How to Choose The Best Farmhouse Kitchen Sink

The market for farmhouse kitchen sinks is pretty crowded right now, so the choices can be overwhelming for many shoppers unless you know exactly what you want out of a kitchen sink. A popular kitchen sink option that can narrow down these choices is the farmhouse kitchen sink.

10 Easy Pieces: Copper Kitchen Sinks

There is something inherently romantic about a copper kitchen sink. You can imagine washing dishes at the window of your French farmhouse kitchen and watching the copper patina as generations are born and grow old. It’s one of the few remodel investments that is rustic yet luxurious (quality copper isn’t easy on the budget). If you’re able to unearth a vintage copper sink, good on you, but for those in the market, here are our favorites—both under-mount and apron-front models. Above: A copper...

Remodeling 101: The Cult of the Concrete Sink

Concrete gets a bad rap: rough, clunky, cold, best suited for brutalist interiors. But lately we’ve spotted appealing sinks made of concrete in all kinds of spaces, from a snug house on an island in Maine to an indoor-outdoor escape, available for rent, in Mexico. As it turns out, the concrete sink is coming into its own as one of the most versatile sinks we’ve seen, aesthetically. But is it practical? We asked designer Fu-Tung Cheng of Berkeley-based Cheng Design (who literally wrote the book o...

Remodeling 101: Single-Bowl Vs. Double-Bowl Sinks in the Kitchen

The burning question, for people (like us) who spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about kitchen sinks: Is the double-bowl sink still relevant? The double-bowl (or divided) sink was popular before the advent of the dishwasher, when its two compartments served as an easy system for washing dishes: soapy water and dirty dishes in one bowl, clean water for rinsing in the other. But in the age of the automated dishwasher, are there any benefits to having a double-bowl sink? In this installme...

Remodeling 101: Soapstone Sinks

A soapstone sink makes a statement in the kitchen or in the bath. This natural stone has been used since the 1800s to make sinks and countertops, most notably in laboratories because of its unique properties—it’s not affected by chemicals, acids, or temperature. We talked with Glenn Bowman, the owner of Vermont Soapstone, to learn some of the ins and outs of soapstone sinks. The company, based in Perkinsville, VT, dates back to 1856; Bowman has been there for 32 years, working with craftsmen who...

10 Easy Pieces: White Kitchen Farmhouse Sinks

When it comes to kitchen sinks, we’re admittedly opinionated: We favor deep, single-bowl models, capable of holding a dinner party’s worth of dishes and accommodating oversize pots. Here is a roundup of our favorite farmhouse sinks, including both apron-front and undermount styles. We’ve focused on white ceramic sinks (except for the last, which is cast iron), but many of those featured here are available in various widths and finishes.
