Farmhouse Sinks

April 26th, 2009 § 4 Comments

Apron front sinks continue to maintain their popularity. Believe it or not, there are so many styles and features to choose from for your farmhouse sink from cast iron, fire clay to copper to stainless steel, depth of bowls, single, double, flushmount, undermount, decks, no decks, angled front, straight front, decorative front, smooth front and so on. I will point you in the direction of a website that maintains a wonderful database of all your farmhouse options: Luxury Home Products has an article “What you need to know about apron front farm sinks!” that is indispensable reading before you buy. They were very clever to include a user height chart for selecting the sink depth. If you don’t consider the sink depth now, you will end up with a backache later. If you can’t find the sink you were looking for, email them and they will research it for you.

Think copper needs too much tlc for your taste? Think again. Check out this YouTube Video.
