Everyone knows what they are and many people have pined for one when they first came back into popularity on the design front. Farmhouse sinks are gorgeous to look at, create a definite style in the kitchen and are oftentimes a statement piece.
Farmhouse sinks, also called apron-front, offer wide basins and exposed aprons. They are offered in lots of different materials and can be pricey. They require either a tile-in or undermount installation, which doesn’t work with some countertop materials, such as laminate. A lot of farmhouse sinks are also single-basin, which some customers don’t like.
I’ve gathered some interesting farmhouse sinks for your viewing enjoyment.
Stain Steel Mosaic Kitchen Sink from Linkasink . A gorgeous sink, don’t you think?
This weathered copper beauty also from Linkasink is also available in dark bronze here.
Natural Front Farmhouse Sink from Stone Forest. This would look great in a log cabin.
Some things to consider when purchasing a sink;
- How many bowls do you need?
- Is the sink deep enough for your pots?
- Do you need a prep sink?
- What is the care and maintenance of the material?
- Size, Shape, Material.. does it go with your decor/cabinets/appliances?
- Does it work with your faucets?
Shaws Original Casement Edge Front 1 1/2 Bowl Fireclay Apron Kitchen Sink here. Farmhouse sinks are usually single basin, so this double basin sink might be a good option for some.
The MHX710-36 from Franke Sinks. Stainless Steel beauty. Stainless steel can be high-maintenance though.
For Town by Michael S. Smith for Kallista can be found here. Made of solid marble, this is one of my favorites. Timeless and beautiful in any setting.
Have a great week everyone!
Life is a flow. It cannot stop, speed up, slow down or reverse. Things constantly move on. Because that is evolution. It is only by the leaving of one room that we can enter the next. And if we do not progress, we cannot grow. And if we do not grow we have no purpose. So we must accept, and make the best.
