Kitchen products manufacturer Blanco has reimagined the traditional apron-front kitchen sink with its Vintera collection, a line of clean, contemporary farmhouse sinks.
In addition to the fresh take on the farmhouse design, the Vintera sinks can be installed flush-mount rather than just the typical undermount installation. This makes the sink flush with the countertop, allowing for a seamless installation, says Blanco. The sinks can also be undermounted.

Other farmhouse sinks are also known—and loved—for their large size. But the large size often requires custom cabinetry. Blanco says it has eliminated this hurdle by designing the Vintera sinks to fit a standard base cabinet measuring the same width as the sink.
"We are proud to introduce the Vintera collection—it offers a fresh and unique farmhouse perspective with a streamlined design,” says Edyta Drutis, director of brand and communications for Blanco North America. “This collection is perfect for today’s demanding kitchens and will satisfy homeowners and designers who are looking for a modern version of the popular farmhouse style. This is another example of outstanding design and commitment to product excellence from Blanco.”
Vintera sinks offer a sleeker, more modern approach to the average apron-front sink. It offers a slimmer 6.5-inch apron front, whereas other apron-front sinks feature 10-inch aprons. Despite offering a thinner profile, it retains a deep 9-inch bowl.

These sinks are available in a 30-inch Super Single size and a 33-inch Equal Double size. The company says the sinks are stronger and more durable than other sink surfaces due to its Silgranit construction. Silgranit is Blanco’s granite composite material that offers a Hygienic Plus surface formula, which protects the surface from dirt and bacteria, reducing bacteria growth by up to 98%.
Blanco says Silgranit is mainly composed of quartz sand, the strongest component of granite. This gives the Vintera sinks a stone-like texture and makes it easy to clean.
