Concrete Trough Sink Kitchen

Erin Martin Design kitchen with raw steel range hood and concrete trough sinkMaterials and design were kept simple, so large statements don’t overwhelm.

A Northern California kitchen boasts a raw metal custom range hood worthy of respect -  but it’s not what drew me.  It was the island’s over-sized concrete trough sink featuring a pair of faucets from Ann Sacks.  This outside-the-box Italian style home is located on a vineyard, so I can see the custom sink working in overdrive during large gatherings.  A comfortable kitchen dining space was created by pairing a small upholstered sofa with a zinc top table.  Two stools continue the industrial theme and provide portable extra seating but, let’s be honest, they are uncomfortable.  The kitchen takes a contemporary direction with cabinetry light in color and design – smooth surfaces lacking embellishments.  Combining elements, such as the reclaimed flooring and a pair of antique French corbels with fruit and vegetable carvings with dishdrawers and an integrated coffee system, mix the old with the new.

    Oh, I could really love this (deeper from back to front) as the cleanup/prep sink. I’m not into troughs and their limitations, but love the overall size/width and material of this one. Now I could definitely go for something like this over the sink that turns itself on to the right temp. I’m in awe.

    Oh. My. God.
    Wait.
    How do I respond to this?
    With lust?
    Envy?
    Awe?
    Baffle?
    I have been outdone in the sink department. I do not have another remodel in my future. I have been dethroned! I love that hood. And that table. And the wood. And the copper.
    This kitchen is a beautiful sight!

    Let’s not get carried away. They have 3 faucets. You have 3 faucets. We should take some good pix of your sink and put it out for a vote! LOL. Jane

    You’re too funny, Sabjimata. You shouldn’t be suffering from sink envy!
