Kitchen Sink Ideas

It was easy for me to want to talk about sinks after looking for all the faucets in the last post. And then I cam across this sink and I knew it would be a good post,

{circular water station by KWC}

This kitchen sink or “circular water station” includes colander, cutting board and more. Just what you’d need while cutting, slicing, rinsing and dicing. After seeing this sink it had me wondering what other kind of unique sinks are out there? So I began my search. I’m sure the sinks I have found are not the only unique styles out there, and they may not even be ones you like – these are just the ones that spoke to me. Sink designs are nearly endless!

{Entertainment Sinks}

These sinks are good for the parties you like to host in your homes. You can fill these sinks with a bunch of ice and keep your desserts, salads, sides and drinks cold. Pretty neat huh?

{Colored Sinks}

Did you know there were bright colored sinks to choose from? This would look so cool in a kitchen, adding just a tad pop of color. The house I grew up in as a kid had 3 bathrooms with puke green, red and blue sinks. These colors look a whole lot nicer than the puke green I remember in my house.

{Undermount Sink with Cutting board – by Kohler}

This kitchen sink includes the faucet on the side and a custom fit cutting board to work directly over the sink. It’s scratch burn and stain resistant. Choose single or double bowl.

{Apron Kitchen Sink}

Last but not least: Apron Kitchen sinks. Apron sinks got their name because they have an apron front or in other words the front side of the sink is exposed rather than hidden behind false drawers or cabinets. This style is quite popular today.

Bathroom Faucet Ideas

Who thought there could be such a huge variety of faucets out there. Before this post when I thought faucet I thought of the one in my bathroom that is so outdated and uncool. And who really knows how hold it is, but I am pretty sure they don’t make this style anymore.

[Nice backsplash right? it blends right into the counter and sink!]

The reason that I may think it’s uncool could be the fact that it’s broken, but I am still deciding. It could also be when I am trying to pull on the plastic (that isn’t really attached by the way, it just helps give us a little bit of grip to pry it open to let the water out and it’s got some force to it) and when all you want to do is wash your hands or wet your toothbrush or wash your face, all it want’s to do is tear your flesh off.

It could be time to get a new one! Like some of these I found:

I am really into the modern look. Clean, straight lines.

This one above could work well for a kitchen too I suppose. For the bathroom it might help with rinsing down the mouthwash that gets stuck to the sides of the sink or easy rinsing when cleaning.

It’s just so pretty. I’m not sure how helpful the digital temperature gauge would be to me, I find it easier to feel the water to tell if it scorching hot or just right.

The designer name is Graff and I read Giraffe. So now all I can think about is how much this faucet above reminds me of a giraffe. I really think this one is incredible, even if it does remind me of a long necked animal.

How much more simple can you get? And all you have to do to turn the water on is do what?! It apparently has touch sensors that allow you to control the temperature and the water pressure quick and easily. The post that this faucet is linked to says when describing this stylish piece, “This faucet makes the old ones look like a piece of junk…”

….I think that comment may be sorta true.
