Functionality, Accessibility, and Beauty:
Now, you may think it is silly, however, here at Fratantoni Interior Designers we make sure that our clients understand the importance of choosing the perfect sink! Why may you ask? From bathroom sinks to kitchen sinks, this is an appliance that is frequently used throughout the day! Our luxury interior designers have created a guide to sinks, helping you choose the best sink based on you and your needs. As well as functionality, accessibility, and beauty to best fit your lifestyle.
First, a lot of factors come into play when choosing which sink best suits the room. Functionality and beauty are two of the biggest factors, and you do not just have to choose one. You can have a sink that fits your aesthetic while still functional and accessible.
Recently in modern homes, integrated sinks are found in both kitchens and bathrooms. It is used out of the same material as the countertop. Rather than the sink and the counter being separate elements, the elements are fused together creating a seamless transition. Integrated sink materials are commonly made of marble, granite, quartz stones, and stainless steel (in more industrial kitchens). Multiple different finishes are available for these materials such as polished, honed, and antique.
Similar to integrated sinks, vessel sinks are commonly found in modern and transitional homes. However, vessel sinks use materials such as stone, glass, metal, porcelain, marble, and stainless steel. Vessel sinks have unique shapes and sizes, often bowl or rectangular with different patterns and textures. Decorative sinks add an accent to complement the rest of the vanity and bathroom. Featured below is the Bolero Estate with a decorative vessel sink.
Our guide to sinks includes the vessel sink, integrated sinks, and of course you cannot forget about the farmhouse sink! Your kitchen and laundry room are two places that are frequently used and having a farmhouse sink is the perfect addition. Farmhouse sinks are a trend that is not going anywhere anytime soon. Multiple different materials can be used for a farmhouse sink and have countless aesthetic appearances. Functionality allows you to easily wash larger items such as pants, and soak items before you wash them. In the laundry room, functionality is similar to soaking items before washing.
Furthermore, there are multiple different types of sinks that you can choose from for your home. Our interior designer’s guide to sinks includes just some of the multiple different options that you have! Remember that functionality, accessibility, and beauty do not have to be compromised for one another and that there is a sink that has all three for you!
