There is plenty to discover about our collection of luxurious ceramic sinks and their corresponding cabinets; keep reading to learn more…
CERAMIC BELFAST SINKS
Belfast sinks are a popular choice for classic farmhouse kitchens. This style of sink usually has one side exposed once installed, which shows off the lustrous ceramic and transforms a practical kitchen component into an eye-catching feature.
Our lovely Belfast sinks are available in a single or double design, offering styles to suit the requirements and dimensions of any busy kitchen. Our collection includes designs from reputable brands such as Rangemaster and RAK, all of which are made from high-quality fireclay ceramic.
Ceramic is made from clay, earthen materials and water. This mixture is crafted into the desired shape, and then fired in a kiln at high temperatures and glazed, creating a heat and stain resistant surface. As ceramic sinks are made individually, using natural materials, customers should always anticipate a +/-5mm tolerance when planning their kitchen layout.
To incorporate Belfast sinks seamlessly into oak kitchens, we provide a selection of Belfast sink cabinets that complement the rest of our cabinet range, measuring between 600mm and 1200mm wide. These specialist cabinets are composed of 18mm-thick solid European oak panels, providing robust support for your sink.
CERAMIC OVERMOUNTED SINKS
Overmounted ceramic sinks are a variation of the traditional farmhouse sink, evoking the essence of a classic country kitchen whilst incorporating other practical elements, such as a built-in draining board and a useful ‘half’ bowl.
Our magnificent inset ceramic sinks offer single bowl and 1.5 bowl options, affording you some handy additional washing-up space should you require it. These high-gloss sink units look tremendous alongside real wood worktops, which together serve to enhance the overall appeal of a kitchen design and create a beautiful blend of textures.
To make installation as easy as possible, we provide purpose-built sink housing cabinets. These base kitchen units can accommodate a variety of sink sizes, ranging from 600mm to 1200mm wide. All these cabinets are made from solid oak, and can be purchased with oak kitchen unit doors and high-quality Blum™ hinges.
