When you realise how much time you spend at your kitchen sink, you’ll know why this is such an important feature. Whether you’re rinsing vegetables or simply washing your hands, this product has proven to be indispensable. In fact, a stainless-steel sink should not only form a functional part of a kitchen but it should look visually appealing, too.
Our new SASO45/26/BS black-steel worktop sink embraces the trend for matt black in the kitchen. This on-trend design and finish is ideal for a contemporary kitchen style
So, we’re delighted to unveil our new arrival for super-stylish wet zones – the revolutionary SASO stainless-steel sink collection. We asked Assistant Product Manager Ashley to explain what makes these new additions, to our comprehensive product portfolio, so special:
At Caple, we were looking for a unique sink structure, which would add the wow factor to every wet zone. So, we explored ways in which we could achieve a sleeker aesthetic. Then we discovered how to clad the sink with a striking waterfall worktop. This would leave only the bowl base and overflow on view, for a more discreet finish. This innovative production technique has been specifically designed to work with three worktops – quartz, solid surface and stone. So, this makes the SASO stainless-steel sink collection ideal for luxury kitchens, where style is key.
We also wanted to ensure caring for your sink would be easy. So, we have designed each side of the base to slant towards the base for easier access to clean the corners and edges.
Each sink is, essentially, an undermount model. However, your installer will fabricate the sides of the bowl with your worktop first, to create a box-like structure. This is then connected to the top of your work surface to create a seamless finish. Your installer will then slide your sink into place so only the base is on view. Holes are then made to create space for a tap* and overflow, which will make this revolutionary design complete.
*For point of reference, this sink does not come with a tap hole so this will be cut into the worktop.
The stainless steel sink has been one of the most popular products for residential and commercial kitchens for years. It’s no surprise why, when you consider that this material is ultra-durable, and stain and heat-resistant, too. A high-quality stainless-steel sink won’t chip, fade, crack or stain. So, your model will stand the test of time and should be easy to maintain. We chose a 1.2mm brushed stainless steel for our new collection. This was because we were looking for a sink, which would look as good as new for years to come. We also wanted to add different colours to this stainless-steel sink collection for an aesthetically pleasing finish.
Colourful sinks continue to prove popular as people become more adventurous in the wet zone in the kitchen. So, what was once purely a functional must-have for washing, can now become a statement piece with colour. For our SASO stainless-steel sink collection, we have carefully hand-picked five distinctive shades for a contemporary finish. You can simply choose stainless steel or add another dimension to your kitchen design with black steel, gold, copper or gunmetal.
At Caple, we know the importance of aesthetics in every modern kitchen, so we’ve created a colour-matching base and overflow. And for those who want to take your creative sink design to another level, you can pick folding matt and grid accessories. Style-wise, either colour-match these extras with your new SASO stainless-steel sink or choose a contrasting shade for added glamour.
A matching grid will not only look stylish but will also help to reduce wear and tear on the surface of your sink. This is a brilliant accessory, which can help to improve drainage. A sink grid will also enable you to add a custom look to the base of your stainless-steel sink bowl. And this accessory will prevent vegetables from touching the base of the bowl when rinsing.
Your wet zone will feel complete if you can kit it out with must-have accessories. Our new grids and folding mats not only look good as they colour-match our new SASO sinks, but they will make your wet zone more functional, too.
Our folding mats are very useful for drying washing-up, especially if you have a groove-free draining area in your worktop. And they will also make the most from the available space around your sink. I tend to fold up my mat when I’m not using it and it makes a great trivet for hot pots and pans, too.
