Choosing a kitchen sink
When choosing a kitchen sink, design, size and type of installation are all very important.If you are renovating, it is helpful if you take a couple of measurements inside your cabinet with the width and depth of the cabinet that will be accommodating the sink. If you bring those measurements along to your consultation with our Kitchen & Bath Classics expert they will help you choose your perfect sink. If planning new cabinets, we can work with your cabinet designer to match the size needed. Blanco has a number of options available to choose from, with sinks made from Stainless Steel, Siligranite and Fireclay.
The Blanco stainless steel sinks are 18 gage and have a wide variety of sizes and styles to choose from. The Blanco Attika sink with Steelart design, has a special elevated rim, making it a trendsetter showcasing popular architectural designs. The Blanco Practika laundry sink is an interesting undermount sink that has an integrated washboard for scrubbing.
The Blanco Siligranite sinks have a composite with 80% granite within them, creating a scratch and stain resistant sink. New colours available like Truffle and Cinder, introduce designer colours into your kitchen design. The Blanco Diamond with a low divide is a large sink with a lower centre divider allowing it to be used as both a single and a double sink. At Kitchen & Bath Classics we have many Blanco sinks on display so you can see the new colours and designs.
The Blanco Fireclay sink design is an undermount with an apron front, perfect with Granite, Quartz or other solid surface countertops.
Experts will need to know what type of countertop you are planning to use, whether laminate, granite, quartz or other solid surface tops, so we can suggest a drop-in or under mount option for your sink.
Blanco also has a variety of Kitchen and Prep faucets to choose from in both chrome and stainless finishes with some featuring accents to coordinate with Siligranite colours.
Convenience and Innovation all in one
An environmentally responsible solution to your food waste management is an Insinkerator Waste Disposal. Today’s disposals only use about 1% or less of a household’s total water consumption and electrical usage. You can add a waste disposal to any new kitchen design or renovation; you just need to add the electrical requirements.
Insinkerator waste disposals. The Dura-Drive Induction motor uses centrifugal force to spin the waste against a grind ring and break it down into fine particles. We also have septic safe disposers, such as the model Evolution Septic Assist.
The Evolution Excel features the Sound Seal Plus noise reduction technology. This results in 60% less noise than a standard disposal. The MultiGrind Plus allows for more types of food waste with its three stage grind system. With its powerful 1 hp motor you can dispose of most of your food waste.
The Evolution Compact is great for homes with less cabinet space underneath. It is a ¾ hp disposal, more compact in size than the 1 hp models. This disposal works in a renovation or new construction, keeping in mind you need to add the electrical supply.
If mounting your disposal on a sink on an island, we suggest a separate button control to mount on the countertop so you don’t have to mount it on the side of the island.
