Our Lovely Copper Kitchen Sink
Our friends Lindsey and Esther love to share about amazing products they find and share them on their Instagram feed @bayareabuzz. They recently installed a Sinkology sink and shared with us their experience.
When we first moved into our house one of the things I noticed right away was the black kitchen counters and black kitchen sink. They were fairly new and in great condition so everything was fine except for the color. Fast forward 4 years and scrolling through Instagram I found Sinkology.
Sinkology produces products that are handcrafted of highest quality and most importantly affordable. They specialize in Fireclay, Granite, and Copper sinks with all types of sink set ups: Drop in, undermount, and farmhouse. Their sinks come in standard sizes with varying features such as number of bowls, faucet holes, and colors.
We decided we didn’t want to do a huge project of tearing out both the counter and sink since it would be a huge project and the counters were perfectly fine. We knew the sink was our main concern since with a black sink we couldn’t tell if it was ever clean! Also it made the kitchen feel so dark and unwelcoming. We had a drop in sink before and went back in forth between making it a “bigger” process by switching to a Farmhouse Sink or sticking with a Drop In Sink. When we scrolled through their Copper drop in sinks, we were in love!
Sinkology’s Copper Sinks are all hand-hammered by artisans and made from the highest quality pure copper available. They have various styles and color variation to fit your style and needs. We decided to go with their Angelico Drop-In Copper Sink that was the same exact dimensions of our previous sink but had one big bowl instead of the 2 bowls. We went with 4 faucet holes so we would have enough holes for the soap dispenser, a garbage disposal air gap, and room for the faucet cover. We also opted for one of their all-in-one kits with the Ashfield Pfister Faucet, Disposal Drain, and Care Kit.
One we chose and received the sink, installation was actually a breeze and only took about an hour to complete! It was basically, take out old sink, drop in new sink, hook up the pipes, seal, and wait for seal to dry before the sink was ready to go! Sinkology provides step by step instructions in both written and videos on their website
Using and caring for our copper sink has been a breeze. We apply their copper Care solution that came with our kit for a simple sealant that is water-based and environmental friendly. One thing to note about Copper sinks is that it is a “live” material that is constantly changing. Copper has a natural patina that constantly changes color depending on different substances it comes in contact with and constantly changes over time. We love that our sink look is constantly changing and growing with us over time!
