Summer Inspiration

Welcome to our Inspiration page. This is a page to get a feel for what our hand-crafted sinks can do for you – providing the overall notion of what we want to bring to your living area.

We are delighted to share with you a handful of things that we have found over the past months that we love, that inspires us and what we hope will inspire you too…

A newly radiant sun steps forth from the springtime, wrapping us in warm rays. With the new season here, we also welcome current realms of inspiration. Here are our favourite picks of how ceramic sinks will benefit you this summer!


Each handcrafted sink in our traditional Heritage Collection is as practical as it is beautiful, and equally at home in traditional or contemporary kitchens.

Sinks for Summer

Summer is here and don’t we love to see the sun shining over our beautiful Lancashire greenland. Here are our top picks for creatively using fireclay sinks to make your life easier outdoors this Summer.

Adding a larger fireclay sink to your outdoor living space means avoiding dirty carpets and flooring, as there will be no more having to wrestle the muddy dog upstairs for a bath after a walk! Also, think of the freedom of being able to clean your muddy boots as nonchalant as you please, say goodbye to scrubbing your muddy boots in the kitchen sink, leaving splatters of mud all over the kitchen cabinets!

We love the idea of filling an old fireclay sink full of beautiful, vibrant plants and flowers. Stunning tones of the rainbow will spill over the top of the crisp, white sink as though the tap of greenery has been left on for too long allowing the sink to flourish… Using an old Belfast sink for this would be great for adding a unique, vintage feel to your garden. You could even create a small herb garden in your sink, or go all out and grow some veggies!

Bring your sink back to life! Fill your old sink with lightweight aggregate, lay stones/pebbles and small plants on the top along with dinosaur toys. Let their imagination run free with a miniature dinosaur garden! See the link below to find a blog post by Simon Orchard Garden Design to see a step-by-step on how to do this…

Having a fireclay sink can also work wonders for those hot days where a BBQ is definitely on the table. Without having enough washing up to do after a BBQ, cleaning the utensils can be a job in it’s own after you’ve forgotten to bring them in and run them through the dishwasher! Having a sink outside will give you the ease of added cleanliness for nights where dinner is out at the garden table. A soapy sink to wipe up any spillages, a quick clean of any glasses and wiping down the BBQ racks only a few steps away, you’ll wonder why you never had one before!
