Today, Tomorrow, Forever. At Elkay, we take pride in serving both residential and commercial customers.
For the home, you’ll find nonporous quartz sinks that help prevent the spread of bacteria and sinks featuring our exclusive, edgeless drain that makes for a more hygienic sink. For commercial applications, we have copper sinks that kill bacteria and touchless bottle filling stations with lead-reducing filters.
Fueled by culinary curiosity and our burning need for easy solutions and good aesthetics, kitchen design has come a long way since Elkay started in 1920. We’ve been family owned and committed to innovation for a century and counting!

The Dual-Bowl Sink
Elkay releases its dual-bowl sink dubbed the Hitchcock, a top-of-the-line washbasin made by hand that was offered in either German nickel and silver (for $700) or copper (for $900).
The Cocktail Center
At a time when happy hour’s popularity hit new highs, Elkay makes it even more fabulous with its Cocktail Center, a blending, mixing and washing station with a built-in sink. Frank Sinatra would definitely approve.
The Lustertone Sink
Elkay debuts its Lustertone line of sinks with an exclusive handcrafted finish that features the same linear grain found in high-end stainless steel appliances. A custom-built Lustertone sink is commissioned for the Farnsworth house in Plano, Ill., designed by Mies van der Rohe.
The Under-Sink Water Purifier
Nobody wants chlorine, sediment or unexpected scents in their drinking water. It’s Elkay to the rescue with a new “quick change” under-sink water purifier. The tagline? “Enjoy bottled-water quality.”
The Perfect Drain®
Elkay introduces the edgeless design of Perfect Drain®, which gives sinks a seamless look and feel. This innovation eliminates the collar around the drain, which keeps the sink cleaner and gives food one place to go: down the drain.
The Colorful Quartz Sinks
Who says a sink has to be stainless steel or porcelain? Elkay’s colorful quartz sinks quickly become beloved by adventurous designers for showstopping hues such as Maraschino, Bisque and Mocha.
The ezH2O® Liv™ Built-in Filtered Water Dispenser
With our bottle filling stations increasingly common in offices, gyms, airports and schools, Elkay decides to bring that same convenience and quality to the home. The ezH2O® Liv™ is the first built-in filtered water dispenser engineered for the home. It’s designed to look beyond the kitchen and seamlessly fit any space water is needed.
