Bring Color to Your Concrete SinkWith Concrete, Choose Your Own Hue
One of the benefits of choosing concrete for your sink is the range of colors available. Each concrete contractor offers his or her own unique standard and premium colors. And many will create custom colors to help you match or complement other materials.
Samples will always be different because each contractor has their own secret recipe and different types and amounts of cement and aggregates. In fact, cement will vary in different parts of the country. There are different brands of pigments, stains, and aggregate colors, so concrete sinks will always be one-of-a-kind.
The most popular method for coloring concrete sinks is integrally. Color pigments are added to the concrete mix before the sink is cast, creating consistent color throughout the entire piece. The hues available are nearly limitless, ranging from earth tones to more vibrant colors. Learn more about using integral colors to bring life to sinks: Paint-By-Number Concrete Color.
Concrete sinks can also be colored topically with stains. Stains produce a mottled look that many people like for its organic appeal. Typically available in earth tones, stains are great if you want a subdued sink.
