If you’re searching for something a bit more on the daring side, why don’t you consider a black undermount kitchen sink? While white sinks have been all the rage in homes everywhere, black still hasn’t taken the lead as a popular choice. However, like white, black sinks are not only stylish but will never date and is always in fashion.
When it comes to style, there isn’t much competition that can match a black sink. While you can find them in oval, rectangular, and square shapes, the most popular shape is the oval. The good news is that an undermount kitchen sink will be perfectly suited for almost any kitchen. Because of the sink’s unique angle, there is no need to worry about running the risk of scratching or gouging your countertop. Also, because the basin is mounted above the cooking area, you don’t have to worry about splatters ruining the countertop or creating a puddle in the sink.
Because of the popularity of the black undermount sink, there are now a large number of manufacturers producing these sinks. What makes these sinks stand out from their counterparts is the fact that they can be installed with a push of a button rather than a hammering or a drilling motion. The beauty of the undermount sink is that installation is quick and easy. This is accomplished by using one half of a standard garbage disposal unit, along a narrow metal blade that is inserted into the top of the basin.
In the case of a black kitchen sink, the blade is heated using an electrically conducted heating element that makes the water shimmer with a heat that is slightly stronger than you would find in a glass bowl. When the water is heated, it begins to drain through the small opening at the top of the sink. On the other end of the spectrum, a stainless steel kitchen sink has no rim and extends out straight from the countertop. Stainless steel sinks are generally available in either a single, double, or even triple bowl configuration.
Many of the stainless steel models come with a splash guard which protects the area underneath the bowl from splashed water. Some of the drop-in models require no splash guard while others come with a built-in one. Another unique feature found on the drop-in kitchen sinks is the sandstone pattern found on their surfaces. A sandstone pattern allows the surface of the undermount kitchen sink to reflect light in a subtle manner that makes it appear as if it has a shine. There are several black finishes to choose from including black oxide, ebony, and mother of pearl. With the availability of so many different color choices, there is sure to be a style to fit your personal preference.
When it comes to durability, there is little debate. Granite is one of the most durable materials on the planet. Black granite is one of the most durable and most affordable surfaces you can find. The durability of a kitchen sink granite surface makes it an excellent choice for anyone who needs high quality, the affordable kitchen sink.
One other thing to keep in mind is the fact that a stainless steel undermount kitchen sink with a black granite surface can cost significantly more than other materials. However, it is worth it because you will not have to replace the bowl very often. The price of the black granite along with the quality of the sink will determine how often the bowl needs to be replaced. As with any investment, you will want to make sure you do not overpay for your product. Many manufacturers offer a lifetime warranty on their products. You should make sure you research all of your options before making your final selection.
Finding a black kitchen sink with stainless steel or black undermount composite quartz top is much easier than it was just a few years ago. Today there are many different styles, colors, and designs available. With a little shopping around, you will be sure to find the perfect product for your home. You must do your homework and choose wisely.
