Workstation 17” Undermount 16 Gauge Black Stainless Steel Single Bowl Kitchen Bar Sink in PVD Gunmetal Finish with Accessories

Cook, serve, and entertain in style with KRAUS® Kore™ Workstation Sinks. Offering a bold new color option for stainless steel, the Black PVD Gunmetal finish has a striking modern appearance that makes a statement in any space. Engineered with an integrated ledge to support custom accessories, this compact kitchen bar sink creates a multifunctional workspace that will supercharge the functionality of your bar or entertainment area. The space-saving design makes this sink ideal for use in galley kitchens, RVs, or as an auxiliary prep sink. The kit includes a bamboo cutting board/sink cover that extends your countertop space by allowing you to chop and slice over the sink. Kore™ sinks are made with KRAUS TRU16™ stainless steel – our thickest 16-gauge steel – for maximum durability. Wear-resistant DuraShield™ PVD finish provides enhanced resistance to abrasion and corrosion, with sandblasted matte texture that helps prevent water spots and fingerprints. The single bowl sink installs as an undermount for a seamless transition between sink and countertop, with no exposed mounting deck to trap food and debris. Rounded corners on the sink bottom reduce buildup over time. Thick NoiseDefend™ sound dampening pads help absorb noise and vibration. Channel grooves and a sloped bottom help improve drainage, with a rear-set drain that adds storage space under the sink. The installation-ready kit comes with mounting hardware, bottom grid, and a drain assembly with matching cover.
