If you've been looking at ways to update your kitchen (or just dreaming about renovating that rental kitchen) one trend you've probably seen a lot of is the farmhouse sink. Whether it's because they are big, easy to clean, or just an alternative to top-mounted sinks, we're betting this trend is here to stay.
Ready to update? Here are some styles to consider.
Also called "apron front sinks," you'll most traditionally find this style in white porcelain. Yes, there might be some decorative details on the front, but a basic rounded edge white sink is going to be most common. These style sinks definitely fit with several different decor styles, and can handle lots of color either on the cabinets or countertops that surround them.
The second most common material is stainless steel. Just like your appliances the farmhouse sink has gotten a sleek makeover. These sinks feel like the best of both worlds—they are large and can hold a lot of produce or dishes while being sturdy and easy to clean just like a traditional top-mounted sink.
Copper, Bamboo, & Concrete
If you want to go for something really bold, you can find apron front sinks made out of copper, concrete, and even bamboo. The copper sinks, which frequently have a hammered texture, definitely evoke a rustic, vintage vibe, while the concrete sinks evoke an industrial feel, and the bamboo versions bring some natural warmth to the kitchen.
