Today’s natural and engineered surfaces offer literally hundreds of design colors and styles. Designers and fabricators often ask how we innovate colors for our durable SILGRANIT® II kitchen sinks. Do you need hundreds of sink hues to match with all of these options? The answer has taken BLANCO’s design team years of color research and technology to perfect, resulting in eight intelligent colors that effortlessly and seamlessly integrate with nearly every new or existing counter surface in the marketplace.
How we match colors to sinks… Start with neutrals or earth tones
“When we visit fabricators or showrooms, we break our eight sink colors into two groups, neutrals and earth tones,” states Tim Maicher, director of marketing for BLANCO. “Then we place stone or quartz products in the center to match to our color families and you can see just how easy it is to find the right color – to match the right counter. In fact, in the example below – the stone product at the bottom center is meant to go with our Earth Tones – but it also blends nicely with our neutral sinks as well. When you have intelligent colors, you don’t need hundreds to make the right match.”
Yes, there’s an app for that.
BLANCO has a newly updated Mobile Color App that lets you mix and match countertops with BLANCO sinks. You can even customize the countertop choices in the App by uploading any countertop material, using your mobile camera! To learn more or download this free App, click here.
When is it time for a new color?
“We are also asked if we will come out with any new colors,” states Maicher. “BLANCO is always monitoring the trends and playing with color formulas, so yes, we’ll continue to innovate as new colors are needed. Cinder was our latest color and is a structured mix of black, brown and grey. As grey is the predominant color for kitchens today, we wanted a warmer, sophisticated grey that would grow with the category. And as colors shift, so will BLANCO’s intelligent color selection.”
