WYB - Ceramic Kitchen Sinks Under £275

Kitchen sinks, kitchen basins, call them what you like - we all need them don’t we. Finding them is easy but choosing the perfect one for your kitchen always seems to be a slightly trickier task, but don’t worry, the WYB team are back and this week we’ll be dissecting your options to see which ceramic kitchen sinks you can buy for less than £275.

What is a ceramic kitchen sink?

Okay, i’m sure we all know what a kitchen sink is, but apart from that thing you wash your dishes in or empty your kettle or sour milk, for many people the kitchen sink is a very practical area which can also create an attractive corner of your kitchen - should you get it right!

Ceramic kitchen sinks come in a range of styles and sizes, but unlike standard kitchen sinks which are usually made of stainless steel these basins are made from ceramic. This material makes them strong, durable and easier to clean.

A popular option right now is the butler sink, also known as a belfast sink, which is a deep ceramic basin which also comes in double bowl options or twin sinks. The double bowl option allows for extra practicality and function; such as washing dishes in one side and rinsing dishes in the other. Another function for an added bowl could be for washing things such as fruit and veg if your other sink is in use.

Other kitchen sinks include standard ceramic basins with a drainage board and single bowl ceramic kitchen sinks which can be inset into kitchen worktops or semi-inset which leaves the front of the basin exposed; ideal for farmhouse styles or a rustic look.

Choosing a ceramic kitchen sink under £275

Buying a ceramic kitchen sink on a budget will obviously restrict you slightly from some of the larger, pricier basins, but if you think you’d be short of choice you’d be happy to hear that isn’t the case.

If you have a very good friend who will help you then definitely give them a call (and be nice), but if you're not so lucky then take a look at our guide for replacing a kitchen sink as you may be able to do it yourself!

Buying kitchen sinks on a budget

Budget ceramic kitchen sinks aren’t the cheapest kitchen sinks around, but you can certainly find a quality item for less than £275. Prices do vary and can range well over £500 however you’ll certainly have a durable and well made product for a £275 budget.

Please ensure you factor in the cost of kitchen taps as these will not come with a ceramic kitchen sink and will certainly be needed to complete your sink, unless you have an old set of taps you’ll be using. There’s nothing wrong with reusing old kitchen taps which you just can't let go of although a new sink will definitely benefit from a brand new tap in most cases.

Some kitchen sinks may not come with a drainage board or drainer but you can pick up one of these for less than £100. Here’s a ceramic belfast sink kitchen drainer from Reginox which would complement many kitchen sinks in a wide range of styles.

One other thing which is useful to note is that a £275 budget means that no matter the style of sink you want, this budget will allow you to choose any sort of ceramic kitchen sink style which means you’re not at all limited on options.

Finally, if you're serious about updating the sink area then you may want to think about the wall area too. A stunning display of kitchen tiles could create the perfect finish. A very popular option right now is the metro tile range. Grey metro tiles and white metro tiles have really dominated through 2016 right through to 2017! If you're in need of some DIY inspiration, why not take a look at our wall tiles section from our 8 Trade Tips For Perfect DIY Tiling blog?
