Design Kitchen Sinks: A Guide to Choosing

Choosing design kitchen sinks is a challenging task. Thanks to our guide, you’ll discover the best design kitchen sinks to suit your tastes!

The sink is not only a practical element but also a key piece in the kitchen’s aesthetics. The variety of materials, shapes, and styles offers a wide range of choices. You might opt for a stainless steel sink for a modern touch, or prefer a cutting-edge material like Kuarzite for a minimalist style.

Our detailed guide will lead you through the distinctive features of each type of sink, providing advice on how to match this element with the rest of your kitchen. We will also consider the dimensions and layout, helping you optimize space without compromising style.

With the new information, you’ll be able to make an informed decision and choose the design kitchen sink that best fits your home environment, combining functionality and elegance.

In the guide, you’ll find:

The best materials for a design sink

Kuarzite and steel are perfect materials for the sink, offering durability and hygiene without compromising on design. Kuarzite, an innovative creation by Evhoc, combines granite and acrylic resin, offering an elegant aesthetic similar to natural stone.

On the other hand, steel is a classic and versatile choice. Appreciated for its durability, corrosion resistance, and ease of maintenance, it perfectly suits contemporary designs, ensuring functionality and style.

Kuarzite

Kuarzite should not be confused with quartzite: the initial "K" is intentional. It is a unique and innovative material developed by Evhoc, born from a composition of granite and acrylic resin. The main qualities of Kuarzite design sinks include:

  • Waterproofing
  • Non-toxicity
  • Long-lasting durability
  • Resistance to shocks and scratches
  • Resistance to thermal shocks
  • Ease of cleaning

Steel

Steel is a commonly used material for designing sinks, thanks to its characteristics and versatility. It is mainly composed of iron and carbon and boasts extraordinary strength and remarkable durability.

Its ability to resist corrosion is particularly appreciated in humid environments, such as the kitchen, where frequent contact with water and detergents could affect other materials.

Available installation options for your new design kitchen sink

When it comes to selecting the sink for your design kitchen, installation options play a crucial role in achieving the desired look.

The range of choices available offers the possibility to customize your space according to aesthetic and functional preferences. However, there are two main categories of sink to choose from initially: the top-mount sink and the undermount sink.

The most popular option is the top-mount, easy to install and suitable for virtually all countertops. It involves installing the sink directly on the surface of the countertop, giving the kitchen a harmonious and traditional look, making the sink the focal point in the environment.

For those seeking a cleaner and more modern aesthetic, the undermount sink is the right choice. In this case, the sink's edge is hidden under the countertop, creating a smooth and protrusion-free surface.

This solution not only adds a minimalist touch to the kitchen's design but also simplifies cleaning operations, eliminating potential obstacles. The undermount sink is an ideal choice for those with sufficient space under the countertop and are looking for a contemporary look and uncompromising functionality.

The right mixer to complete the sink's design

In a guide on design sinks, we couldn't overlook a fundamental element: the mixer. There are many models available on the market, each designed to fit the type of sink and the kitchen's style.

Consider aspects such as ease of temperature adjustment, practicality in daily use, and stylistic integration with the rest of the kitchen elements. A well-chosen mixer can become a distinctive and functional detail that adds value to your kitchen environment, completing the desired look and enhancing your kitchen experience with a touch of elegance and practicality.

Here are the main options you can find in the Evhoc store:

  • High and straight spout: With or without an integrated retractable spray for easy washing of pots and vegetables.
  • Swan neck: Available in various materials and finishes such as steel, nickel, or polypropylene, with the possibility of having an integrated retractable spray.
  • Umbrella spout: Innovative and impactful faucets with an umbrella spout. High quality and durability, with a round or square spout for a touch of design in the kitchen.
  • Extendable: High quality and durability, with an extendable spout to reach every corner of the sink. Integrated spray with two jets, standard and wide spray.
  • With integrated spray with single or double jet: Finally, there is the option to choose a model with an integrated spray, with a single or double jet for greater convenience.

Essential accessories to add elegance and practicality to the kitchen

To enrich your kitchen with a touch of elegance and practicality, the right accessories are essential.

Grids, besides giving a modern look, are essential for optimizing cooking and creating delicious dishes. Cutting boards, available in various shapes and materials, not only add style but are also essential for ingredient preparation. Trays, versatile and functional, help maintain order during preparation and cleaning. Finally, baskets, intelligently designed, offer additional space and organization for various utensils and accessories.
