    Are all mixers noisey AF or is just mine (bunnings)?? Have one very similar to photo. When you Use ours for a midnight drink it sounds like a truck roaring through

    I love black... if you can make them all black it'll look real nice :D they match well with light coloured granite and marble

    I vote stainless btw if you have SS appliances.

    I prefer single sinks (i assume your installing a dish washer) as they are only for big pots and the odd manual wash. and single sink with tap in the centre of the tub. i did extensive research for you and the one i liked was a single deep tub, with a small drying section, and centre mount tap to tub..... turns out it was a "laundry" sink:rolleyes:

    Is the granite to late to get grooves cut in? That way you still get semi usable bench space plus not an ugly tray :)

    I've got this item on my watch list on eBay so that when I'm ready, I'll look into it further. I have a large double bowl, but all we use it for is washing up big baking dishes and the juicer. I need a bigger sink for both. Baking dish one end in at a time is so annoying.

    My son has had this style of sink twice now but in stainless and under mounted. I love it the size, but I'm thinking of going with black granite...

    My neighbour has a black similar sink but double bowl. I'm definitely going for the one large sink next time, and I'm thinking black will not need constant cleaning like stainless does. At least it is harder to see if it needs cleaning.

    I'll miss my drainer, but will probably get grooves cut in to the bench top so that I can still place things on the bench and the water will drain to the sink.

    wow so many varieties!!:eek: I like that one:). I have to get one of those drying rack things! atm we lay down a tea towel on the bench. but im thinking an old oven rack will do the job.
    A similar hack i did was getting a piece of ply to put over the laundry tub basin for extra bench space:cool: we only have a small laundry and that made extra work space

    I got this on eBay 2-3 months ago ($95) and it's a monster in height compared to the one I had but it's grown on me and looks good.

    I have a black sink, its a large single one with drainer, like your picture. Brand is Oliveria. I think it looks fantastic - absolutely no regrets, and the sink is huge - can fit a large bucket for filling up to do mopping or large watering can. Who uses those tiny 1/4 sinks??

    I also have black glass cooktop (induction) and subway tiles with dark grey/black grout so it all matches nicely. have dark grey concrete (ceasarstone) benchtops with brushed stainless steel tapware and other appliances. I's put up a photo but I'm new and not sure how to do it.

    Click on "Upload a File". Then you have a choice of "Thumbnail" or "Full image". I'd always choose "Full image". Because Thumbnails are annoying and take effort for the audience to view.

    I agree with you on the pain of washing baking trays and my electric frypan. I'm getting this Blanco one in the new house - it's not the cheapest but good for a PPOR.

    You can use the full width for washing big things but the small raised side can also act as a drainer, hold colander etc

    Anyhoo. Yesterday, I went to Reece, Good Guys and Bunnos. Good Guys had the nicest sink but it was $850 with a manager discount. Too much. The owner/manager was a really nice guy though. We got talking about the build and he sold me a nice stainless steel Bosch dishwasher. Sale price $689. Owner special $655 :)

    I also picked my sink which is the Bunnings one I linked to earlier.

    Ok. Now I'm disappointed it's not black. :(

    I think black would have been great with a black stove and oven.

    Sink prices always surprise me. Such a huge variation that all look the same/similar to me - I get silver blindness with sinks/tapware.

    It's good to build up a relationship with someone to get those discounts. I have a good relationship with Plumbtec Parkwood and Winnings Appliances. I got my sink for $600 and Siemens dishwashers for under $700.

    If you are after some other Bosch stuff then Winnings at Osborne Park have some specials on stuff that was used at some foodie chef demonstration somewhere - hotplates, ovens, rangehoods etc.
