The apron kitchen sinks, also known as farmhouse sinks, are not just stylish but also have a practical past. They have a distinct front-facing side.
Their deep basin allowed for plenty of dishwashing when there was no such thing as a dishwasher.
- What is an apron sink
Basically, it’s a sink that is built-in the counter top and front edge exposed. Which makes it more important than ever to have a nice looking apron sink as it’s a visual part of the design.
- What is the difference between a farm sink and an apron sink?
The difference between an apron sink and a traditional kitchen sink is how the sink sits on top of the countertop or vanity. An apron sink is part of the facing for your countertop. It will slide in and over your countertop, so the front of the sink will be exposed once it is installed.
- Are all apron sinks undermount?
No. You can have an apron sink mounted on the top of the countertop. When the sink and countertop are made from the same material you can blend it and fully intergrate the sink in the countertop.
- What material are apron sinks made of?
You can have an apron sink made of fireclay, stainless steel, copper, cast iron, composite granite, concrete, stone and even wood.
- Can I have apron sink in a modern styled kitchen?
Yes, but it’s not very popular. If you can match the apron sink with the kitchen design, go for it.
