Custom stainless sink/counter in kitchen
I’m thinking of getting a custom-order integrated stainless steel sink/counter (the sink would be about 28″ long with about 25″ of counter on either side). I’d like about a 6″ integrated backsplash as well with a wall mount 8″ faucet with mixer above the basin. Ideally, the whole thing would be made with no seal points–just one big piece of stainless.
A few questions for everyone:
1) Has anyone had experience with this kind of a set up? Can anyone recommend a shop/website?
2) This is my residential kitchen–have two small kids. Does a big stainless steel counter like this “patina” well? That is, do the scratches become so abundant that they actually look good. Or is it like there will be 6 or 7 scratches that make me crazy?
(I’m the same person who posted the enamel sink refinishing question earlier today…I think I’m going to have to give up on that one. Just trying to replicate it in an updated material.)
