Belfast & Butler Sinks Auckland

Butler sinks were built slightly wider and shallower than Belfast models, to encourage the conservation of water while still fitting into large kitchen cabinets. Belfast sinks were usually deeper as limiting water used wasn't necessary.

There has been a recent resurgence in the popularity of traditional kitchen sinks, which tend to be big and robust, and the Belfast has to be the main contender.   Usually made from fireclay ceramic, though also available in stainless steel, these sinks are manufactured as a double bowl as well as the traditional single bowl, and can be purchased in white or cream.  In addition to the traditionally square Belfast sink, there are variations such as the bow fronted and fluted front designs.  Their simple shape, large bowl and ceramic finish make the Belfast sink easy to maintain and practical to use.

Belfast sinks are generally located beneath the work surface, whereby the front of the sink remains visible.  Although these sinks are usually installed flush with the neighbouring cabinets and a slight overhang of the worktop, there are actually several ways of positioning them in order to achieve the most desirable look.

Belfast sinks combine well with most work surfaces, however, laminate worktops are not recommended due to the difficulty in sealing them, which leads to damage caused by water penetration.     

All ceramic items can vary in size by up to 2%, due to their handcrafted design.
