If we’ve got to stand at the kitchen sink and wash dishes, prep veg or unclog a drain then you may as well make sure the view is pretty. No, not out of the window - we mean the view directly below you!
Time for a new kitchen sink, is it? Let us guide you through some beautiful, modern and exciting kitchen sink ideas that are going to cost you less than 200 quid. Yes, that’s right. It’s possible and we’re looking forward to showing you.
We should remind you at this point that while we’re offering you a selection of cheap kitchen sinks, that is only in price and not quality, Nothing we stock at Tap Warehouse is below par when it comes to quality, craftsmanship, materials and guarantee. These kitchen sink ideas are to ensure we meet the needs of every budget - and we’re sure you’ll agree that there are so many choices and styles to choose from.
So, let’s get going…
1. The All-Rounder
For those who just want a sink that’s going to look good and offer practical and functional design, then here’s the choice for you.
This classic stainless steel inset kitchen sink has waste and overflow included and offers a reversible design so you can install it with the drainer on the left or right depending on your preference. The bowl is a practical 1.5 design in size giving you a little extra room for washing those dishes and pans.
The stainless steel construction makes it corrosion and rust resistant and this manufacturer offers a 10-year guarantee.
But, what's a new kitchen sink without a swanky new tap to match? Here’s what we recommend with this particular sink.
The Vellamo Hero Standard Mono Mixer Tap as pictured above in this lovely brushed nickel adds a little more edge to your stainless steel sink, while being more resilient to steaks and fingerprints in the process.
The dual levers make it easier to find the right temperature and the tap is fitted with ceramic disc cartridges to ensure that there are no drips after use. Plus, this tap has a whopping 10-year guarantee, too.
You also have the option to upgrade to include a filtered cold water setting by opting for the "Vellamo Water Filter Kit" option available on the Vellamo Hero product page or sold separately.
The filter removes any nasties from the water leaving you with that bottled water taste straight from the tap.
If you don’t like the brushed nickel version of this tap you can also opt for a polished chrome finish.
2. The Modern Touch
If space is limited or you just love the compact vibe of modern kitchens then this undermount kitchen sink is a divine choice. It’s manufactured from medical grade brushed stainless steel with a reversible 1.5 bowl design to suit your style. It includes the waste and overflow kit and is also suitable for a waste disposal unit if you fancy an upgrade.
This product sits completely inside your surface for that fantastic minimalist look and is a perfect addition to a modern kitchen looking for a new kitchen sink that adds style and function all at the same time.
Now, for the tap. What would suit and indeed complement this contemporary kitchen sink?
We’re sold on this Vellamo Inspire Pull Out Mixer Tap as pictured above.
Like things neat and tidy? The deck mounted design of the Vellamo Inspire adds even more glamour to your kitchen sink area looking sleek and chic next to your undermount sink.
It is also made from medical grade stainless steel so extremely robust and sanitary and it features a pull out head making it easier to control when washing pots, pans and prepping food.
The spout, which can swivel left and right, also has a rotating 360°head for even more versatility and design.
Finally, keep that stainless steel looking exquisite for years to come with the natural sink cleaner from Reginox. This cleaner is used to maintain and protect the steel of the sink and can be used as part of a weekly cleaning regime.
3. All About Traditional
Moving on to those who love a more rustic, country kitchen - we just had to show you this stunning Butler & Rose ceramic sink.
It comes with an integrated weir overflow and basket strainer and looks just stunning as a focal point in your traditional kitchen.
The exposed design gives it an authentic edge while sitting neatly in your countertop for a slick and tidy aesthetic.
The ceramic basin is made with stain, scratch and heat resistant fireclay and is easy-to-clean with a high gloss finish looking extra decadent in your space. This also makes this new kitchen sink low maintenance with an antibacterial and non-porous surface keeping it looking perfect for longer.
And if you’re on the lookout for taps to match such a striking sink design, we have just the suggestion.
The Butler & Rose Abbey is a traditional mono kitchen mixer tap that may look like it’s from the 19th century but has all the contemporary functions we desire from a tap today.
There’s a swivel, elongated spout and elegant twin crosshead handles adding to that rustic vibe - these allow for independent hot and cold flow control and feature old-fashioned ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ markings.
The brassware is corrosion resistant and finished in a stunning polished chrome. This tap has a lengthy 10-year guarantee, too.
Finally, to keep this tap looking perfect we would always recommend using the Cramer specialist tap cleaner over a harsher chemical option. It easily removes limescale and other marks without harming the plating and making it shine!
