Hello all,

We have updated the hardware on our cabinets with the rubbed bronze finished hardware and are now planning to change our faucet to match, however I'm not sure what type of sink to get. We have black finished appliances, i feel like a stainless sink would stick out really bad especially with a rubbed bronze faucet, and I'm not sure how a black sink would look. Any thoughts?

I fretted over this when I remodeled my kitchen because I went with all black appliances. Then I walked into a model home and saw a kitchen with black appliances and a white sink, and it didn't stand out or look funny in the least. I actually copied that kitchen and used the same type of materials and colors in my own home. SS wouldn't look out of place either, I've had them in all sorts of kitchens with all sorts of colors/materials. SS and white are universal, like a white toilet or tub in a bath with other colors.

Hard water deposits do eventually build up on granite sinks (porcelain too). Once every two weeks or so I would wipe our granite sink out with a Mr. Clean Eraser - it completely removes any deposits - then I sprayed with granite polish....that sink looked brand new all the time.

I would stick with the stainless sink. Stainless is practically neutral.

Could you post a picture of your kitchen? What color are the counter tops?

I have to disagree with you on this - stainless can be a neutral but not always.

I want to say that black would look much better with the rubbed bronze faucet but we don't know what the counters look like.
