There’s something about apron-front sinks that hearkens back to a simpler era. These utilitarian fixtures reflect a hard-working history as everything from canning work spaces to washbasins for dogs and small children. No wonder they’ve long been an iconic element in traditional-style kitchens. They’re becoming increasingly popular in contemporary spaces, too, thanks to fresh twists on colors and materials and easier installation options.
The term farmhouse kitchen sink tends to be a little misleading. This type of sink is not necessarily linked to farmhouses, cottages and barns. But it is a very specific type. There are several characteristics that define it. Another characteristic of farmhouse kitchen sinks is the fact that they don’t usually come with holes for the faucets to be fitted into. This meant that the faucet has to be either installed on the wall or though the cabinetry. This usually means you need to have custom cabinets made specifically for this type of sink. However, it also means that, if the sink gets damaged and needs to be replaced, you can just take it out and put it a new one. It’s a very simple process.
