Ten Ways to Re-Imagine your Sink

The sink is a utilitarian element in your home which no doubt is usually an afterthought in the design process…but I am telling you today that you should ‘reimagine your sink’. Wikipedia says that the sink evolved from a simple bowl in the early 1800’s into a bowl or bucket integrated into a wooden cabinet with a trough built on the top lined with zinc or …yikes…lead! Splashboards were often added on the back wall as well as drawers and shelves. Sinks have come a long way…we now have sinks made of stainless steel, enamel, cast iron, marble, concrete, copper and many other materials.

Your sink works hard for you, so you must get the quality which will give you the level of performance which suits your lifestyle. Additionally, you can add style and convenience with various unique shapes and applications. Whether undermount ( most functional) , vessel ( paying homage to the birth of the sink) or overmount ( inexpensive option), apron front ( for that country feel) , you have many options these days.  Here are 10 fabulous sinks which can inspire you to get you on the road to an open mind when planning your sink purchase.
