BLANCO Presents New IKON Farmhouse Sink

Posted on 18 February 2020 by cradmin

BLANCO, the German manufacturer of finely crafted sinks, is elevating kitchen ergonomics with its new IKON® 33-in. Apron 1-3/4 Bowl with Low Divide sink. Designed to make prepping, cooking and cleaning a more seamless and comfortable experience for all users, this apron front sink is crafted with the brand’s exclusive SILGRANIT® granite composite patented material available in nine trending colors.

The new IKON sink’s convenient low divide that sits just 5-1/2-in. from the sink bottom, makes it easier to handle large pots and baking sheets while still dividing the sink into cleaning and prepping bowls. Because apron front designs are installed further forward and eliminate the countertop, they minimize the need to lean over as much and help to reduce strain.

Available color options include Anthracite, Biscotti, Biscuit, Café Brown, Cinder, Metallic Gray, Truffle, White and Concrete Gray. Additional accessories available include: Small Grid, Large Grid, Floating Grid, Floating Cutting Board, 3-in-1 Basket Strainer, 3-in-1 Disposal Flange.

On the Surface, Colors Matter: 2019 Color Trends in the Kitchen

Posted on 26 March 2019 by cradmin

As kitchens cement their role as the home’s central gathering place, color is taking on an even more important role in design. Whether we are aware of it or not, color affects us on a deep subconscious level. Transcending beyond the name or number of a specific hue, color can tell a story beyond the visual senses. Homeowners and designers use color to personalize, create a focal point or to set the mood for their space. BLANCO recently surveyed top architects and designers to uncover current and future trends in kitchen color.

Gray elements in the kitchen have become more frequent and popular over the years. BLANCO demonstrates their latest color launch, Concrete Gray.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When it comes to choosing a color for your kitchen, neutrals tend to win the game. According to about 67 percent of those surveyed, gray and white kitchens are the dominating design projects this year. Not only do they see the gray and white trend in paint choice and cabinetry, but these smart neutrals populate the sink area, as well.

Of those surveyed, 64 percent found that the most popular sink specified in 2018 was stainless. However, 54 percent of those anticipate the sink trend is moving towards neutrals that are in the white and gray category. Homeowners are looking for a timeless and transitional kitchen design that also makes a personal statement.

The gray trend is very timely considering BLANCO’s brand new SILGRANIT® sink color, Concrete Gray. Clean, organic and extremely balanced, Concrete Gray is at home in both urban and natural settings. Its revolutionary warm red and cool blue undertones make it BLANCO’s most versatile color yet. Right on trend, Concrete Gray is the perfect fit with a wide array of countertop and cabinet designs.

Video: Sinkless Sink?

Posted on 29 March 2018 by cradmin

As has become a tradition here, we always seek out something strange and unique for our April video post, and this year is no different. This has to be one of the strangest “sink” videos we have come across. While it doesn’t seem to make a lot of sense and we aren’t even sure it would be approved as up to code, this is someone’s actual installation. It appears this may not be sanitary or easy to clean, as far as the “drain” is concerned, and it may cause more messes than it can be used to clean, but to each his or her own.

So without further ado – the sinkless sink. Enjoy!
