Wood Wise Design & Remodeling
25 years - over 500 projects
The most durable sink on the market today is granite composite. Thanks to an extremely high density of rock particles at the sink's surface, these sinks offer superior scratch, chip and heat resistance. They come in single or double bowls and the popular undermount styles. The colors range from white,creams,and browns to black and resist staining. Several companies offer granite composite sinks such as Blanco, Moen, Elkay, and others. Here are two Blanco sinks that were used in recent Wood Wise kitchen remodels:
Blanco Silgranite sink"mocha" color
Blanco Silgranite sink"biscotti" color
