A composite granite sink offers a distinctive, contemporary look to a kitchen or bathroom. Composite granite sinks are made by combining granite, quartz, and acrylic resins. This type of sink is beautiful and extremely durable, but it does come with caveats.


Composite granite sinks require careful installation. The knockout holes on topmount sinks must be carefully hammered or the sink will crack. Undermount sinks must be supported properly with bolts and epoxy to prevent them from collapse through the cabinet sink hole.


The composite granite sink suits most any kitchen design. Manufacturers offer composite granite sinks in a myriad of styles, shapes and colours. The sinks are extremely durable, able to resist most scratches, stains and burns.


Composite granite sinks are very hard and less forgiving on brittle dishware than the more ductile stainless steel sinks. These sinks are usually more expensive than other sinks, some costing £650 or more.
