jams and allowing a prepper access to water at a different location. Although small, they are great for kitchens that make a lot of homemade meals. Think of them as the perfect complement to your main kitchen sink.
· sink workstations – Trail-blazed by the Galley Workstation, this somewhat new category of sinks is all about the accoutrements and the idea that your sink is more than just a sink. By choosing different cutting boards, display surfaces, grates, and surfaces with cutouts for strainers, serving bowls, utinsel holders and more, your sink really does become a workstation or a serving station. We sell quite a few Galley Workstations and believe the original remains the tops in the category they invented, but admit that there are certainly other manufacturers with copycat setups on the market.
