Belfast-style sink:

Nostalgic charm for your kitchen

Great! Lean comfortably against the slightly protruding sink and scrub a deep-sided pot. Did it hold potato or cheesy leek soup for the whole family? How easy it is for residues to stick to the bottom of the pot. Starch and cheese – a nightmare when it comes to washing up. Baking trays can often retain residues that are hard to shift. In her country kitchen, Granny would whisk the pot and baking tray of to her big, deep farmhouse-style Belfast sink. In those days it was practically a trough for washing dishes. Both would be clean again in no time, and Granny would be content.

A sink like in Grandma’s day

A Belfast-style sink offers plenty of room. In times gone by, babies would even have been washed in such sinks. Today, they are ideal for especially cumbersome dishes. Unlike other kitchen sinks, this type of sink protrudes a little from the kitchen cabinets. There’s no concealment here. It is solidly striking, and an eye-catching feature.

Rural lifestyle with a modern touch

A farmhouse-style sink brings country-style charm to your kitchen. If you decide upon a ceramic Belfast sink, this is a glossy crystal white. The elegant design and clean lines introduce a rural lifestyle feel to your home. It also makes a sophisticated complement to a shabby chic look. Alternatively, it may provide a contrast to modern furnishings. In both cases, it offers a hint of nostalgia.

Urban ambiance in Stainless steel

The stainless steel version features a perfectly honed, striking design. The BLANCO SteelArt farmhouse-style sink combines tradition and modernity, while still offering plenty of space. Striking, superior, stylish. Classic, straight-lined design is paired with traditions handed down over time. The satin polish look of the surfaces are combined with a satin matte stainless steel front, creating a refined appearance. The apron front of the Belfast sink complements the covers of possible electrical appliances.

Stainless steel farmhouse-style sink meets history

Beautifully practical: when design meets history

A new take on an established favourite. That’s the effect of a BLANCO farmhouse-style sink in your kitchen. The solid shape of the somewhat different kitchen sink draws upon traditional, rustic flair, while also departing from it. The Belfast sink looks sophisticated in both the white ceramic and stainless steel versions. Both stand out within the kitchen.

At the same time, they are also extremely functional. You can have your sink positioned or installed to the height that works for you. Adjusted to your height, rinsing dishes, washing vegetables and chopping food will be a pleasure and easy on your back. The size and depth of the bowl means that it is easy to cut up fruit or vegetables in the sink itself, using special cutting boards that can be attached in the bowl or laid on top.

Both materials – ceramic and high-quality stainless steel – are easy to clean and maintain. Simply wiping it down regularly after washing up is enough.

How is the Belfast-style sink installed in your worktop?

Installing a Belfast sink isn’t as easy as simply placing it on the base cabinet, connecting it up and fixing it in position. Your ceramic sink or stainless steel sink needs to sit firmly and securely at the right height. The key thing is to make careful measurements and mount it precisely. Professional fitters can help you with this. After all, it’s not simply a case of making the apron front protrude a little. The stainless steel version of the farmhouse-style sink can be integrated into the worktop using the conventional way, as well as using an flushmount or even undermount method.
