Careful consideration is needed for both design and functionality. A sink should obviously look good and be a real focal point but it can either make or break the kitchen design.
After the aesthetic aspect, you must also consider how the sink will cope with the specific demands of a busy kitchen. If you have a dishwasher and only use the sink for the large pots, pans and baking trays, then make sure the bowl is big enough!
If you do a lot of washing up and entertaining then maybe a 1.5 bowl sink would be the best option. A model with two bowls and a range of integrated accessories, such as a colander or a chopping board that slides might be more functional. Either way, we are here to discuss the possibilities and help you to find the best model sink for you.
We offer a full range of materials including Stainless Steel, Composite or Ceramic sinks from leading manufacturers such as Abode, Reginox, Franke, Blanco, Villeroy & Boch, Shaws of Darwen, Caple and Rangemaster.

Integrated Waste Disposal Units
You may also want to consider the many benefits of installing a domestic waste disposal unit meaning fewer trips to the wheelie bin and a substantial reduction of kitchen waste going to landfill!
An innovative appliance for virtually any food waste, the InSinkErator is the ultimate in food waste disposal; from left-over meat bones, through to stringy and fibrous foods like banana peels, this unit can whisk your food waste away in a matter of seconds.
Designed and engineered to the highest quality, they are manufactured from premium materials to ensure they can handle more types of food waste and make far less noise whilst doing it.
Have you thought about installing a Boiling Hot Water Tap?
The new kitchen ‘must-have’, is the tap that immediately dispenses boiling water (and filtered drinking water)!
Although the initial cost of a boiling hot water tap can be considerable when comparing to the humble kettle, its worth noting that some manufacturers’ tests on the efficiency of the steaming hot water tap, shows they can be up to 40% more efficient.
Basically there are three different types of instant hot water taps – a single tap that provides either just boiling hot water or cold and boiling water, then you have the 3 in 1 models which provide normal hot and cold water and the addition of boiling or near boiling water, and finally the latest development in kitchen hot taps is the introduction of the 4 in 1 models. These taps offer (as the name suggests) four supplies from one single tap – normal cold water, normal hot water, boiling or near boiling water and finally filtered cold drinking water.
Choose between a separate boiling water tap with accompanying mixer tap, OR the Quooker Flex or Fusion systems which offer one single tap for hot, cold and boiling water.
The system is ultra-safe, super-efficient and available in eight tap designs and three finishes and with the patented high-vacuum insulation the Quooker’s standby usage is just 3 pence a day – much more efficient than multiple use of the kettle!
