Sinks, fabrics and a home office

I have a 10-year-old kitchen with a sink set in a granite top, but I can't find a replacement sink to fit the hole. Can you help?

Your measurements were unusual and we have had trouble finding a sink that size, however, after lots of investigation, we have three options. Plumbing Trade Supplies in Fakenham may be able help. Their number is 01328 856811 and the contact is Steve.

Secondly, there is a company in Hertfordshire called GEC Anderson, which can make bespoke sinks. It is an expensive alternative, but it solves your problem. Its number is 01442 826999 - speak to Melanie.

Finally, we have spoken to Premier Marble at Rackheath, Norwich, which would be able to come to your home to cut your granite worktop to a suitable size to fit a conventional sink. Cutting the granite would cause lots of dust, but again, it solves your problem.
