Accessorising Your Kitchen Sink: Faucets, Drains, and More

While often left as an afterthought in the grand scheme of kitchen interior design, the sink is perhaps one of the most important fixtures, helping you to prepare meals and clean. Considering sink functionality is crucial in carrying out kitchen tasks efficiently. However, it is just as important for your sink to complement your kitchen aesthetics, enhancing its overall appeal. Here, the right sink accessories come in useful to elevate both form and function. In this article, we delve into the world of sink accessories that will take your kitchen experience to the next level.


Faucet Finesse


Nice Faucet


A myriad of faucet styles is made available today, from traditional to modern, with options like single-handle, dual-handle, pull-down and wall-mounted faucets. Each offers its own set of advantages in terms of ease of use, aesthetics and preferences. For instance, dual-handle faucets have separate handles for hot and cold water, providing precise control over water temperature. Alternatively, wall-mounted faucets are installed directly into the wall above the sink, creating a clean and streamlined look.


When it comes to finishes, popular choices include stainless steel, chrome, brushed nickel and matte black, all of which boast versatility to match different kitchen designs. Additionally, features such as touchless activation, adjustable water flow and spray settings can further enhance functionality and convenience. 


Drainage Solutions 


Drain systems and garbage disposals play a crucial role in maintaining a hygienic and hassle-free kitchen environment. A well-designed drainage system ensures that water and food waste are effectively removed from the sink, preventing clogs and unpleasant odours. Garbage disposals improve this process by grinding food scraps into small particles that can easily flow through the plumbing system. 


For more efficient drainage, we recommend deep and sloped sink basins that encourage water flow, along with high-quality drain assemblies equipped with strainers and traps to catch debris. You can also invest in reliable garbage disposal units with powerful motors and multi-stage grinding mechanisms to reduce the risk of blockages and keep your sink area clean. 


Organisational Additions 


Sink Caddies


Compared to other rooms in the house, the kitchen is where we perform the most manual work including meal prepping, cooking and washing. Organisational accessories not only optimise space but also make completing kitchen tasks a breeze. Here are some sink additions every kitchen should incorporate.


  • Sink caddies: Provide designated storage for dish soap, sponges and scrub brushes, keeping them within easy reach while minimising clutter around the sink area. 
  • Drying racks: Offer a convenient spot to air-dry kitchenware, freeing up valuable counter space and promoting efficient dishwashing routines. 
  • Cutting boards: Create an instant prep area, enabling you to chop fruits, vegetables and other ingredients directly over the sink basin, which simplifies cleanup and maximises workspace.   


Aesthetic Enhancements 


Now that we have explored the functionalities, let’s discover how the right sink accessories can elevate aesthetics! As every sink is typically paired with a soap dispenser, start by considering the style of the soap dispenser. A beautifully crafted soap dispenser can add a touch of sophistication to your sink area and keep dish soap readily accessible. Next, think about your sink strainer. While a minute detail, sink strainers with intricate designs or luxurious finishes serve as the perfect finishing touches. Last but not least, sink grids placed at the bottom of the basin to protect against scratches or dents come in a variety of materials and styles, allowing you to select one that complements your kitchen decor.


If your kitchen is connected to a bathroom, remember to also match your bathroom accessories to your chosen aesthetics for a complete and cohesive look and feel.
