Here are my favorite sinks that represent the perfect blend of durability and style:

Concrete

Concrete

Concrete doesn’t evoke images of sleek and contemporary style, but I assure you, modern concrete sinks are growing popular for their elegant appearance and desirable strength. Rust-proof, dent-proof, stain-proof, and heat resistant, these sinks are great investments to last a long time. The NSL4819 is one of my favorite concrete bathroom sinks because of its contemporary style and practical construction.

Quartz Granite

Quartz Granite

Quartz granite sinks are non-porous, easy to clean, and heat resistant, making them the perfect for the kitchen! They also have a wonderfully smooth surface and sophisticated appearance that adds a touch of elegance into the room. The 848 Slate sink is my favorite! Its deep single basin is great for piling in dirty dishes, saving you much needed counter space. I also love its subtle glossy sheen (and I love it more knowing the color will never fade!).
