A copper kitchen sink is not created in factories like the stainless steel sink that is a common sight in most homes. Copper kitchen sinks are handcrafted, forged from high quality copper, and hammered and shaped into timelessly beautiful pieces of kitchen art that can last the owner a lifetime. A copper kitchen sink is one of the most sanitary types of sinks available on the market. With your standard stainless sink bacteria can live for days but on a copper sink bacteria can only survive for a few hours.

Copper kitchen sinks are made of heavy, solid copper and come in natural copper patinas of ‘Weathered Copper’ or in ‘Dark Bronze’ copper. Copper kitchen sinks may have a hand hammered surface and some of them come with polished and satin nickel finish. The dark farm sinks have a warm, dark brown finish. Extra thick casting will easily weather a lifetime of use while absorbing noise and deflecting scratches and dings. Copper sinks are extremely resistant to stains and discoloration. They are called ‘live’ sinks, because their patina ages and improves with time. Moreover, copper is known to keep bacteria at bay, providing a healthier environment.
