help with sink color choices

Posted by calumin (My Page) on

Hi -- I was hoping someone could help me with a sink choice -- particular with color selection. I am deciding between the following:

1) Stainless steel Franke sink RGX120

2) Silgranit Blanco sink Metallic Grey

Our countertops will be Pental Quartz coastal grey, and our cabinets will be white Shaker style. Here are a couple links to the countertop color:

Pental Quartz Coastal Grey (the color in person looks a bit lighter than it does on the computer in this link)

Our questions are:
1) If we got Silgranit, what color do you think would best match our counters (and cabinets)? We were originally thinking white to match the cabinets but now we are thinking that might stand out too much

2) From a purely color / aesthetic perspective, do you think stainless steel would look better than one of the Silgranit colors?

I think the metallic grey silgranit would look great with your counters!

Thanks! One thing I forgot to add is, our appliances will be stainless steel.

Have you made a choice yet? I'm considering the Franke RGX120 also. The Franke sinks appear to be made well.

Also, I'm interested in your configuration. I'm putting the sink in a 36" cabinet and I'm curious if there's enough room for a single hole faucet as well as a soap dispenser? Do you know how much room there is on either side of the sink for a built-in soap dispenser in that size cabinet?
