Flexibility of size. "You can make your granite kitchen sink any size you want; you’re not limited by what the manufacturers have to offer. Most of our ‘trough’ sinks are 6 feet long. We usually limit the depth to 9 inches because anything deeper is not ergonomically comfortable," De Giulio says. Often his company installs granite sinks with multiple levels inside, such as a 4-inch or 6-inch-deep section.
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.
You might have to go back in time to find a greater use of stone than in today‘s new and remodeled homes. Already a classic countertop, backsplash and flooring mainstay, stone is now morphing into the most utilitarian tool in the kitchen — the sink. The same characteristics of strength and beauty that make stone a best-selling countertop material also make it a natural for sinks.
