An ideal match for chic, urban-inspired kitchens, the Houzer NVS-5100 Novus Undermount Kitchen Sink offers a single, oversized bowl paired with an innovative design. Its interchangeable sliding platform and drying board allow you to make good use of the space over your sink, while tight corners add modern appeal. And Houzer’s Super-Silence pad and MegaShield Insulation keep unwanted noise to a minimum.

Unique, Multifunction Design Adds Style to Modern Kitchens
The Novus’ unique, interchangeable dual-platform system allows you to instantly transform the “dead space” over your sink into additional workspace, a drying board, or a cutting board. This makes getting more out of smaller spaces easy, and it helps keep even the busiest kitchens running smoothly. And the sink’s single oversized bowl offers a 10-inch-deep work space that measures 30 by 13-7/8 inches, providing plenty of room for prepping complicated meals, soaking pots and pans, or hiding away dirty dishes. It also includes a rear-set drain with a brushed-satin finish and a 3-1/2-inch drain opening.
The sink’s undermount design fits a 36-inch sink base. This means that you never have to worry about cleaning or recaulking an above-the-counter lip, all while making it easy to sweep unwanted messes off your countertop and into the sink. Just as important, all this functionality doesn’t come at the cost of style. The Novus features tight 3/8-inch-radius corners at the bottom combined with sleek, zero-radius vertical corners for a look that’s clean, contemporary, and unique.

Premium-Grade Stainless Steel Offers Style and Durability
This 18-gauge Houzer sink is made from durable type-304 stainless steel, which includes an optimal mix of nickel and chrome for a finish that is resistant to corrosion, stains, and dents. Its surfaces are hygienic and scratch proof, and their durability ensures that preserving a like-new look requires minimal care and maintenance. Coupled with the fact that the versatile look of a stainless steel sink is an ideal match for high-end stainless steel appliances, this resilience can help you recoup the cost of a remodel if you later choose to sell your home.

Excellent Sound and Thermal Insulation
Like all Houzer sinks, this Novus Series sink features a Super-Silencer pad made of natural rubber, which helps reduce the noise of clattering dishes and running water. As a second defense against unnecessary kitchen noise, this sink also offers Houzer’s trademarked MegaShield Insulation over the standard sound pad. A complete wrapping made of rubber-pad insulation, this shield helps keep conversations comfortable while you rinse fruit or stack dishes.

In addition, this well-insulated design helps reduce condensation buildup on the bottom of the sink, preventing moisture damage in the base cabinet below your sink.

Certified for Dependability and Backed by a Lifetime Warranty
This dependable Houzer Novus single bowl sink complies with ASME A112.19.3-2000 and meets UPC/IAPMO (International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials) and CSA (Canadian Standard Association) certification standards.

For added peace of mind, this NVS-5100 Novus Undermount Kitchen Sink is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
