A commitment to upkeep comes with natural stone sinks.
When considering selecting a natural stone sink, factor in that acidic and oily substances will penetrate the surface of the natural stone, leaving a stain to deal with.
Over time, the patina of these sinks rests and becomes a perfectly imperfect design feature, one that accentuates the natural beauty of the stone.
