If you’ve got just a bit of money to spend on color, consider putting it into one high-impact piece: your sink. While showstopping cast-iron or fireclay sinks can run you well into four figures, this porcelain-coated stainless steel Porcela sink from Houzer is durable, lightweight and can be found for under $400 at Wayfair.com. This model comes in lemon yellow, mint green and navy blue (shown).
This home's kitchen was completely reconfigured to make it more of a space for entertaining. Upgrades included integrating appliances into the design for a cleaner look and opening the room up to the nearby dining and living rooms.
A stainless steel farmhouse sink complements the stainless dishwasher and provides contrast to the dark-stained wood cabinets in this kitchen's sink area. A window above the sink provides lots of natural light for the various potted herbs on the neutral stone countertops.
The design inspiration began with a deep green soapstone countertop paired with creamy white cabinetry. The stainless steel appliances and sink create a more transitional feel, while the shaker style cabinetry doors and schoolhouse light fixture keep with the original style of the home.
