Obsessed With My New Crafted Stainless Steel Sink
Our friend Kayla over @thefarmhousepages on Instagram recently installed the brand new Percy Crafted Stainless Steel kitchen sink. She was kinda enough to share with us some gorgeous photos and how the installation went!
HEY Y’ALL! I love and am boarder line obsessed with everything ‘farmhouse’ and I’ve been blessed and privileged to have the opportunity to collaborate with an incredible company, SINKOLOGY!
I loved our kitchen before, but our old sink was very undersized, and our faucet was showing age and wear (the chrome finish was beginning to flake off!). The previous owners of the house made a few renovations to the kitchen, not long before we purchased from them-but they weren’t exactly what we were wanting. They had painted the countertops to their liking (attempted to imitate black granite) and used baseboards as a backsplash to which they painted the same color/finish. To clarify, the paint they used, was designed for countertops.
One of the first things we did, after purchasing, was try our hand at painting them with the same countertop-paint-kit they used. And we loved the look, but we had trouble with the finish chipping and staining, so we decided to replace the countertops before installing our sink. Unfortunately the counter tops did not arrive, to be installed, until well after our sink was delivered. So, that put us in a bit of a time constraint to complete our project!
Let me also point out that our FORTIFY Crafted Stainless Steel kitchen sink arrived so incredibly quickly, within a week and a half of making our decision. Speaking of the decision making process, it was so enjoyable because of the ease of use of Sinkology’s website. On said site, they have so many choices and designs. We decided to go with a Percy Farmhouse Apron Crafted Stainless Steel Sink in Polished, paired with a Pfister Zuri faucet! We love the hammered finish of the sink and the sleek design of the faucet. And installing each of them was a breeze. My husband and brother in law had the countertop cut and sink (and faucet) set in place in less than two hours. They used a 1.5” hole saw drill bit for the faucet piping to go through, and cut the counter top out with a jig saw, after making a template of the sink out of cardboard. SUPER EASY! We also installed a white subway tile backsplash to compliment our gorgeous Percy stainless steel sink!
Now that the install has been completed, we’ve thoroughly enjoyed the the look and function of our Percy stainless steel kitchen sink, Pfister Zuri faucet which combines the function of a commercial faucet with the sleek modern day residential design, kitchen sink bottom grid (for protecting the sink surface) and the Sinkology Care IQ kit! The kit includes a sponge specifically for cleaning your sink’s surface without damaging it, “Restore” cleaning polish used to remove scuffs, surface stains, and scratches, “Defend” protective sealant to give your stainless sink an alluring luster, and a microfiber cloth to safely apply each substance to the surface of our sink.
We absolutely LOVE each and every Sinkology product’s functionality and aesthetic appeal. Our only regret is that we did not to acquire their cutting edge products sooner!
