  1. I like the copper sinks a lot. They have a lot of cool colors that come out of them over time and use as well as being practical. Copper itself is an antimicrobial surface that is naturally self-renewing. Few metals have these properties of being both germ free and able to naturally repair themselves. Pretty and practical!
