Seamless Sinks

You know that grime around the sink drain and/or disposal that you have to scrub at whenever it gets gross? This sink does away with all that by having no seams whatsoever. Instead, the strainer basket seals both the drain and disposer sides of a sink, allowing for a clean and sanitary sink bottom. Plus, it looks like the sink is a snap to install because of a simple universal mounting system.

Prices start around $295 for a small bar sink and go up to around $700-$800 for a larger kitchen sink.

Create this room: the kitchen from 40 Bond residences

The new Herzog & de Meuron designed residences for the new Ian Schrager project 40 Bond in NYC are nothing less than you would expect from the H & de M/Schrager design and real estate powerhouses.

The kitchen features high-grade materials and appliances throughout, and to reduce cost, use GE in a hidden microwave and in the garbage disposal. Each kitchen features:

-Wide-plank oak flooring.

-Custom italian imported cabinets with a high gloss lacquer doors by Varenna (est. $20,000-$40,000 depending on configuration).

-Integrated sink with Corain countertop and backsplash. ($445 for sink, ~$2500 for counters depending on linear feet)

-Vola faucet and pullout spray in polished chrome. ($1096.00)

-Custom hand-blown glass pendant light fixture. For a similar effect, you could choose the supernova pendant light. ($1,774.00)

-Up lights and under-cabinet recessed lights.

-Miele 24″ four-burner stainless steel gas cook top. ($1,249.00)

-Miele 24″ stainless steel fully-vented exhaust hood. ($2,749.00)

-Miele 27″ stainless steel electric convection oven. ($3249.00)

-Miele dishwasher with integrated panel to match cabinetry. ($1,249.00)-

-27″ Sub-Zero refrigerator with integrated panel to match cabinetry. (price withheld by manufacturer, but prepare to spend > $4000)

-GE stainless steel microwave, concealed in kitchen cabinetry. ($170)

-GE garbage disposal.

-Also features the Miura Stool by Konstantin Grcic. ($296 each)

Of course you can cut some corners by switching the appliances to less expensive brands, or even sticking with Miele, but downgrading to a more affordable model. To reduce overall cost considerably, you could try the SOLAR cabinets from Ikea with integrated handle, reducing your cost to $2500-$7,000 for cabinets. The construction technique for Ikea cabinetry is pretty similar to the Poliform cabinets, which also features full overlay doors on standard white-box frames. You could also go with the Axor faucet instead of the Vola faucet, saving almost $800.
Lastly, you could choose a different countertop instead of Corian, such as Silestone or another Quartz surface if you don’t mind losing the integrated sink option.
