When it comes to kitchen and bathroom remodels, there are several elements that require attention. However, many homeowners jump into the process without a complete understanding of the details to come. For example, many people know they want to upgrade to granite countertops but stop there. Here at Spencer Granite, we know the ins and out, which is why we’re prepared for those little things you may not be thinking about – like Alba sinks.

Yes, in this article, we’re talking sinks. Believe it or not, your sink is possibly one of the most overlooked, yet important parts of your kitchen and bathroom! From choosing the most durable for your home’s traffic pattern to understanding the care and maintenance required, every detail matters when creating the remodel of your dreams.


Why Alba sinks?

Constantly striving for perfection, the Alba brand provides some of the most versatile and durable sinks for both residential and commercial settings. Whether your remodel focuses on a modern-day feel or an old-world traditional aesthetic, Alba’s attention to detail ensures a timeless design fit for any environment.


In the kitchen.

Manufactured from the 304 stainless steel, Alba kitchen sinks are certified and approved for homes through industrial kitchens. Single design or double, the options range from small rectangle side sinks to oversized round. Designed for undermount installation, these sinks create a seamless appearance with the ultimate durability.


For the bathroom.

When it comes to stainless steel, the material is a perfect match for kitchens. However, we can’t say the same for bathrooms. Instead, ceramic and porcelain bowls are the way to go. Available in various colors, finding the sink to enhance the overall aesthetic of your remodel is a breeze. Choose your color and desired shape, and the experts at Spencer Granite will take care of the rest.

Let’s talk maintenance.

As we mentioned earlier, knowing how to care for your new sink is important for a long-lasting beautiful appearance. Here is a brief overview of Alba sink maintenance:

  • Stainless Steel – This type of sink should be cleaned at least once a week. There are several products available at your local store designed to clean and enhance the look of your steel. Begin by wiping the sink dry with a soft cloth, working with the grain. You want to avoid abrasive products on the steel surface – sponge pads, wire brushes, and steel wool, for example. Scratches are inevitable, but it’s important not to encourage them!
  • Porcelain – A combination of warm water and a gentle liquid soap is all that is needed to effectively clean a porcelain sink. Of course, a once per week (at least) disinfectant is always a good idea as well! Like stainless steel, you’ll want to avoid scrubbing your sink with abrasive products.
