Kitchen sinks are utilitarian, but that doesn't mean they can't be beautiful. This copper drop-in sink will stand up to heavy use and will only get better with age.
The five-sided double bowls have a mirrored finish, contrasting with the hammered deck. Three faucet holes are cut into the triangular rear deck.
The 16-gauge sink does require some babying to keep the matte finish free of fingerprints and calcium mineral buildup. The manufacturer suggests wiping it dry with a soft cloth after each use. An application of soft paste wax will help protect the sink.
A rich patina will gradually develop but the sink can be restored to its original shine with metal polish.
