Mudroom sink suggestions: Composite?

bellacucinaJanuary 21, 2011

Would love sink suggestions for a 36" base cabinet in the mudroom, where we are going to reuse granite from our old island (verde butterfly -- it's dark greenish w/some gold and berry flecks) . Would like the sink to be about 28-30 inches wide and around 10" deep. I'm thinking undermount. It will replace a standard laundry tub.

The fabricator suggested that we go with a composite sink rather than SS due to scratching of the SS. The mudroom sink will be used for general utility and buckets for cleaning off our dog's (Bella's) paws. Any brands I should look at?

Basically I would love something that will hold up to muck and still look good when we clean it.

Thank you!!!

Thank you sshrivastava. I was thinking silgranit...not sure what other composites are out there, but I know silgranit is popular.

Would sand,dirt and other gritty materials scratch silgranit the way it could with SS?

If price is no object silgranit is nice. If price is a concern, but scratches allowed, Ticor offers single deep bowl retangular sinks for under $150 -- I found mine on However, it does scratch, but cleans up well. In the corner in the LR I'm ok with it.

Your LR sounds like it will be great! Enjoy!
