The sink, rediscovered
Those who prize gems will be happy in the kitchen. And we’re not talking about a 2010 Mouton-Rothschild or a fillet steak of hand-massaged Kobe beef, but rather the real centrepiece of any kitchen: the sink.
Where our grandmothers once did the washing up, we can now produce Instagram-worthy sushi, mix cocktails à la Charles Schumann or chop julienne carrots to perfection. This is where we prepare aperitifs to go with finger food while a beef bourguignon roasts away in the oven.
With the right fittings, the sink can be transformed into the main draw of your kitchen and any kitchen gathering. Whether you're one for analogue or digital, you're bound to generate lots of likes. After all, where do people like to hang out once they’ve topped up their gin and tonic? That’s right. The kitchen.
So if you’re planning this haven of bliss from scratch, go into details! Ultimately, you want to remain happy with your decision for as long as possible. There are lots of opportunities to turn an everyday task into a mini event or a big happening.
