Composite Vs. Acrylic Sinks

Save

Many different materials are used to construct sinks, and choosing the right one to complement a home is more difficult than ever. Composite and acrylic sinks have both become very popular and can give a home a very distinct feel.

Construction

  • Acrylic sinks are made from types of plastic, while composite sinks are made by combining natural minerals with a small portion of polyresin or acrylic material.

Durability

  • Both acrylic and composite sinks are very durable, but acrylic sinks can begin to melt if exposed to extreme temperatures, making them a questionable kitchen choice.

Appearance

  • Acrylic sinks often feature a matte finish, while composite sinks resemble the natural mineral they are primarily composed of, such as granite or quartz.

Cost

  • Both acrylic and composite sinks are more expensive than other options, such as stainless steel and ceramic sinks, but they are very durable and stylish.

Color

  • Acrylic sinks can be fashioned to take on any color, but this color can fade over time. Composite sinks are colored throughout to avoid a loss in color.
