Sinks and Faucets. Thursday , February 01st , 2018 - 09:01:42 AM
Schlesser advises consumers renovating their kitchens — or just looking to update the faucet — to visit a kitchen design showroom as well as the chain home stores to compare the products and "feel the difference." A good fixture should have substantial heft and the best materials even in the details: the latest ceramic disc valve rather than plastic to control water flow, and a heavy-duty woven sprayer hose instead of vinyl.
Some sinks are available with "tile-in" edges. Designed to mount flush with a tiled surface, they offer a built-in, grouted sink edge. Self-rimming, drop-in sinks work well with any countertop material but have a raised lip that may, depending on the sink material you choose, interfere with cleaning.
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.
