When we think of all the places we want to show our personality in the kitchen, the sink certainly isn’t one of them. Yet, in the same way, a bold range, retro refrigerator, or graphic backsplash brings new meaning (and big style) to the heart of the home, a design-forward sink can also elevate the room.
When our great grandparents first brought running water into their homes in the 19th century, they often pumped it from a supply tank, usually into bowls or buckets set in a dry sink and metal trough built into a wooden cabinet. Many of the first wet sinks, like dry sinks, were metal lined. Two of the earliest available materials, used for butler's sinks in wealthy turn-of-the-century houses, were copper and nickel silver (a copper, nickel, and zinc alloy often called German silver).
Even the tiniest sinks should be privy to the same thought and care. Sticking with a paired-down terrazzo, this teeny speckled wash space by Signorino for SMAK Food House in Australia is one dreamy way to approach a smaller-than-average sink without overwhelming the senses. Designer and textile connoisseur Veronica Hamlet’s ultra-chic Michigan cookhouse is a lesson in embracing black and white, the bohemian way. The breathtaking veins that grace both her kitchen backsplash and deep marble sink impart an added sense of dimension and movement.
