Granite Composite Sinks

While it is not a super common or popular kitchen sink material, granite composite is one of our favourites. A granite composite sink is durable and long-lasting, not to mention it just looks great. Granite composite kitchen sinks are available in a variety of natural colours, as they are made of stone. The most common colours of granite composite sinks are charcoal black, grey, and brown. These sinks are only available in matte finishes, so if you want a glossy look, you’re better off with a ceramic or fireclay kitchen sink.

If you’re wondering where the “composite” in granite composite comes from, the sinks are made of a mix of granite and acrylic resin. This brings them in at a reasonable price point, as they are not made of pure granite. You’re getting all the benefits of pure stone without the cost.

Granite composite sinks are scratch and chip resistant and are so durable that they can handle hot pots and pans on their surface. Their colour won’t dull when exposed to the heat of a pot or pan fresh off the stove. If you’re eco-conscious, you can feel comfortable using a granite composite sink. They do not require the use of chemicals during cleaning. You just need to scrub your sink daily with a nylon brush and dry it off to preserve its finish and prevent stains.
