Reclaimed Belfast sinks, also known as Butler sinks, are a popular choice for adding a touch of vintage charm to kitchens and utility rooms. In the 19th century, the Belfast area of Northern Ireland gave birth to these sinks, originally designed for heavy-duty use in industrial and commercial settings. However, due to their practicality and durability, they became widely embraced in domestic households.

Crafted from high-quality fireclay, a ceramic material fired at high temperatures, reclaimed Belfast sinks boast exceptional durability and resilience. Moreover, this process gives the sink its characteristic white, glossy finish and makes it resistant to stains, scratches, and heat. The sinks typically have a deep, rectangular shape with straight sides and a slightly sloping base to facilitate water drainage.

One of the distinctive features of a reclaimed Belfast sink is its large size. Moreover, with their deeper and wider dimensions compared to standard kitchen sinks, these sinks provide ample space for effectively washing dishes and utensils. Additionally, their generous capacity proves particularly advantageous for households that have to handle a significant volume of washing up.

As the name suggests, reclaimed Belfast sinks are salvaged or sourced from older buildings or renovation projects. This gives them a unique, weathered appearance and a sense of history. In addition, reclaimed sinks may show signs of wear like chips or discoloration, enhancing their character and appeal.

Why choose a Belfast sink?

Integrate reclaimed Belfast sinks seamlessly into various kitchen styles, ranging from traditional farmhouse designs to modern and contemporary settings. They work well with a wide range of countertop materials, including wood, stone, and solid surface materials. Moreover, many homeowners choose to pair these sinks with traditional-style faucets and complementary accessories to enhance the vintage aesthetic.

Reclaimed Belfast sinks have versatile potential beyond kitchens and utility rooms, allowing for creative repurposing.

Here are a few examples:

Garden Planters

The large size and deep basin of a reclaimed Belfast sink make it ideal for repurposing as a garden planter. Fill it with soil, plant flowers, herbs, or small shrubs, creating a unique focal point in your garden or outdoor space. Alternatively, with some patience and ingenuity, convert a sink into intriguing water features.

Outdoor Wash Station

If you have an outdoor workspace or garden shed, a reclaimed Belfast sink can serve as a convenient wash station. Connect it to a water source for convenient cleaning of tools, pots, and gardening equipment, eliminating the need for indoor trips. Alternatively, a large Belfast sink makes a great boot wash.


For those seeking a distinctive and vintage look in their bathroom, a reclaimed Belfast sink can be transformed into a bathroom vanity. Paired with a suitable countertop and a vanity unit, it creates a charming and functional centerpiece for your bathroom. Alternatively, Belfast sinks can be used in laundry rooms as utility sinks. Ideal for laundry tasks: pre-soaking, handwashing delicate items, and bathing pets, thanks to their large capacity and sturdy construction.

Outdoor Bar or Kitchen

Incorporate a reclaimed Belfast sink into your outdoor bar or kitchen design for a functional and stylish addition. Use it to wash hands, rinse glasses, or prep food, adding vintage flair to your outdoor space. Additionally, a Belfast sink makes a sturdy ice bath for summer drinks.

Creative DIY Projects

Unleash your creativity with reclaimed Belfast sinks, repurposing them for unique DIY projects. Transform them into water features, stylish ice buckets, custom workstations, or potting benches.
