Franke Sinks, Basins

Franke Sinks and Basins

Whether you’re picking out a whole new kitchen or just replacing a basin in the bathroom, the sink isn’t something you would expect to spend too much time on. The counter top maybe, yes, the cupboards definitely, the tap even, but not the sink. The sink takes up an insignificant amount of space, of course, but offers a great opportunity to subtly complement the rest of the kitchen or bathroom. Plumbing fixtures were never more fun.

Sinks for Days

Franke sinks and basins range from simple square aluminium sinks with rounded corners to cool and stylish black basins with a sloped base. More importantly, you can pick from sinks with one large basin, two basins, two basins with a third, smaller basin in between, and more. There are also options with lowered surfaces for putting your dishrack on without having it flow over the rest of the sink or counter, because a kitchen counter is also a sanitary installation. Franke produces stainless steel sinks, undermount sinks, laundry troughs, and more, all solidly made.

Choices, Choices

There are a lot of things to consider when you’re in the market for a new home sink or basin. A single, large basin means it’s easy to wash a large pot or pan; exactly the sort of thing that would also be tough to fit into most dishwashers. On the other hand, having two or more separate basins are helpful if you often prepare more complicated dishes and you’d like to be able to clean stuff as you go, while also leaving room to clean the potatoes or rinse the brine from canned beans. There are also pros and cons to rounded corners. Having rounded corners on the bottom makes the sink easier to clean, but it doesn’t really fit a sleek or minimalist kitchen as well.


A stainless steel kitchen sink is nice and easy to clean because the normally shiny and reflective surface makes it easy to see where grim has built up. This makes it obvious when you need to give the sink a wipe, and clear when you’ve missed a spot.
