Kitchen sinks can make a statement or blend into the background. Lately, trends have been skewing toward centerpiece sinks that catch the eye, and trends for 2020 and 2021 are no exception. Whether a homeowner is planning a complete kitchen remodel or just a timely sink replacement, here are four trendy ideas to guide the selection process.
Extra-large and deep kitchen sinks, whether they’re single or double bowl designs, are popular once again as homeowners focus on utility. Triple bowl designs may seem like they’re giving more space, but make sure to check the measurements and subtract for internal dividers. Single bowl sinks with extra width and depth are often the most useful since they can fit the largest roasting pans, appliance drawers, or long utensils.
Dual or Prep Sink Pairings
Sometimes just one sink isn’t enough. Installing a second sink on an island or distant countertop is a great way to divide the cleaning and dishwashing chores. Large parties and family gatherings are easier than ever with multiple sinks in the kitchen. If there’s no specific need for a full-size second kitchen sink, a bar or prep sink is a great option for expanding washing facilities.
Mixed Metal Finishes
Many homeowners have long attempted to carefully match finishes throughout the kitchen, especially for metallic finishes. However, it’s now trendy to try mixed metal combinations instead. Try a stainless steel sink with an eye-catching matte black faucet. Mixed metal finishes can create any modern or traditional style homeowners desire when used with care.
For a true statement piece that can also free up valuable space in a smaller kitchen, consider a wall-mounted kitchen sink. There’s no need to lose countertop space or give up necessary storage just to accommodate the plumbing. These sinks are generally traditional or vintage in style, but modern designs are also available.
