10 beautiful Belfast sinks that work well in a contemporary setting

The Belfast sink is a truly timeless design that can enhance a clean-lined contemporary kitchen and just as easily add a vintage element to a modern scheme – we round up 10 of the latest products on the market.

1. Rangemaster's Grange is a sit-on, cabinet-style Belfast sink and features slim profile walls, which give a streamlined look as well as provide a slightly larger bowl. Its slimline walls are matched by sharper radius corners to deliver a modern twist on a much-loved design classic. Plus, the on-trend Matt Black finish adds a contemporary touch to the timeless design.

2. The Blanco Belfast sink with its integrated overflow and extremely deep bowl depth of 222mm, is perfect for large pots and pans. The high-quality ceramic material, with a non-porous glaze, offer a clean finish and durable surface that is also shock-resistant.

3. The Kallio M-100 modular sink is from Schock’s Cristadur Green Line range. It is available in four popular colourways; Day, Night (pictured here), Twilight and Dusk, and can be teamed with a choice of visible waste parts in Stainless Steel, White Gold, Copper, Gunmetal and Puro. Suitable for 60cm cabinets, the Kallio M-100 measures 518 x 465 x 220mm making it particularly useful for larger pots and pans.

4. Abode's AW5135 Stainless Steel Belfast Sink offers a contemporary twist on a classic design. Its large capacity bowl is ideally suited to the keen chef, making washing large items that are not suitable for the dishwasher a breeze. Suitable for 60cm minimum base units, and with an overall length of 465mm.

5. The Infinity Smart butler sink in Brushed Stainless Steel from Clearwater creates a lustrous appearance in the kitchen. The architectural aesthetics are enhanced by the shallow front apron that disguises the true depth of the sink. All models have an integrated ledge to accommodate an essential range of included accessories that maximise the Infinity Smart’s abilities. These include a wooden chopping board & stainless steel tray. The sinks also include a 90mm concealed basket waste and overflow system.

6. The Shaws of Darwen Patina design from its Gallery sink collection is formed through a chemical reaction creating a lush abstraction of colour and shine. The sinks are available in Butler 600mm, Butler 800mm, Shaker Double 900mm, Shaker Single 800mm and Double Bowl 800mm versions. Pictured here is the Gallery Shaker Single Sink in Patina Blue/Gold.

7. This glorious open-plan kitchen by Sustainable Kitchens offers large glass doors to create an almost seamless transition between the interior and exterior, while the abundance of plants complements and enhances the dark grey cabinetry.

8. Combining the beauty of ceramic in a sleek, modern style, Franke’s Kubus ceramic undermount sink combines perfectly with a variety of worktop materials. The range features two single-bowl models and a fully reversible 1.5 bowl model to fit either a 500mm or 600mm cabinet, with the assurance of a 50-year warranty. Pictured is the 1.5 bowl model in Gloss White.

9. New for 2024 is Reginox’s Belfast ll sink, which builds on the quality of its mk1 predecessor and has a total dimension of 595 x 460mm. In keeping with Reginox’s renown for design, its simple yet stylish aesthetic is equally at home in a traditional or contemporary setting, such as ‘skinny’ Shaker kitchen. 

10. The Shapwick sit-on ceramic sink from Caple is hand finished, so no two sinks are ever exactly alike. With an overall sink depth of 200mm, it offers users plenty of space for washing bigger pans and dishes, and it comes with the company's special Hygiene Finish to reduce surface bacteria.
