Marble Surface
Modern Kitchen Sinks

Along with the cooker and fridge, the sink is at the heart of any kitchen. It needs to be practical and suitable for your own particular needs. If you have a dishwasher, for instance, you may only need a single-bowl design if you’re rinsing, rather than doing lots of washing up by hand. If you don’t have a dishwasher, you may prefer to go for a larger, double-bowl variety that can cope with all manner of pots and pans. Think about how the material you choose for your sink will fit with the overall style of your kitchen. From super-shiny, ever-practical stainless steel to classic white fireclay and composite designs in jet black or gunmetal grey, each material has its own distinctive look. 

Undermount sinks seem to be most popular in modern kitchens because they make for that sleek aesthetic for which contemporary style is known and loved.

Metallic sinks don’t only look sleek and contemporary but they are generally easy to maintain. That’s why they’re so popular. Virtually immune to staining, their only issue maybe scratching, if you aren’t careful during cleaning.

The beauty of stainless steel is that it’s easier on the wallet, and it goes well with any kind of material. Wood – check, concrete – check, weathered wood, Corian, granite, and even marble can withstand the cold of stainless steel.

A modern stainless steel kitchen sink is usually a rectangular deep basin with a sleek faucet. There are many variations on the theme, though.
