Copper Kitchen Sinks
Copper is all the rage right now, and a copper sink can bring a high-end and bespoke look to your kitchen. Think about it, how many kitchens have you seen with a copper sink? The answer is likely none because copper is not the first material people think of when they’re purchasing a new kitchen sink. A copper sink is sure to be a showstopper in your home, especially when paired with a marble or granite worktop and neutral cabinets. Copper is durable, long lasting, and easy to clean, making it the perfect kitchen sink material.
Another benefit to a copper kitchen sink is the fact that antimicrobial copper kills almost 100% of bacteria that cause healthcare-associated infections. The effects are continuous and never wear out. According to the US EPA, copper is naturally antimicrobial without any added chemicals and is completely recyclable. That means your sink can be recycled if it eventually runs its course in your kitchen.
A copper kitchen sink can look great in any style of kitchen, as many finishes are available. We love the way they look in a farmhouse or rustic kitchen, as well as in industrial or modern kitchens. They can also elevate the design of a Tuscan kitchen, as you can find copper sinks with ornate details on them.
