Fireclay sinks are more durable than ceramic sinks, as they are nonporous and very heat resistant. Ceramic sinks run a higher risk of chipping or scratching.


Both fireclay and ceramic sinks are highly customisable and can be designed to take on almost any shape or appearance. This makes them very flexible and allows them to fit nearly any style of home.


Cleaning is easy with either fireclay or ceramic sinks. Both feature smooth surface that do not allow for dirt build-up, and neither product is likely to be damaged by traditional cleaning supplies.


Fireclay sinks are actually a form of ceramic, but they are composed primarily of clay and other minerals that give them a tougher exterior.


Ceramic and fireclay sinks are both affordable and make good alternatives to more expensive options such as granite or marble.
