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 germs.
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 scrollwork. If you don’t see exactly what you want, contact us and we can build a custom sink that suits your style.
