Redefining the farmhouse sink for the contemporary world

BLANCO’s VINTERA XL 9 captures the ergonomics and practical benefits of a farmhouse sink with an unmistakable style that fits well into a rustic kitchen design as it does into a modern kitchen design.

Farmhouse sink, also known as apron sink is a common design choice for a country house design, which is experiencing a renaissance but with a modern twist. With the introduction of new materials, colours and technology, a farmhouse sink could even look good in the most contemporary of kitchens.

A modern interpretation of a classic, the VINTERA XL 9 farmhouse sink from BLANCO combines sleek lines with traditional features for an updated and elevated aesthetic that complements both Shaker-style kitchens and industrial-inspired kitchens.

Crafted entirely from Silgranit® – a durable granite composite material with a stone-like surface – which allows for a variety of colours, but also excellent surface performance, the VINTERA XL 9 is far superior than a farmhouse sink made from porcelain. Like all Silgranit® sinks from BLANCO, this retro style bowl is heat-, stain- and scratch resistant for a low maintenance upkeep. It also integrates the patented Hygiene+ Plus protective formula that acts as a shield against dirt and bacteria while reducing bacterial growth by up to 98 per cent.

Material prowess aside, perhaps the most practical choice for a farmhouse sink like this one from BLANCO is its size and depth. The extra-large and deep bowl provides plenty of room for pots and pans. This means no more water splashing out of the sink while doing the dishes. The bowl’s forward orientation is also ergonomically designed to reduce strain from having to lean forward.

When paired with BLANCO’s LIVIA-S mixer tap, the flexible extendable spout allows for an extended range of motion, ensuring a quick rinse down of the edges in the bowl. Furthering this flexibility and convenience is BLANCO’s FLEXON II Low 90/4 waste separation and storage system that fits perfectly under the sink. Together, they are a triple threat that meet the need for function, style and versatility.
