When designing your new kitchen, you are welcome to pay attention not only to the functionality but also to the appearance. The choice of sink colour plays an important role in this respect. Make a statement with a coloured sink, perfectly matched to the worktop and all other elements in your kitchen. We will tell you here how to create the perfect atmosphere with the right colour combination.

Coloured sinks: the perfection of the overall impression

In interior design, colour is considered a decisive factor in creating a pleasant atmosphere. Of course, this also applies to your kitchen. When choosing colour tones, you should first consider your entire home. Colour expert Axel Venn advises you to draw up a colour master plan. To do this, select four to five colour shades that will then run through your entire home. A simple white alone can quickly become boring. That's why you should go for a combination with colourful accents. Avoid too bright colours and let yourself be inspired by the colours of nature, advises interior designer Alice Buckley. In addition to the choice of colour, the material also plays a role in your colour concept, as its overall effect also depends on the quality of light and surface structure.

It has a harmonious effect if the colour of the sink matches the colours in your kitchen.

Contrast or harmony:

Tips for choosing the colour of worktop and sink

You are still not quite sure which colour combination appeals to you the most? Do you prefer monochrome looks or would you like to set an exciting accent with a coloured sink as a contrast to the worktop? With the coordinated colours of our BLANCO product families, we will help you make the right choice. You can choose the material, surface and colour of the sink to match the colour and texture of your worktop - including some beautiful brown tones such as Tartufo or Cafe. According to Prof. Dr Axel Buether, colour and trend researcher at the German Colour Centre in Wuppertal, brown is the most delicious colour - and not only when it comes to exotic luxury foods such as chocolate, coffee or spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. "Aromatic brown tones are downright addictive. You can create a feel-good atmosphere in any room that is stimulating, invigorating and natural. Special colours like concrete meet the pulse of the times, are a fascinating eye-catcher and especially suitable for Scandi Chic or Industrial Style. The combination of stainless steel and coloured accents is also possible. Sinks such as BLANCO ARTAGO or BLANCO SUBLINE in the SteelFrame version with their cool frame of brushed stainless steel are an eye-catcher in your kitchen.

White does not have to be boring, with Steelframe the sink becomes an eye-catcher!

Silgranit® or ceramic:

The right material for your coloured sink
