Every color of the rainbow carries with it connotations. However, the dreariness that is often associated with
black transforms to elegance and sophistication in the context of fashion. The little black dress is a must-have by
any woman’s standards, and I challenge you to find me a man who does not have a black suit coat. This reputation of
black as elegant has made its way off the clothing racks and into the kitchen. If you are looking to add a touch of
sophistication to a typically down-to-earth room, consider opting for a black sink.
Black sinks offer more than just aesthetic value to the kitchen, they offer easier maintenance. White porcelain
and stainless steel sinks tend to show scratches and dents more vividly, and discoloration is more prevalent. Also,
the black sinks camouflage the every day wear and mess that is bound to accumulate in any home.
By purchasing a black sink, you now have the option of buying black appliances that will accommodate it nicely.
Black toasters, coffee makers, and electric can openers carry many advantages of the classy black sink. Dust and
dirt will be concealed easier than if the appliances were standard white or chrome.
Of course, incorporating a black sink into your kitchen does not mean that it will become a dark and dreary
room. The solid black would be a wonderful accompaniment to colored towels, tablecloths, or curtains. Bright colors
will awaken the room to present a lively air, while a more subtle color simply prevents the room from appearing to
have a lack of emotion. However, the classic black and white look, with maybe a few added touches of chrome for
pizzazz, can never be overdone.
Black kitchen sinks offer all the choices that other sinks would. Before purchasing your black sink there are a
few common decisions to consider. First, you must consider the financial aspect of renovating your kitchen as you
would with any home project. Black sinks cost around $200 to $300 depending on the material you choose. After you
have decided this is a step you are going to take, visualize yourself doing the dishes or other work in the sink.
Something as simple as choosing a single basin when a double basin would have suited you better could make or break
the joy you feel after the project is complete.
For those of you who are renovating the whole kitchen as opposed to just the sink, plan the rest of the kitchen
as you go. Maybe you will find a color or pattern for accents that you want to incorporate. Bring a sample with you
when picking out the new black kitchen sink so disappointment will not run over you when it is installed in your
