The kitchen sink has come a long way from the standard stainless or porcelain models of yore. Today’s kitchen sink styles are available in a long list of materials and with a wide range of features you might not have considered. At EuroCucina 2016 in Milan, brands from across the globe exhibited their latest designs, which include things like retractable faucets and sink top accessories.
This design by Arclinea is a double sink that is clearly two separate under-mounted stainless steel basins. The centrally mounted faucet serves both sides. It used to be that a double sink was one large under-mounted basin with an internal divider. At EuroCucina, we saw more of this style, which has a wide margin of the counter between the two basins.
New styles are also available when it comes to drains. This extra wide single kitchen sink shown by Comprex has a flat bottom that allows drainage around all the sides. The main drain is hidden under the flat panel.
A flat-bottom kitchen sink with a little extra flair, this model exhibited by Elam has a printed panel at the bottom, which adds interest to a plain counter design.
A closer look at the stylish, geometric design. Even though it’s a print, it’s still very versatile thanks to the neutral shades. In addition, you could always switch out the bottom panel for a solid color.
Perhaps you don’t want the flat panel in the bottom of the sink, but still dislike the look of a traditional drain? This model from JDIAS has a more stylish drain option that keeps the counter and sink looking sleek..
In some ways, the space of the kitchen sink could be more useful for food prep. To this end, many brands we’re displaying sink styles that include a ledge to accommodate sliding accessories like cutting boards or drainer panels. This model on the ernestomeda stand is a good example.
