The Farmhouse sink, otherwise known as an apron-front sink is a great addition to any kitchen or space where a sink is needed. These often plain looking fixtures reflect a long history of utilitarian purposes, from being used as a dog wash basin to a canning workspace.
Although most people consider these sinks for traditional interior design, many bold and adventurous designers have started using them in modern settings — with dramatic results. Furthermore, manufacturers are beginning to expand on the design of these classic sinks by adding textures and patterns to the front apron and expanding color and material choices.
The Farmhouse sink is no longer the cornerstone of a traditionally designed kitchen. With so many options available, don’t be afraid to install one in your home — It will make a welcome — and very practical — addition.
