Apron sinks, or farmhouse sinks, or farmers sinks, are sinks where the front panel remains exposed in the kitchen and sticks out - often with decorative curves and/or embedded designs on the front surface. Apron sinks and farmhouse sinks are typically thick and bulky, and made of heavy fireclay, copper or stone. They are particularly durable under heavy use and add a unique, impressive look to the kitchen.Fireclay is the most popular apron sink/farmhouse sink material; a heavy clay finished in exceptionally high heat.
Apron sinks evoke the well-built country sinks of yore, and work particularly well in similarly styledtraditional kitchens. However, apron sinks can work perfectly with a wide variety of transitional and contemporary/modern kitchen designs as well. Most apron sinks and farmhouse sinks are white or biscuit (off white), but the more out-of-the-box amongst us can choose from various strong, even dark,colors as well.
This category is a really bold way to go, but it won’t bust your budget or other kitchen plans. Give it a try!
