3 Must-Have Qualities You Need in Your Kitchen Sink (iQuartz)

Editorial Jam

Bringing to you the latest and greatest products, tips and tricks and inspirations.

Editorial Jam

Your kitchen design – style, colour palette and storage solutions – might be what you think about most when dreaming up your new kitchen. But there’s one most often overlooked element: the sink. Easily the hardest working area, the sink is the clean-up zone for small or large tasks. We’ve identified three essential qualities to look for, which iQuartz’s innovative Hachi Flush Mount Sink surpasses without compromise.

 


Hardwearing And Stain-Resistant Material

When it comes to the kitchen sink, there are a few favourite materials like solid surface, stainless steel and composite granite. Style wise, it’s easy to feel that coloured sinks blend easily with your kitchen. However, most sink materials like concrete, enamel and solid are susceptible to stains and cracks over time. Many also love solid surface sinks because they can be merged seamlessly with the countertop for hygiene reasons. But a damaged solid surface sink would mean having to replace the entire countertop as well – and that’s an expensive project.

 

Your best bet for long-term use? A stainless steel sink, which is easy to clean and not prone to damage from impact, heat and cold, and can look good for many years. That is why it’s the go-to sink material for heavy usage in commercial spaces like restaurants, canteens and science labs.

 


No Hiding Places For Grime, Mould And Algae

Hygiene is a major concern for everyone. So, the next big question is: should you go for under or top mounting? These are the two commonly seen types today. A top-mount sink sits on top of the countertop and has its edges sealed off with silicone. An under-mount sink rests on the kitchen cabinet base before the counter is placed on top. What’s important to note is that, over time, both types harbour mould and algae. That’s because the crevices along the edges are exposed to water, dirt and bacteria while you handle raw meats and dirty dishes. And if you scrub the algae off the silicone seal, it’ll only harm the integrity of your kitchen cabinetry. Water that seeps under the counter can damage the kitchen base and even cause laminates to peel off.

 

The Hachi Flush Mount Sink from iQuartz is not only made of stainless steel, but it also comes with a revolutionary flush mount. What it means is that there’s zero room for dirt, algae and mould to accumulate. With flush mounting, the silicone seal is entirely covered and the sink is level with the kitchen counter. Water can be wiped into the sink much like an under-mount or solid surface sink without you having to worry about nasties trapped in the silicone seal or gaps. Hachi Sink is also the perfect accompaniment to quartz stone, the most sought-after countertop material today.

 

Perfect Fit For The Trendiest Material

 Sinks come in a selection of sizes, so it can get quite confusing. They used to come in depths of up to 15cm, but deeper sinks manufactured today aid cleaning better. So, look for sinks with depths of at least 18cm to minimise water splashes. Should you go for a single- or double-bowl sink? It’s a matter of personal preference as some find single-bowl sinks more convenient for cleaning large pots and pans. Others like how double-bowl sinks help speed up food prep and cleaning tasks. Be sure to allocate sufficient work area, though, if you opt for a double-bowl sink.


iQuartz’s Hachi Flush Mount Sink comes in two options: Solo 65 (650 X 420X 203mm) and Couple (830 X 420 X 239mm). With greater depths, the two sinks have been designed for ease of use and minimal mess.

 


 

Why Hachi Sink?

With its patent-pending Hachi Sink, iQuartz aims to address the problems that many homeowners encounter with their kitchen sink. Years of research and development have resulted in the flush-mounting concept. This central idea enhances hygiene and eliminates the issue of bacteria, algae and mould, which could hamper health in the long term.


Stainless steel may be the hardiest sink material, but not all stainless steel sinks are made equal. To minimise scratches, both the Solo 65 and Couple sinks are handcrafted in top-grade SUS 304 brushed stainless steel. Rinsing and drying after use will keep your sink in good form for years. And avoid cleaning with steel brushes or steel wool too. Affordable and durable, the sink is a worthy investment.
