3. Wider Variety of Materials and Colors

While stainless steel and fireclay have reigned as go-tos for kitchen sinks, homeowners are becoming more familiar with alternatives. The sink shown here is Elkay’s Quartz Luxe, a mix of quartz and high-performance, UV-stable acrylic resins. These sinks come in a variety of colors and can withstand heat up to 535 degrees Fahrenheit. Another advantage offered by this material is that it is stain- and smudge-proof.

Manufacturers are also offering a rainbow of colors for various sink styles. At KBIS 2020, Elkay previewed the Mint Crème color shown on the sink here. It’s now available for purchase.

While an apron-front sink can bring color front and center, undermount sinks offer a different experience. A colorful undermount sink is an unexpected surprise that isn’t visible until you’re standing over it.
