Stainless steel and ceramic sinks are popular in kitchens, but did you know another great option is fast making its way into homes around the world?
BLANCO Silgranit sinks are primed to become everyday heroes in the kitchen, and for good reason. As a company, BLANCO has dedicated over 30 years to the research, development and production of composite material, honing the material properties of its products all the while. And Silgranit is one of its most exciting rollouts yet.
Silgranit is a composite material made of around 80 per cent quartz sands, which are the hardest constituents of granite. The stone-like surface, which is also pleasing to the touch, is not only extremely robust, but also very low-maintenance.
Notably, this hardwearing material has outstanding cut and edge resistance, so you could, for instance, cut things directly on its surface using a sharp knife without worry of damaging it. Not only is Silgranit resistant to foods that are acidic or that contain strong natural dyes, like lemon juice or wine, but it also repels water and dirt, and has an antibacterial effect thanks to its Hygiene+Plus formula.
With the kitchen increasingly becoming the heart of the home, function has to go hand in hand with aesthetics. Silgranit is an innovative material that opens the way for all sorts of sophisticated sink designs that tap into contemporary interior trends, whether in a linear look that takes its cues from modern architecture, in a subtle, classic style, or one that fits in with a Scandi-inspired home.
The planning options, which are already considerable thanks to BLANCO’s extensive range, are further enhanced by the large and carefully curated selection of attractive colours. They range from deep black and classic white to grey tones like anthracite, rock grey and alu metallic, and through to warm shades like jasmine, tartufo and coffee.
BLANCO also has a large offering of mixer taps that can be specially coordinated with the Silgranit colour palette. This gives you incredible design freedom to create matching or high-contrast looks to suit your taste and interior, and to make the sink area a truly standout feature in your kitchen.
