    In our new house we want to replace a "Fragranite (?)" sink and drainer unit that has a right hand bowl.
    I think it is Fragranite, it looks like plastic granite.

    The existing unit is LW 980mm x 510mm measuring on the external faces from outside edge to outside edge. (The hole in the work surface is slightly smaller but it wasn't a neat job so the dimensions vary + and- 5mm)

    Could we use a fairly standard replacement such as a Rhombus Stainless Steel 1 1/2 bowl kitchen sink & Drainer as sold by ToolStation, their ref 26859. The problem with these standard units would seem to be the width. Dimensions given in their catalogue are LW 1000mm x 500mm.

    If these units will be too narrow can anyone suggest a suitable source for slightly wider brushed steel sink & drainers please?

    Thank you for looking,
    Bern

    You'll only really be able to tell with the old sink out, and then measure the hole left to see what you are playing with, unfortunately.
    Franke sinks do 510mm width, they are expensive but are worth every penny in my opinion. The 'designer' taps are good too, if there's such a thing!

    Burnerman,

    Thank you for your advice.

    I'll take a look at those Franke sinks too,
