The selection of metallic finishes available on MR Direct faucets has just been expanded..

The selection of metallic finishes available on MR Direct faucets has just been expanded. With the recent introduction of our new antique bronze coloring, consumers will have the opportunity to go to the dark side when visualizing their bathroom decor.

In stark contrast to the ever-popular bright chrome coating, antique bronze flaunts a profound, dark chocolate finish which nearly approaches black. Thin, copper-colored highlights on select edges create a glamourous appearance suggestive of classic eras long since gone.

For a distinctive difference in your bath, consider this new dark alternative, but remember we continue to offer our beautiful, brushed nickel, chrome and oil-rubbed bronze finishes as well.

If a wide, sweeping oval design, in glistening porcelain is the sink style you are looking for, you owe it to yourself to check out the new V2602 model from MR Direct. As a replacement for the existing V260 model, the V2602 features more useable interior sink space as the contour is cut at a steeper angle while maintaining its expansive appearance.

As with all our porcelain designs, this stunning new model is true vitreous china. An overflow hole and faucet hole are provided along the back for safe filling and easy fixture installation. Both brilliant white and soft bisque colorings are available. Discover all the details by visiting www.MRDirectint.com.

An estimated 26,000 people flooded downtown Toledo, Ohio streets on Sunday, September 27, 2015 for the 22nd annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. A large team of MR Direct employees, along with many of their family and friends, came out on what was a beautiful sunny morning to show their support of this worthy cause.

Breast cancer is still an aggressive disease and it is our greatest hope that continued research will discover the means to stop it. For all those we know personally, and all those we know of through extended relationships who are afflicted by this cancer, we pledge to continue our physical and financial efforts toward finding a cure for as long as it takes. We encourage you to visit the Susan G. Komen website to join a race in your community or to make a donation. www.raceforthecure.org.

MR Direct is excited to announce..

MR Direct is excited to announce the debut of its new series of topmount stainless steel sinks, some of which can be undermounted as well. Manufactured in North America, the new collection is comprised of seven models. When compared to our previous line of topmounts, which these are to replace, you'll find a superior quality, more thickness options, and a much better price. All models have a beautiful brushed satin finish and sound-dampening pads on the exterior reduce noise. The thickness varies per model in 18, 20, or 24-gauge steel.

This economy line of stainless steel topmounts is big on form and function, but a very small drain on the pocketbook. Watch for more information about these and all our sinks at www.MRDirectint.com.

Has that one-time sparkling MR Direct sink lost some of its luster..

Has that one-time sparkling MR Direct sink lost some of its luster? Making your sink shine is a crucial step in creating a refined look in your kitchen and sometimes a little touch up can showcase your sink a little more. With just these few steps you can change the look and lower the cost of any kitchen update or re-model.

First, drying your sink after rinsing will prevent water spots. To remove these spots, use a mild-abrasive cleaner and rinse thoroughly. To restore that sparkle, try olive oil and a soft cloth to help remove streaks and add shine. Undiluted white vinegar will also help remove any fingerprints or hard water deposits in stainless sinks. No matter how dull that older sink has become, there is a simple solution to giving it a shining new life.

For years, TruGranite sinks have been growing in demand..

For years, TruGranite sinks have been growing in demand by homeowners and contractors alike. They are a premium choice sink for those who want the natural look and feel of matte stone in their kitchen at a reasonable price. Sinks formed of other materials have a hard time measuring up to TruGranite's superiority in several categories.

As a granite composite (80% Quartzite/20% Acrylic), TruGranite offers the most durable surface available for a kitchen sink. It is extremely heat-resistant, up to 550 degrees, which means hot pots or pans can be set inside without fear of damage. It is nearly impossible to scratch or stain; acidic foods and strong detergents will not mar its surface. And because it is such a dense, solid material, it makes for a very quiet sink.

Perhaps the most impressive feature of a TruGranite sink is that it features a non-porous finish, which leaves no place for bacteria or microbes to thrive.

The TruGranite collection of MR Direct sinks has seen numerous additions..

The TruGranite collection of MR Direct sinks has seen numerous additions and embellishments since its introduction in 2008. The broadening of this line has fueled its growth in popularity, and inversely its popularity has spawned new models. Recently, we introduced the 824, designed in the trendy D-shape and offered in all six TruGranite colors.

D-shape sinks are the latest choice of those who want to be on that proverbial cutting-edge of kitchen design. The key attraction is the faucet placement, which is usually at the back-left or right corners of the sink, instead of the traditional back-center location. This allows the 824 sink to be deeper front-to-back, turning the traditional faucet area into additional sink space.

In mere seconds, with only a simple push, a TruGranite flange can be installed to match your TruGranite sink. Here’s how..

In mere seconds, with only a simple push, a TruGranite flange can be installed to match your TruGranite sink. Here's how to do it:

Most garbage disposal units include a metal flange, which connects through the drain opening of a TruGranite sink. The disposal attaches to this metal flange and as such to the sink. The disposal unit does not attach to the additional TruGranite flange.

Once the installation of the garbage disposal is completed, the MR Direct TruGranite flange can be inserted, from the top, directly inside of the metal flange. This is a snug fit, so a firm push is needed to secure the TruGranite flange inside the metal one. That's it!

The TruGranite flange has its benefits. First, it is cosmetic. Because our flanges are available in matching TruGranite colors for most models, these sinks can have an aesthetically pleasing, uniform appearance.

Second, it is practical. The shallow basket that comes with the flange can catch debris you don't want going into the disposal, and with a simple push it becomes a stopper so the sink can be filled with water.

If you need any further clarification regarding TruGranite sink characteristics or installation, please contact our friendly and knowledgeable customer service department. You can also check out our newest, very cool, warm color, slate, and details of all the MR Direct TruGranite sinks, by visiting www.MRDirectint.com.
