Considering Blanco Precis 1 3/4 sink with drainboard

Posted by mltoms (My Page) on

I love sinks with drainboards, DH hates stainless steel, and the huge enamel sinks with double drainboards aren't either of our styles.

It looks like the Blanco Precis (Silgranit II) would work.

1) Any thoughts on the sink? Our cabinet guy doesn't foresee a problem putting it in a 48" cabinet with some of the drainboard crossing over to the next cab.

2) Any recommendations for the faucet? DH doesn't love the pro-look faucets.

I have the smaller Blanco Precis Cascade with a low split divide. It's 28' wide x 18'-no drain board.

I knew I was going to get Silgranit II after reading about it on GW as SS alternative. It's just a great sink, great color (MG), even DH raves about it. It's under-mounted using the Sink Setter which the fabricator knew all about: good product to think about.

I wanted a Blanco faucet, thinking their designers work specifically with their sinks. I have the Blanco Culina and love it.

Now if I can just figure out the gray glass back splash shown with the sink you're considering I'd be good to go!

I'm considering this sink as well. I like how the cutting board can go across the drainboard, if I need the entire sink available. And you can use the colander and cutting board at the same time because they are at different levels. This must be a new design, as I can't find much on it. Amazon has two 5 star reviews.
I don't see how install would be a problem. Basically the drainboard is taking the place of the countertop.
Currently I like the Kohler Karbon faucet for its functionality. Looks-wise, not so much, but I can live with it for good function. It's better than a pullout faucet because you can let go and it will stay in any place, where a pullout would just flop down or retract back to the base.
