TORONTO, Feb. 24 /CNW/ - This spring, at design shows across Canada,
premium kitchen sink manufacturer Blanco, will unveil a new colour in its line
of Silgranit natural stone sinks. Silk, a light concrete-look grey, will be
available in several sink models including a large single bowl and a round
island or bar sink. A highly durable composite material made of 80 percent
natural granite, Silgranit is Canada's leading coloured-sink brand.
Blanco developed Silk in response to the latest home décor colour trends.
"Grey is a very strong colour in home décor this year." says Alexandra
Marshall, director of marketing for Blanco Canada. "We're seeing new kitchen
cabinetry, tiles, paint and countertops in a wide range of warm and cool
greys. Silk is a very light, neutral grey that blends well with many other
colours, so we also believe that it will have long-term staying power."
Blanco offers more than 100 sink models in Silgranit and seven colours,
and continues to expand the successful line every year. The company will also
introduce a faucet and soap dispenser in Silk to complement the new sinks.
"Silgranit is exceptionally durable as well as beautiful," adds Ms.
Marshall. "Scratch-proof and highly heat-resistant, it can withstand a pot of
boiling water straight from the stove. It is also non-porous, stain-resistant
and very easy to clean. This makes it excellent value as a long-term
The new colour was developed to complement a wide range of popular
countertops including granites, quartz and laminates.
"Silk is a highly versatile grey that creates a different look in the
kitchen depending on the type of countertop selected," adds Ms. Marshall.
"Paired with marble or a grey quartz, it creates a sophisticated, elegant
look; with a bright blue, red or black quartz top, the result is a bold
contemporary or urban effect."
Silgranit sinks are manufactured in Toronto and Sinsheim, Germany.
