What’s Trending in Sink and Faucet Design

Apologies to the kitchen sink. This all-important fixture in what is often a favorite room in the house has been done dirty—literally. We toss in the food scraps and pile up the dishes until it’s a mess we’d rather walk away from. It’s time for a fresh start. With a bold, efficent new basin and a beautiful faucet, the sink can shine once again as the focal point of the kitchen.

Workstation Sinks

Function and style converge with multi-purpose workstation sinks, designed to simplify prep work for putting together a meal and free up valuable counter space. Tuck dirty dishes on the rack below (protecting the sink from scuffs) while chopping veggies on the cutting board and storing freshly washed ingredients in the basket, which allows water to filter through.

Black & Bold

Matte black is trending in the kitchen, and can complement modern or traditional styles depending on the piece. Black can add character to a wood and white kitchen, or stand out against bold cabinets.

Natural Stone

These durable sinks come in a variety of styles and colors. Use the same material for countertops to acheive a uniform look and enjoy having only one type of surface to clean. 

Touchless Options

A motion-activated faucet can come in handy when hands are full or dirty. Many brands now integrate with home voice assistants, and some even have commands that follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention handwashing guidelines.

Two-Tone Faucets

Kallista’s Juxtapose

Mixing faucet finishes can add subtle character to the kichen sink. This slim, minimalist faucet mixes matte black and brushed moderne brass accents for a fixture with function and style.

Copper Finishes

Warm, yellow metals are trending, so expect to see more bronze, brass and copper used for fixture finishes, as well as rose gold or champagne bronze.
