What is a Belfast Sink?

The Oxford Dictionary defines a Belfast sink as: a type of deep rectangular kitchen sink, traditionally made of glazed white porcelain.

The practical and timeless design of the Belfast sink has been a popular choice for the family kitchen for generations.

Having a large deep bowl made of a highly glazed fireclay ceramic the Belfast sink is easy to clean and is resistant to both staining and damage. This practical sink is a popular choice for the classically styled family kitchen.

Where space permits the traditional Belfast single bowl sink can be augmented by a free standing fluted fireclay glazed ceramic drainer.

With its deep wide bowl and pristine white or biscuit glazed finish the Belfast sink is not only an elegant choice for the kitchen but also a practical one; as inevitably those items that are too large for the dishwasher will still end up being washed in the kitchen sink.
