Choosing a Sink for Solid Laminate Worktops
Whether our Zenith range or our exclusive premium range, Solid laminate worktops are attractive, contemporary kitchen surfaces. Choosing a sink for solid laminate worktops can be quite tricky because there are many different options available, including ceramic, stainless steel and composite granite. In this guide, we offer some advice on selecting the right one for your kitchen.
The classic look of ceramic sinks appeal to many people and combining this style with contemporary solid laminate worktops creates an attractive design. There are many ceramic options to choose from and, unlike traditional laminate surfaces, undermount sinks can be fitted in a solid laminate worktop.
Ceramic overmount sinks – like this Reginox ceramic sink – are available in many styles including single bowl and 1.5 bowl versions. Both of these choices come in either black or white depending on your preference.
This is a great undermount sink for solid laminate worktops – the half bowl makes it a practical choice for a modern kitchen. With a traditional style and light colour, this ceramic sink will beautifully complement darker coloured surfaces like our black granite solid laminate worktop.
Belfast or Butler
Belfast and butler sinks are associated with traditional kitchens, but they work perfectly well with the contemporary design of solid laminate worktops. The waterproof nature of a solid laminate surface means these sinks can be installed without the worry of moisture ingress.
Stainless Steel Sink
Stainless steel sinks work particularly well with solid laminate worktops as they complement the sleek appearance of the work surfaces. Due to the construction and waterproof design, both overmount and undermount sinks can be installed in this material.
Stainless Steel Overmount
Our WEX Telesto 1.5 bowl overmount stainless steel sink with drainer has a classic kitchen sink design that works well in any kitchen. Installing it in a solid laminate worktop will give your kitchen a sleek look. The reflective metal will complement a work surface with a matt finish, like our concrete solid laminate worktop.
Stainless Steel Undermount
Undermount stainless steel sinks – like our WEX Zero 1.5 bowl stainless steel sink – offer a contemporary option. The sink is mounted under the worktop to give a seamless finish whilst the geometrical design stands out and catches the eye. On a practical note, this sink is spacious and suitable for busy kitchens.
Composite Granite Sinks
For a low-cost alternative to solid stone, try composite sinks. They perfectly complement solid laminate worktops, especially those that have the appearance of natural materials such as copper – like our Rouille Zenith worktops. These quartz sinks are available in a selection of natural colours as well as single bowl and 1.5 bowl options.
