Porcelain Sinks

Our porcelain sinks are made from a triple glazed and fired mixture of clay and other minerals, otherwise known as Vitreous China. Using this technique makes our porcelain sinks more durable, stain resistant and easier to clean than sinks made from fine china. A finer grade of paint is also used to ensure that our white, bisque, and black porcelain sinks are more uniform and glossy in appearance than traditional ceramic sinks.

Our porcelain sink selection offers a variety of options including undermount, topmount, and vessel sinks. Undermount sinks sit below the countertop without exposing the rim and are popular due to the glamorous appeal and functionality they offer. Topmount sinks are traditionally the most commonly used in kitchens. A topmount sink sits within a specifically cut hole in the countertop suspended by the exposed rim. Vessel sinks are free-standing, meaning that the sink sits directly on the surface of the countertop. They are popular choices because of their ability to transform your bathroom decor from ordinary to extraordinary.

Features & Benefits
Overflow

Some of our porcelain sinks are available with an overflow hole and optional, overflow pop-up or grid drain. The purpose of an overflow hole and overflow drain is to prevent water from overflowing if a sink is left unattended while filling up. The overflow opening sits near the top of the sink bowl, usually opposite of the faucet so that the hole remains unseen unless it is being looked for.

Color Options

Our porcelain sinks are widely available in white and bisque, with a few models having the option for black. While bisque has many colors associated with its name, our bisque has a yellow tint and looks more like an eggshell color and our black porcelain has a very reflective gloss finish.
