TORONTO, Jan. 19th, 2017 – Apron front sinks are nostalgic elements in the contemporary world. They bring the old times farmhouse feel into the current age of interior design. Today, apron front sinks are treated as the focal point of the kitchen making it an important element of the overall space. In 2017, Blanco is demonstrating their product design leadership in the apron front category offering brand new sinks in different materials from stainless steel, natural granite composite (SILGRANIT®) to fireclay / ceramic.
BLANCO PROFINATM is the latest collection made of fireclay, manufactured with hand-finishing techniques and high firing temperatures resulting in a smooth, glossy and beautiful surface. The design of the PROFINATM collection strives for a truly modern country experience with home chefs in mind. Its elongated galley style (36” width) with contemporary contours offers a unique design including an inside sink ledge for holding accessories. Home chefs will love the functionality of this sink making it a perfect companion for prepping and cooking. The sink will include a beech cutting board designed to sit and slide perfectly on the inside ledge of the sink. An optional reversible floating dish rack fits seamlessly underneath the cutting board when not in use. Product availability is scheduled for Spring 2017.
