In our country, farmhouse-style kitchen sinks are still a rarity. But in the USA they are very popular and widespread. Our advice site will tell and show you what features such sinks differ in, how they look in the interior of the kitchen.
Farmhouse-style sinks are recognizable at first sight. They cannot be confused with other options for such plumbing. Their main differences:
- Increased depth.
- Always square or rectangular.
- Front side that protrudes from the bottom row of kitchen cabinets and becomes a noticeable element of interior decoration.
Outwardly, the sinks in the “farmhouse” style are similar to the auxiliary sinks, which the portal wrote about in detail. However, they are more attractive, somewhat rustic, yes, but not industrial, perfectly fitting into the interior of kitchens decorated in different interior styles..
Farmhouse sinks with two bowls are rare. Such sinks are already distinguished by their outstanding dimensions and depth, allowing both high pots to be filled and dishes to be folded during the day. Therefore, most often the second bowl is simply not needed, but such models can also be found..
It is necessary to plan the installation of a “farm” sink at the stage of ordering a kitchen set. Such a sink needs a place not only in the countertop, but also on the facade of the lower cabinet. However, you can make a cutout of the desired size if it is decided to insert the sink into the existing kitchen furniture..
Farmhouse sinks are made from a variety of materials – traditional stainless steel, copper, artificial acrylic stone, sanitary ware and sanitary porcelain, both for bathrooms, and even concrete. In any case, the sinks are quite massive. For decoration, the front side, which will become part of the facade of the kitchen set, is decorated in different ways. Although there are simple models with a flat protruding side.
Certainly, “farm” sinks look best in rustic, country, Provence and rustic kitchens. However, for a modern kitchen, it is quite possible to choose a model, for example, made of metal, which will fit organically into such an interior..
Deep, roomy, thick-walled, strong and durable farmhouse sinks are very easy to use and beautiful in their own way. The choice in Russian stores, we admit, is not so great, but you can still find similar models.
