Although a granite sink is not typically found with granite countertops, it is one of many options for a kitchen or bathroom sink when you install granite counters.  A real granite kitchen sink or granite composite sink can be heavy and bulky - see What is Granite and Marble to learn more.

A granite bathroom sink, many times, is a vessel bowl that sits on top of the stone countertop.  Sinks in the kitchen usually fall into three categories . . . undermount sink, drop-in sink, and apron or farm sink.


Granite Composite Sinks

The hottest new sinks for granite are composite sinks such as Swanstone and Blanco Anthracite.  These sinks blend in well with granite countertops and, just like quartz countertops, they have the added benefits of chip, heat, and stain resistance. Swanstone sinks come in three colors - Nero (black), Espresso, and Champagne.
Granite Sink Reviews
An undermount sink can be stainless steel, enameled cast iron, or steel, or granite composite.  The granite composite bowls, such as Pegasus brand, are molded from granite and resin but are not considered true granite sinks.

Stainless steel undermount sinks are the most common bowl used with granite countertops.  They function well and are reasonably priced.  See Granite Faucets for faucet selections made for granite countertops.
Drop in Sink
Apron or Farm Sink

Apron sinks can be made of stainless steel, enameled steel, soapstone, fired clay, and granite.  As a granite sink the apron style is not typical and matching the stone in the countertops can be difficult.



Factory Direct Sinks

Here are some excellent sources for very good quality sinks at the best price.  My personal favorite is the Amerisink granite sink.  This sink is reasonably priced and has withstood years of use in my own kitchen.  It still looks great too.

Discount granite sinks has sinks for every price level, but all high quality.

Granite Kitchen Sink Care

CAUTION: DO NOT USE ABRASIVE CLEANERS SUCH AS COMET, AJAX, SOFT SCRUB, SOS BRILLO OR
OTHER SIMILAR METAL SCOURING PADS. YOU SHOULD NOT USE BLEACH OR ALKALI CLEANERS SUCH
AS AMMONIA!

Wash your sink using warm water and a soft cloth, sponge or Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. You can use
non-abrasive liquid cleaners and detergents as often as you use the sink. Hard water, calcium and
lime deposits can be removed with white vinegar on a paper towel rinsing after 20 minutes.

To remove discoloration, restore the luster, provide a seal between the sink and outside elements, or to
help make cleaning easier and allow you to go longer between cleanings, try Weimanís Granite Polish.
To find a supplier near you, go to www.weiman.com.

Cleaning stainless steel sinks requires similar but different care.

Drop-in sinks or self-rimming sinks as they're also known are used with granite countertops as well.  Drop-in stainless steel sinks are typically not chosen for granite sinks.  But enameled iron or steel sinks are.  They are usually white, almond, or black and have a glossy finish.  They are also quite heavy.


Granite sinks, kitchen placement, have the greatest variety.  Apron sinks were common in farm houses years ago and offer a traditional, old-fashioned look in your kitchen.




Bathroom Sinks
In the bathroom, both undermount and drop-in sinks are common.  They are generally made of ceramic or china material.  For a contemporary look, I have seen undermount stainless steel bathroom vanity sinks.

Undermount sinks sit below the surface of the granite countertops and is attached to the underside of the granite with silicone and mechanical attachments (clips).

This type of sink shows off your granite since the hole in the granite has polished sides that are visible.

Vessel bowls are currently a popular style.  Made out of a variety of materials, these bowls can sit on top of the countertop or sit down in the countertop.  A vessel style granite sink bowl can be polished or rough on the outside.  They are typically made from solid blocks of granite.  You can also find these sinks made of onyx.
