Are you following latest ‘sinkie’ kitchen trend on Instagram? It’s not what you might think

#shelfies were the big thing for 2019, this year is set to be all about the kitchen 'sinkie'
  • We earn a commission for products purchased through some links in this article.

  • It’s a movement sweeping social media. The #sinkie is quite literally a safe space for Instagrammers to share pictures of their kitchen sinks – styled with flowers.

    And while following the ‘sinkie’ trend is niche, quite frankly at the moment we’ll happily gaze at flowers in beautiful kitchens for hours – anything for a bit of escapism.

    The trend seems to be aimed primarily for weekend enjoyment – with #saturdaysinkies trending.

    Just today there are over 2000 posts using the hashtag sinkie, with over 300 adding the Saturday element to the post.

    We tell you it was niche, but nice all the same…

    Latest #sinkie posts

    It’s all about floral Friday for this homeowner. With only a few decorative trinkets on the shelf this spotless kitchen is beautifully accentuated by these fresh blooms in the sink.

    Just four freshly cut hydrangea heads are more than enough to captivate in this shot.

    Saturday sinkie 💕💐 Lemme be honest with you, I’m going to try and get these beautiful blooms in every photo I can 😆 we’ve just had new timber bay windows fitted in our bedroom and kitchen – warmth at last! 🔥 the work took a bit longer than expected but all done now, but I’ll be spending most of today faffing and cleaning and putting the furniture back where it’s meant to be. Hope your Saturdays are shaping up to be more exciting than mine?! . . . @myhousethismonth begins with C… my lovely new Calathea from @wildplantshop. It has such striking pink stripes on its leaves 😍💖 . . #sinkie #saturdaysinkie #flowers #buylocal #supportlocal #guisborough #ruffledflowers #kitchen #kitcheninspo #belfastsink #greykitchen #interiors #interiorinspo #home #instahome #realhomes #edwardianhouse #periodhome #myperiodhomestyle #myperiodhome #periodhomesofinsta #ihavethisthingwithflowers #florist #weddingflorist #northeast #smallbusinesssaturday #houseplants #houseplantclub #myhousethismonth

    A bouquet that stunning deserves a quick ‘sinkie’ before gracing the coffee table.

    Everything but the kitchen sink. . It suddenly occurred to me today whilst casually draping my already cut and fully bloomed peonies over the kitchen sink for no apparent reason what so ever, that I have never done a #sinkie AND (you’re not going to believe this) I’ve never had a pic of peonies on my grid. . I know, I know, I’m such a peony! . . . . #ihavethisthingwithhome #modernrustic #ekbbhome #realhomes #myinteriorvibe #myinteriormydecor #myhomestyle #rustickitchen #woodencladding #interiorsblog #myhometrend #myhomedetails #peonies #myhousethismonth #outsideinside #londonhomes #myhomeforhp #stopandstaredecor #atmine #kitcheninspo #renovation #sidereturnextension #interiorarchitecture #blooms #hanginggrid #interiordesign #interiortractor #kitchensofinsta #appartmentthetapy

    Ah, who doesn’t love a pretty peony? These pink stems are the perfect accent against the striking navy units.

    These flowers are in good company, surrounded by lush potted plants.

    Sunflowers entirely take over this traditional ceramic sink.

    The sunny yellow blooms are the star of this sink shot. Although the kitchen does also boast a vase filled with elegant white lilies and a few trailing plants dressing the shelves.

    Last week I was asked to do a sorry you're leaving bouquet and given free rein on colour and flower choice. I knew I wanted to use yellow just because it's such a happy colour. One of the things that lifted me last week when we were having such bad luck with our weather, were all of your yellow blooms you were sharing – they brought such a ray of sunshine and some very much needed calmness. Fingers crossed for sunshine and blue skies in this new week🤞☀️💙 . . . #myhousethismonth #featuremyflorallove #mellowyellow #cornerofmyhome #kitchensofinstagram #prettylittleinteriors #lovetohome #bloomsoftheday #prettyblooms #caughtflowerhanded #fortheloveofflowers #sinkie #flowers #instagood #beautiful #flower #springbulbs #bulbs #springflowers #tulips #flowerstagram #flowerporn #springflower #flowerbulbs #stopandsmell #blooms #flowerbeauty

    Tulips are a simple supermarket favourite – meaning you don’t have to spend a lot to have fresh flowers in your home.
