When you start redesigning your kitchen, we believe that one of the best elements you can add to this important room is a copper kitchen sink.
Aside from the fact that copper kitchen sinks are stunning and can act
as the centerpiece of your kitchen’s design, there are many other
reasons to select this type of sink.
1. Added Value To Your Home
As real estate agents and designers will tell you, the two rooms in
your home that provide the most return on investment are the kitchen and
the master suite. Any money you spend on these two spaces is certain to
add value to your home. When you redesign the kitchen, a copper kitchen
sink can really set your kitchen apart from the rest.
If you ever sell your home, a unique kitchen with a copper kitchen
sink can make a huge difference for buyers. A potential buyer is sure to
remember this design element, and that can be all it takes for someone
to purchase your home over someone else’s home. If you intend to stay in
your home permanently, you will love the look of the copper kitchen
sink for years to come.
2. The Durability Of A Copper Kitchen Sink
While a copper kitchen sink might look delicate, they actually are
quite durable and can last for decades. Where stainless steel can be
scratched and ceramic sinks can chip, a copper sink actually becomes
more beautiful as it ages. It is important, however, to purchase your
copper kitchen sink from a reliable source. All of our copper kitchen
sinks are handcrafted in Santa Clara del Cobre, Mexico, known throughout
the world as the home of the world’s most talented coppersmiths. They
artisan craft each copper kitchen sink using heavy, 14-gauge copper
which will stand up to the demands of washing pots and pans.
Copper kitchen sinks
also are easy to maintain. You never need to use any harsh cleaners to
maintain the sink, a gentle soap and a quick rinse and dry will keep the
surface clean. We also recommend using a special wax polish from time
to time to protect the copper’s patina. It is very important to give
your copper kitchen sink a thorough rinse whenever you place acidic
foods in the sink, such as lemon juice or vinegar.
3. A Healthier Option For Your Kitchen
It has been said that the kitchen sink is one of the most
bacteria-ridden spots in the home. That may be true if you have a
stainless steel or ceramic sink, but a copper sink actually kills
bacteria as well as fungi, molds and viruses. You truly only have to
rinse the sink with water or perhaps a very mild soap to keep it clean
and fresh, the copper will work naturally to repel all of the nasty
4. A Style To Suit Any Kitchen
Ceramic sinks and stainless steel sinks are perfectly fine, but they
all pretty much look the same. Ceramic sinks come in black or white or
off-white, but there are really few specialty designs available. Our
handcrafted copper sinks are available in a huge variety of designs and
finishes. We have copper farmhouse sinks, under-mount copper kitchen sinks and prep sinks.
This includes single well sinks, double well sinks and even a few
triple well sinks. Many sinks feature unique design elements such as
handcrafted vines and leaves or other scroll work. If you don’t see
exactly what you want, contact us and we can build a custom sink that
suits your style.
