When it comes to renovating the kitchen, the sink is one of the most overlooked features. But our sink needs to be practical and big enough to fit all dishes for quick and effective washing up.
It’s so important to get the sink right. Do we need one tap or two? Is one bowl enough, or do I need a dual-bowl sink? So many questions, along with the durability of the sink.

Why have one sink when you can have two? If you have a large family and need extra washing-up space or you like to rinse plates separately from washing, then a dual sink could be the answer.
Most dual sinks have different bowl sizes; however, this one has two bowls perfectly identical and aligned. It also has four faucet holes, which gives you the flexibility of having between one and four taps for your sink.
The sink uses soundproofing technology to eliminate noise when in use. It also features an 80 percent cover of thick rubber pads underneath to further reduce washing-up noise.
Made from heavy-duty stainless steel, the sink is durable and should last. It’s also dent, stain, and scratch-resistant.

This sink is highly resilient and provides you with ultimate durability because of its material. Being made from black onyx granite, it also looks stylish and will stand out in any kitchen.
The sink’s granite construction makes it able to withstand heavy use, making it great for commercial use, too. It can resist heat up to 650 degrees Fahrenheit, so it can have hot pans placed into it; something others can’t.
Easily washable with soapy water, the smooth surface repels against all stains, including stubborn grease, wine, and coffee. It’ll also resist discoloration and chemicals.
The sink is resilient against impact and thermal shock and minimizes vibrations and noise. It’s also naturally hygienic thanks to its non-porous surface. Food won’t stick to it, either, preventing germs and bacteria from spreading.

It’s a dual sink, so you have two wash spaces to separate your plates from your cups or your soapy water from your rinsing water.

If you’re lucky enough to have a large kitchen with plenty of worktop space, then we recommend this triple-bowl sink. It looks effortlessly stylish with its all-over brushed finish, and the funky shape and is convenient for a large household.
It also gives you flexibility in that it can be installed either flush-mount or under-mount, unlike many of its competitors.
Each sink area has a separate plug system, with a basket strainer drain attachment included. This allows you to easily trap and remove any food waste that tries to make its way down the plug.
Thermal insulation against condensation and sound insulation against noise is provided by the heavy-duty padding around the sink. This is further supported by large rubber pads attached to each side.
Curved corners on the sink make cleaning much easier, especially as sinks can harbor a lot of bacteria.

- Lifetime warranty.

Much smaller than most sinks, which tend to be over 30 inches, this model is practical, yet space-spacing at 26 inches wide. The depth is still enough to fit lots of dishes, though, standing at 10 inches. This depth also prevents water from splashing over the sides as you wash the dishes.
You also receive a couple of add-on options, including a faucet and a handy soap dispenser. This is a convenient way to purchase all the essentials in an easy-to-buy format.
80 percent of the sink base is covered with thick sound-absorbing pads, which reduces noise while washing up. It also features sound-barrier technology to offer a quieter kitchen experience since it stops sound from traveling. This is ideal for partners with different sleeping patterns hoping to avoid waking one another at breakfast time.
If you can’t stand the condensation buildup from regular sinks, this one is coated with a protective undercoating to prevent this. As a result, it’s long-lasting, making a great, long-term investment.
The bottom is sloped to encourage proper water drainage. The angle is carefully cut and optimized, however, so glassware won’t fall and break.
