Blanco Silgranit Sink Colors
Blanco offers a diverse array of colors for granite sinks when compared to other top sink brands.
When we were renovating our kitchen we went through a lot of research and took the time to figure out which brands are the most durable, and which ones are going to last us a long time.
Our cabinets and counter-tops gave our kitchen a modern look to it. There’s a luxurious feel to it when you walk in the room. The sink we selected had to match this. Therefore, we wanted to go with a higher quality sink.
When we met with our designer she recommended a Blanco Silgranit sink.
One thing I noticed when I came across in my research was that some sinks can crack when high temperature foods are poured into the sink like pouring hot water after making pasta.
The Blanco Silgranit sink is heat resistant up to 536° F.

Types of Blanco Silgranit Sinks
Blanco has a huge selection of different types of sinks:
- sinks with drainboards built in
- cascading divide in the sink
- long sinks for your custom kitchen needs
- laundry room sinks
- low divide sinks
- round sinks
- smaller sinks for a petite kitchen
- double bowl sinks
- bar sinks
We decided on the Blanco Silgranit single bowl kitchen sink in Anthracite.
I love the look of the single bowl sinks that are undermounted. The sink and counter-top have clean lines which looks more aesthetically pleasing on the eye. Not only that, I can clean the counter and push all the food scraps into the sink when cleaning up after a meal making it easy to clean the counter.
How deep is the Blanco silgranit sink?
- Bowl depth: 8 5⁄8”
Since the bowl is so much deeper than I was used to, I didn’t realize how many dishes I was going to be able to soak in the sink.
I can soak some dishes while I’m washing other ones at the same time! This makes clean up much quicker than I anticipated.
We haven’t had a dishwasher in about 5 weeks so this was a game-changer for me!!
Another benefit to having such a deep sink…. You can place a few dirty dishes in the sink to be cleaned later and you don’t see them. I can be at my stove cooking away and I don’t see any dishes in my sink, making me feel more calm and relaxed since they are out of sight and out of mind.
One of my favourite things to do in my spare time is making baked goods. I decided to try my hand at making macarons after taking a class locally to see how I would do at making them.
After I was done making macarons about 4 hours later I was cleaning the baking pan and I put it right into the sink. What shocked me is the whole pan fit into the sink and I still had room for other dishes as well. I was able to clean the pan and rinse it off so easily that it seems like doing dishes takes a lot less time for me now.
I never thought that getting a new sink would allow me to do dishes in less time but here we are.
When I drained the sink for the first time I noticed was that it drains the sink completely dry. There isn’t a pool of water waiting at the bottom of the sink. It self cleans by draining itself dry so you can leave the sink perfectly clean when you’re finished with it.
With having new pipe under our sink, it can be drained in about 8 seconds depending on how deep you fill it.
The Blanco Silgranit sink has a non-porous surface which is anti-bacterial. Food will not be absorbed into the material and begin to smell. You can leave dishes to sit in the sink safely and do them at your leisure without worrying about if you’re damaging your sink.
The surface of the sink prevents pots and pans from clanging. You can be assured that this sink won’t be too loud from dropping things in the sink.
When you do your kitchen renovation you want everything to be perfect, you want everything to go well, and you want to know that you made the right choice.
One thing I know for sure, is I know I made the right choice picking the Blanco silgranit sink. It fits so well into our modern kitchen and I can’t imagine picking another one.
It’s just perfect for our life.
