Silgranit vs. SS sink
I like stainless steel sinks. I don't mean I'm madly in love and think they're gorgeous, just that I grew up with one, the things that bother people who don't like them don't bother me and I've been assuming that's the way I'd go.
Reading here and seeing all the love for silgranit, I had to look at the website. Those are nice, too. I'm not jumping up and down with glee, but they're nice. Maybe they're more exciting in person?
Anyway, I kept seeing them referred to as a pricey option and so I was assuming, since the budget isn't unlimited, that I'd go with the stainless figuring I like it fine and it would be less expensive.
But it doesn't seem to be. In fact, the silgranit I'd get is LESS expensive than a stainless sink I'm looking at.
I'm just wondering if I'm not looking in the right place for stainless or if the silgranit that I'd want just happens to be a relatively reasonable one.
There's a Franke sink that's coming in at about $521 from retailers I know and trust like build.com. http://www.build.com/franke-gdx11031-grande-32-3-4-undermount-single-basin-stainless-steel-kitchen-sink/p2067024?source=gba_2067024
And the silgranit sink I'd probably get is only $396, which is a decent sized difference. http://www.build.com/blanco-440149-precis-single-basin-kitchen-sink-32-x-19/p1077987?term=blanco%20440149
Am I just mistaken about the relative costs of silgranit and stainless?
