A Practical Sink
If you love country style kitchens, then you are also going to love the farmhouse kitchen sinks. This style are making a huge comeback, and are seen in many rustic kitchen designs. But even the more modern design is incorporating these styles of sinks simply because they make sense.
Practical - It is usually one big deep sink, with what they call an "apron" on the front, meaning the front material shows after completion. The reasoning for this style, is a big one for anyone who does a lot of work in the kitchen such as preserving, using large pots and pans, and just the convenience of being able to put things in the sink and out of the way.
Farms would always sport a large eating and food prep area and needed the room for large pots and pans and simply washing everything in the kitchen made it an important part of the room. Some people think of them as a "glorified laundry tub" but the designs have come a long way.
Those little stainless steel ones are not going to do the trick when it comes to the preserving pot and large pans. But at the same time, they are being built to look like the farmhouse country era, but with all the modern convenience and materials of today. You can usually add a compactor to this setup for example and state of the art faucet systems and water sprayers.
I have many friends that have changed to this style, simply because most of their cooking revolves around the sink, and they need to be able to spray vegetables and need the extra room.
You don't have to change your look to a country style or to get a country feel that will works well into your design. You can get these in different finishes that may work better for you, such as stainless steel, or even copper. Plus different widths and sizes to fit your space, but they all have one thing in common and that is that they are usually deeper than the average one.
Basically the big sink is back, it is good looking, practical, and no more puddles of water on the floor with the apron style sink. If you also install a sprayer style faucet system, then you can basically take your veggies from the back yard garden, and throw them in the sink and rinse them off. There is tons of room, these are usually a bit deeper than the standard sinks too.
With a shift in the mindset of many people starting kitchen remodeling and renovations, these farmhouse kitchen sinks are selling quite well. You can go and visit your local home improvement store and/or kitchen showrooms, and see just how many kitchen designs are now incorporating these sinks. Everything from the rustic country kitchen design to the modern and chic design. There is a farmhouse kitchen sink that will work for your design.
