New Blanco Metra corner kitchen sink saves space, adds style

    TORONTO, April 15 /CNW/ - Premium sink manufacturer Blanco, will
introduce a stylish new corner kitchen sink this spring at designs shows
across Canada.
    The new Metra corner model will add to the the more than 100 sink models
currently available in Silgranit and will initially be available in the
company's most popular Silgranit colour, Anthracite as well as the newest
colour, Silk grey. It will also expand the company's offering of corner sink
models which includes corner sinks in both premium stainless steel and
Silgranit natural stone.
    "When designing a kitchen, most consumers and many designers are not
aware of the wide range of possible sink placements or styles available," says
Alexandra Marshall, director of marketing with Blanco Canada. "Corner sinks
are great space-savers in the kitchen, using countertop space that otherwise
might be unused. This reserves longer straight-runs of countertop for other
tasks. They are also less commonly seen in kitchens and therefore can make
even the most standard kitchen look custom-designed."
    The Metra features a distinctly contemporary European style with two
square bowls and an integrated drainer board for food preparation. Designed
and manufactured in Germany by Blanco, it is made of Silgranit, a highly
durable composite material composed of 80 percent natural granite and premium
acrylic. Silgranit is scratch-proof, exceptionally durable, and highly stain-,
heat- and chip-resistant, making it possible to cut vegetables right on the
sink drainer surface.
    "Silgranit sinks are unique in the marketplace," says Alexandra Marshall,
director of marketing with Blanco Canada, "with numerous patents owned by
Blanco relating to both the material composition and our manufacturing
processes. They are ideal for the consumer who wants an easy-care sink that
maintains its beauty over the long term."
    Designed for topmount installation on any countertop surface including
laminates, the sink features a flat rim that makes it ideal for undermount
installation to any stone countertop. The company will also launch a new line
of coloured faucets in all seven Silgranit colours so that consumers can
complement the Metra sink with a coloured faucet.
