About farmhouse sink

Farm sinks are becoming increasingly popular in modern kitchens. A farmhouse sink also referred to as an apron sink, is a deep sink with a front-facing side. The front of a farmhouse kitchen sink acts like an apron when you stand and wash dishes. Not only are farm sinks functional but they also add charm and beauty to any kitchen space.

Most Popular Farm Sink Kitchen Designs

Farmhouse sinks come in several popular materials including stainless steel and copper. Black farmhouse sinks and white farmhouse sinks are basic colors that match almost any home decor. Copper farmhouse sinks offer a rustic look to compliment a traditional farm-style kitchen. Stainless steel farmhouse sinks are more contemporary and provide a clean, sharp look. Traditional farmhouse sinks measure between 20 and 60 inches in length, making them larger and easier to navigate than outdated double sinks. The average height of a farm sink is between 9 and 10 inches.

What You Need to Know About Installing a Farmhouse Sink

If you’re ready to upgrade your old kitchen sink to a farmhouse kitchen sink, you should know a few things first. Installing a farmhouse sink is a fairly simple DIY project. Farm sinks have a flange that sits evenly on the countertop just like a regular sink. It can also be installed on any type of counter surface and material.

The Benefits of a Farm Sink

In addition to clean lines and efficiency, there are other benefits of farmhouse kitchen sinks. Thanks to their larger size, apron sinks make it easy to wash larger items including baking sheets, pots, and pans. You can also soak multiple dishes at once, including dinner plates, casserole dishes, and bowls in a farm sink. Another benefit of a stainless steel farmhouse sink is that the front juts out from the supporting cabinetry. This design feature helps prevent cabinet damage. Any water or soap that flows out of the farm sink and over the lip will stream down the front and fall onto the floor instead of onto the countertop or wooden cabinets. Puddles of water left to pool here could cause damage and deterioration.
