Did we just find our dream sink? Helping to break up the strict black and white color palette at work within this Barcelona apartment by Raul Sanchez Architects, an unexpected hint of brass delineates the sink and hardware from its surrounding landscape. This metallic beauty is a testament to the power of contrast.
Laura and John Lazet had already repaired decades' worth of remuddles to their mid-1800s farmhouse in Mason, Michigan, by the time they decided to tackle the kitchen. They knew they would keep the room's design aligned with the rest of the house. They were also fortunate enough to have found a sketch of the kitchen's early layout and have a few original, untouched pantry doors on which to model the cabinets.
Unlike the bathroom lavatory, which might have been made of marble or china with fluted edges, the kitchen sink was likely to be prosaic in both shape and material, and to have become chipped and stained over the years. So when it came time to update the rest of the room, off it went to the local landfill.
To make this space truly inviting, consider hanging stylish pendant lights over the counter. If cabinet space is at a premium, install a pot rack and show off your cookware. With an island sink, you can even supervise homework or crafts while you cook. Using the space to write out your weekly schedule or grocery list could make organizing that much easier. (Keep a container of chalk next to the sink so it’s at the ready.) This would also be a great place to hang a corkboard to house favorite recipes or magazine clippings.
The shabby-chic movement has inspired a mecca of kitchen trends. Chief among them, reigns the farmhouse sink. Up there with granite countertops, super islands, and stainless steel appliances, the farmhouse sink slowly become a staple in cookie-cutter homes with a rustic flair. But what if we told you there’s more to sink design than this standard and expected go-to?
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.
Black on black on black has never looked better. The secret to this high-impact scene? Consistency. In addition to the coordinating countertops and backsplash, we love that the interior of this perfectly square sink follows suit. Only a tiny brass faucet gives away the sink’s discreet location.
