I’ve toyed with the idea of a black sink for a while but every time I brought it up my husband was indifferent. He wasn’t that thrilled with the idea, but he was open to the suggestion. Since he knows me well enough to know I don’t make decisions lightly, he trusted my judgment. Everyone else was a different story. Friends, my sister and even my mom tried to talk me out of it. Stainless steel sinks are just the norm and no one loved the idea.
Since the colors in my kitchen are all warm tans, brown and black, I really thought the black granite sink would look much better than the stainless. Once I installed the new faucet (I know I went a little backwards here) I knew the old sink had to go. The faucet was calling for a nice dark sink to pair with it.
Just check out the before and after:
When it came to to shop for a sink I spent time checking out all the different options available on efaucets.com The choices were endless and the detailed decriptiks made it really easy to narrow down my choices. Once we decided on a sink, we placed our order and waited for it to arrive so it could be installed
4 Reasons I Love My Black Sink
1. It’s so much bigger than my last sink. While they were both 25 in sinks. The new one has a deeper (and wider) bowl than the standard sink we had. It’s amazing how much more room I have in this new sink.
2. It pairs beautifully with my bronze faucet. While the faucet looked ok on my old stainless sink, it looks fabulous on the dark colors of the composite sink.
3. It hides dirt well. I’ve heard some complaints that black sinks show dirt more and are hard to clean. I can truly say I’ve had no issues with mine. I do dishes several times a day, everyday and the maintenance keeping this sink clean is less than my old sink
4. It’s an easy way to update your kitchen dramatic change without breaking your budget. Replacing our old sink with the dark, dramatic look really brought the room together. It made such a different and I feel like I got a whole new kitchen out of the deal.
Installation was a breeze and the new sink was in an led ready to go in a little under an hour. I never knew just how easy it could be to replace a sink until I undertook this task.
I can’t stop showing off my new sink. Everyone, including the nay-sayers who tried to talk me out of it, love how it looks. It’s the first thing everyone notices when they walk in the kitchen and really gives the kitchen a whole new look.

In fact, the one room left in this house that we haven’t updated since we moved in (over 7 years ago) is our master bath. I’m hesitant to call it that because of just how small it is, but it’s a space that we use a lot and is in dire need of a makeover. When it comes time to shop for a new sink and/or tub enclosure, I’m going back to efacuets.com. So stay tuned for that fun project!
Disclosure: I was sent a sink for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was received. My opinion and love for this sink is all my own.
