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).
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.
A small window casts natural light over this polished kitchen sink area. Woodgrain cabinetry and a neutral countertop surround the stainless steel sink. A line of lemons add natural decoration and color.
A white cafe curtain and gray tile backsplash provide a white palette for the rich wood countertop. A stainless steel kitchen sink and brushed nickel faucet break up the brown countertop for an industrial touch.
