Try a Copper Sink

To get a fast, easy and dramatic makeover, then consider replacing your kitchen sink to get a copper one. Hand shaped, a copper sink may add character using its own color, form and ever-changing patina. It’s famous for its sanitary advantages (germs can endure copper just for a matter of hours), and plain old warm, sterile water cleans it all best. Copper is continually changing color and developing attention and variation with time, however you can slow down this process using automobile wax treatments a couple of times a year. Whether your kitchen is rustic, traditional or eclectic, a copper sink will do the job superbly and will certainly work as a conversation piece.
