How Krion™ can help you in the kitchen

Krion™ in the kitchen.

28/01/2022

The current Covid-19 pandemic has led to a rethink of space in homes as well as restaurants and hospitality, as we search for a new, safer and more comfortable way of life. 

In this sense, evolving design and technologies have been fundamental to creating healthy and uncrowded multipurpose spaces - with hygiene at the forefront. This is key in places as crowded as the kitchen, where the worktop is the undisputed star.

Thanks to the variety of finishes available and its physical, hygienic and design characteristics, Krion™ perfectly meets the requirements we're all searching for in kitchen surfaces at the moment.

Custom-made, resistant and sustainable kitchen worktops

Kitchen worktops are heavily used, and hygiene and cleanliness should always be a priority, so it's important to look for the right materials for this area. Because Krion™ is a no apparent porosity materials it prevents the build-up of food residues on its surface, and also offers maximum hygiene by stopping the proliferation of bacteria and microorganisms on its surface. And it's safe to come into direct contact with food.

  

Another advantage of Krion™ is how easily it can be adapted to your kitchen design, with its high thermoforming capacity and joint-free pieces. This means it can be used to create smooth and continuous surfaces, without any corners or grooves for dirt and debris to gather, helping you to keep your kitchen clean easily, conveniently and practically.

                    

The current trend in kitchen design is to finish the worktop edge in the same thickness as the piece itself, but at Krion we offer different edge finishes to add enhanced design and functionality. Edge finishes that control spillages are easier to clean, for both floors and worktops and furnishings, whilst bevelled and angled edges will give your kitchen a personalised, unique look. Krion offers 3 different splashback solutions for connecting the worktop to the wall, each adapted to both the style and needs of the space, and with cleanliness and hygiene in mind.

Easy to maintain and repair, Krion™ can be worked in the same way as wood, making it easier for industry professionals to handle and install. Its high mineral composition makes it resistant to the type of damage that might occur in kitchens such as scratches, stains, marks, cracks or blows. Krion™ is resistant to all types of products used for cleaning and disinfection, but water and a cloth is all you need to keep it clean on a daily basis.

What's the best material for a kitchen sink? 

As well as your worktop, one other kitchen element stands out in offering essential aesthetic and functional features: the sink. Round, square, rectangular, single or double-bowl...

Whatever you choose, one thing's for certain: your sink is key to the overall hygiene of your kitchen. You might be wondering various things when making a decision: What's the best material for a kitchen sink? 

  • Everyone loves porcelain. It's elegant and urban in equal measure. But it comes with pitfalls, as well as a high price tag. It can be fragile in the face of blows to the surface. 
  • Stainless steel in various finishes is probably the most popular choice of material for sinks. But if it isn't made in a high quality material, it can lose its look over time. 
  • Natural stone such as granite or marble is an incredibly attractive option. But as well as a high price tag, it requires specialist care to keep it looking good over time. 

Without a doubt, one material stands out above the rest: Krion Solid Surface. The mineral-based composition and technical performance of this material puts it in a different league to other materials used in sink manufacturing. 

Single-bowl sinks 

When you're choosing a sink, the material you go for is of course important, and you'll ideally find one that's antibacterial and hygienic such as Krion Solid Surface. But you also need to think about the number of basins you need. 

You essentially have three options, which can come with or without a draining board: a single or double-bowl sink, or one halfway between - known as a 1.5-bowl sink.

Single-bowl sinks are generally the most popular option for smaller kitchens, as a larger one will take up valuable worktop space and make the space less functional. 

They also suit kitchens with dishwashers given that the sink is less crucial, so the space can be taken up by more practical elements. 

But beyond the practicalities, a one-bowl sink is also an aesthetically-pleasing option. Larger single-bowl sinks like the ones available in our catalogue, make a practical choice that will add a stylish and sophisticated feel to your kitchen 

Double-bowl kitchen sinks 

Double-bowl sinks are a fantastic and convenient option in the kitchen - if the space allows. They're a handy addition which you'll make use of every day: use one for dirty dishes or washing up, and the other for rinsing or cleaning fruit and vegetables.

Whether you've got a dishwasher or not, a double-bowl sink is the best you can get, provided you've got the space. Even if you have a dishwasher, you'll still need to wash up larger items like salad bowls and dishes. 

Krion has more to offer than hygienic, easy-to-clean materials such as the worktop solid surface. It also offers a wide range of elements for the kitchen, home or business, with exclusive design and maximum functionality at the fore, including single or double-bowl sinks
