5 country style sinks to get you in a lather…

So what's your sink style; steel or stone? Statement or subtle? Country Homes & Interiors help you decide...

Even if your dishwasher bears the brunt of the daily washing-up, every kitchen needs at least one sink. So what’s your chosen style; steel or stone? Statement or subtle? With so many beautiful designs to choose from nowadays, here are some ideas to help you decide…

Fresh fireclay
The crisp white finish of this Perrin & Rowe Double Shaker 800 from Charlie Kingham is a classic staple in any country kitchen. At £547 it offers maximum capacity, can be installed on top of a low cabinet, and the apron front is a beautiful design feature.

Hidden support
Under-mounted sinks keep a low profile, which is great if you’re opting for show-stealing worktops. At £608.40 this stainless steel Blanco Claron 700-U by Cue & Co. looks marvellous alongside a polished plaster counter top, creating an industrial vibe.

Rock solid
It is hard to beat this double-bowl freestanding unit for sheer impact and beauty. The Roche Marron limestone double sink by Artisans of Devizes is carved by skilled craftsmen, and at £2,500, make sure your floors can take the weight before ordering.

Double delight
Add an extra half-bowl sink to provide essential backup when your main sink is in action. Do make sure you choose a tap with a wide radius pivot spout that will easily cross the divide. Made from high quality ceramics, these Waterford sinks come with a lifetime guarantee. They are 100cm and 50cm by Carron Phoenix and they’re priced at £239 and £219 respectively; a steal in our eyes.

Stand proud
Create a feature with a modern raised-profile inset sink like this chic white granite model by John Lewis of Hungerford. Grab yourself one for £359 and colour-match with your worktops for a subtle modular look.
