Farmhouse Kitchen Sinks

We love farmhouse sinks because they’re gorgeous to look at, they’re practical and durable, and they also serve as the perfect accent piece! You’ve got quite a few choices when it comes to the types of material that farmhouse sinks can be made from. Here are the most popular types of farmhouse sink materials:

  • Acrylic
  • Copper
  • Enamel over Cast Iron
  • Fiberglass
  • Fireclay (Clay and Glaze)
  • Granite
  • Porcelain
  • Slate
  • Soapstone
  • Stainless Steel
  • Vitreous China

 

Some pros and cons:
Pros: Farmhouse Sinks are gorgeous, ridiculously large, and can fit an insane amount of dishes. It’s the statement piece of the kitchen.

Cons: Because it’s so large, food can get caught up in the sides of the sink; therefore having a pull down faucet is necessary. Not a big deal though!

Before you decide on a farmhouse kitchen sink, you should do the following:

  • Take into consideration how you’ll use the sink — do you need a single-basin or double-basin sink?
  • What type of farmhouse sink fits the style of your kitchen and home best?
  • What farmhouse sink materials will suit your needs in the kitchen best?
  • Make sure you have enough space and support for a farmhouse sink — there’s nothing worse than bringing a new sink home and finding out it doesn’t fit!
