    I have picked a lovely granite for the kitchen and now having a conundrum about the sink. Having spent a few k on the granite, I am not really interested in dropping in a $200 sink from kitchen warehouse. I was wondering about black composite granite? Does anyone have one of these? Also, I just thought that its practically next to a stainless steel stove, so wondering if it would be better to get a stainless steel?

    Here is the granite

    If I went with the granite sink, I would like something like this: Appliances Online

    or for a stainless steel option, something that looks like this:

    Problem is I can't really find a decent sink that looks like that at a reasonable price.

    Now I have confused myself. Black composite granite or stainless steel?

    I like a sink that's mounted under the benchtop (please excuse the mess). 1487071132073-753620074.jpg

    Thanks @Gockie. I am not a fan of the undermount sink and I also want a draining board.

    No worries. By the way for draining I got a drainer from Daiso that's 2 trays, one with lots of holes that snuggly fits inside the other that doesn't have any holes.

    How do the ones you have linked look in relation to the benchtop?

    Mine too at my home... but I tend to think the 1/3 sized sink is not overly useful.

    Good question. I can't see them next to each other at this stage. I will have to think about that

    Which reminds me, is Clark a rubbish brand?

    We have a granite sink which gets stained easy. I'd always go for stainless steel.

    Love the granite and love the black sink. Not sure how it would look but you could maybe still put a stainless tap in to tie in with the stainless stove colouring. images (3).jpg

    My folks have a black sink, looks really good. Especially when it ties up with oven, black tap and induction cooktop

    I think I am leaning towards all stainless steel or all black. If I went all black that tap would look stunning! If I go stainless, I am thinking something like this

    Does it need to be a double banga?
    We have a single at the moment which is enough (400×450×200 deep) but no draining board:oops: not a huge issue but would keep current sink but worth a small drain board <400mm would do
