Kraus infused its Natura line of composite sinks with nanotechnology to make them beautiful and durable. Natura comes in a number of shapes so you can easily incorporate one into whatever design you imagine.
Science and technology continue marching through our homes and are now making our lives easier in our bathrooms. Natura™ is a line of solid surface sinks from Kraus with nanotechnology embedded in a thin, ultra-hard gel coating that helps protect the sink from stains, marks and scratches.
What is Solid Surface?
Solid surface is an engineered composite material that is similar in appearance to natural stones like granite. Since its development, solid surface has been the choice for many home improvement and construction experts because it is a durable, low maintenance, antimicrobial material. Solid surface is resistant to many household chemicals: trisodium phosphates, ammonia, and mild acids will have no impact. If you get chemicals like bleach or nail polish remover on your Natura sink, you see the finish become cloudy, but you can restore it by sanding it or washing it with appropriate cleaners.
Care and Cleaning
To prevent water spots, daily rinse and wipe the inside of your Natura sink with a microfiber cleaning cloth.
To maintain your sink, treat the surface once a month with baby oil using a microfiber towel.
The Natura collection features nine different bathroom models, each sink varying in size, shape or by installation method:
Vessel Sinks: Easily install vessel sinks above the vanity. For this type of installation, you will need: a 4” hole saw, silicone sealant, a drill, safety goggles, a pencil, and a tape measure.
Undermount Bathroom Sinks: Below-vanity installation creates an uninterrupted flow from the vanity into the sink. This type of installation requires you to have a pencil, safety goggles, drill, silicone adhesive, jigsaw, scissors, a putty knife, tape measure, screwdriver and a drill.
Semi-Recessed Bathroom Sinks: A good compromise between undermount and vessel configurations, these sinks only partially protrude from the vanity. To install, you will need safety goggles, a drill, pencil, silicone adhesive, a jigsaw, scissors, putty knife, tape measure, and a drill.
Kraus Natura sinks have an MSRP of $350 to $550 and comes with a limited lifetime warranty against defects.
