Single bowl or “farmhouse” kitchen sinks are a great addition to any kitchen as they are comprised of a single, spacious bowl that can accommodate your largest dishes and cookware. Your oversized baking sheets, skillets and other large pieces will fit into the sink, allowing you to give them the best, hassle-free clean.
Whether you fancy granite, copper or good old stainless steel, your sink options, colors and stylings are plentiful. With the Diamond Blanco, you have two installation options – you can choose to install it as a kitchen undermount or drop-in kitchen sink. It is also made of hard-to-scratch granite and features an offset drain location which increases your workspace area as well as the storage space underneath.
In addition to contemporary stylings and effortless care, these sinks have some technologically savvy options as well. Custom made bottom grids keep food and dishes off the sink, making rinsing debris effortless. Meanwhile, the Kraus sink is enhanced with soundproofing technology that absorbs vibration and minimizes noise when the sink is in use for an overall quieter kitchen experience.
