Your cooking space won't feel under-decorated if you go for a minimalist kitchen sink. In fact, you'll be able to create physical and visual space for the kitchen items you really love. And if you go more streamlined with your sink, you'll likely have more counter space. Small kitchens rejoice!

From drop-in and integrated to drop-apron and undermount, there are all types of sinks that can be minimalist with the right placement and faucet. But where to start?

Take a look at some majorly minimalist kitchen sinks that will help you make the smart choice for your home.

1. Make it concrete.

When you're going big with your remodel, make a statement with your single-bowl sink, like in this concrete kitchen from Mar Plus Ask. It gets a serious standing ovation.

2. Take it off the wall.

Even a marble sink can feel minimal if you integrate the basin. This major marble combo with a chic wall mounted faucet from Scott and Scott Architects is giving us major kitchen envy.

3. Drop it in.

Live in a smaller space or trying to keep your kitchen budget from going bust? Look no further than a drop-in minimalist kitchen sink. This one from Signature Hardware will be affordable and minimalist. Add a sleek faucet and gray cabinets, like they did here, for extra oomph.

4. Go for sophisticated stainless steel.

A stainless steel sink, like this one from Blanco, is classic in its simplicity. We like it with black countertops for just the right amount of wow.

5. Get comfortable with contrast.

Spice up a white kitchen with light wood floors and classic subway tile by adding a moody black sink with a high-arc faucet. It'll add heaps of contrast. We especially like this black option from All Modern.

6. Make it artful.

When your kitchen is like a work of art, why not install a sink that's artful too? This island sink has all the elements of minimalist design. But there are special additions like a bronze faucet that coordinate with the counter inserts. And of course, white walls keep everything feeling simplistic.

7. Add a touch of modern farmhouse.

If you're not ready to make a lifelong commitment to a minimalist look in your entire kitchen, just go for a minimalist integrated island sink. Studio McGee did it perfectly and combined minimalism with a little modern farmhouse, and we love it.
