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 kitchen’s spacious undermount stainless steel sink includes an exposed hose pull-down faucet in black stainless with advanced technology that allows a simple touch of the faucet to start or stop the flow of water. The sink area also includes a coordinating soap dispenser in the same modern finish.
An oversized, undermount farmhouse sink, flanked by Asko dishwashers, accommodates even the largest gatherings while a sleek stainless steel range hood catches the eye above the island in this contemporary kitchen in the HGTV Dream Home 2011.
