Brass or copper kitchen sink and tap

    Our new build house came with the cheapest, shîttiest steel sink and tap in the kitchen that we are already having problems with barely 12 months in. We want to replace it, but with our colour scheme, a brass or copper sink would look great. Any ideas where I might find them? Stainless steel seems to be the only option in the majority of places but I’ve never bought a kitchen sink before so I could be missing somewhere really obvious to look.

    Quick Google search brought up these fellas who sell brass/copper/gold "coloured" sinks. They look good, but it's just a coating, so you'd have to be assiduous in your cleaning regime:

    All sorts of offerings on Etsy ...

    Seem to be plenty of companies and suppliers in the UK, I'd expect there to be as many in EU countries as well, if you'd prefer not to get entangled with Customs/VAT/Brexit issues.

    If you're near a B&Q, they have got quite an alternative range of sinks compared to the bog standard stainless steel ones.
