Sink Areas Finally Getting Some Recognition!
So far, 2018 has produced some very pleasant new kitchen trends. One, is sinks that serve multiple purposes and functions. Clients, especially those who like to entertain, are drawn toward trough sinks that can be used to chill wine or shellfish, grow herbs and function as a regular sink. Our clients appreciate the wow factor a trough sink has on a new kitchen, especially when the sinks are equipped with LED lights that change color.
The kitchen sink can be a design statement, yet too often, it is an afterthought. Sink sizes, shapes and available materials influence the overall look and feel of a new kitchen. Functionality is another consideration, from the noise that results from running water or placing pots, pans and plates in the sink, to the ease of use. There are sinks today that function as complete workstations, providing another area in the kitchen for meal preparation, chopping, washing, serving and entertaining. And many of our customers, when asked if they want more than one sink in their new kitchen, respond with a resounding yes.
The kitchen faucet is the showpiece of the kitchen area and happens to be the most used appliance in the home. Manufacturers are making smart faucets that can be activated by apps, a wave of the hand or a tap of an elbow. Smart touch faucets are greatly appreciated by home cooks, especially bakers. Similar to a gorgeous outfit, accessories can make the sink area and kitchen more functional and beautiful. Instant hot and cold water, soap dispensers, air gaps, colanders, strainers, chopping boards, dish racks, drying mats and protective grates are among the numerous accessories to enhance the functionality, look and performance of a kitchen.
