Sinks and Faucets. Tuesday , February 06th , 2018 - 09:08:30 AM
Brass, copper, chrome, nickel, gold-plated, oil-rubbed metals, matte or shiny finish, a smooth satin sheen and even faucets with texture are now available to consumers in all price ranges. In terms of sheer sales volume, says Judd Lord, director of industrial design for Delta Faucet Co., chrome is still the leader.
According to Jack Healy, the increasing popularity of stone sinks is part of a larger design trend toward Old World style natural materials, such as stone, wood and copper, and away from man-made materials like stainless steel. Jack, who‘s been selling what he terms "functional art" for more than 10 years, says that people want utilitarian objects to be beautiful, and stone is a good way to have both form and function. And, he notes, your kitchen won‘t look like your neighbor‘s, because every piece of stone is intrinsically different.
There are many kitchen sink materials to choose from, including stainless-steel, enameled cast iron, fireclay, quartz silicate and solid surface. A high-quality, 18-gauge stainless-steel sink will take a lot of abuse. Enameled cast iron has endless options for shiny colors. Solid surface or quartz silicate is better at resisting scratches. Solid fireclay is just as durable, but limited in regard to color choices.
