Farmhouse sinks, also called apron front sinks, have become a major design trend for homeowners undergoing kitchen renovations in the Mid-Atlantic. Whether you live in Baltimore, Maryland or Wilmington, Delaware, you may have noticed your neighbors gushing over the latest designs. But while popular, it doesn’t mean this style sink is the right fit for every home.
Is a farmhouse sink a good addition to your kitchen? Let us help you decide.
Pros and Cons of the Apron Front Sink
The apron front sink isn’t just for the farm. It’s also ideal in all types of kitchens from Delaware to Pennsylvania to New Jersey to Maryland. And with a deep, rectangular basin and an exposed front, it is especially appealing in the traditional country style kitchen.
Benefits of installing a farmhouse sink in your kitchen include:
- Unique style that makes an artistic statement
- Numerous material options – porcelain, soapstone, stainless steel, copper, cast iron, and more
- Easy accessibility with a narrower front edge
- Easy maintenance with no gap between the countertop sink, making cleanup a breeze
- Extreme durability to last you many years
Consider as well that the unique style that makes a farmhouse sink so perfect for some kitchens is also the reason it doesn’t work in others. Apron sinks have a somewhat unusual design that may not match the décor of your existing space (though this isn’t as much of a factor if you are remodeling the entire room). The farmhouse sink also tends to be more expensive than traditional sinks and can be heavy, requiring custom cabinetry to provide the right level of support. At Bath, Kitchen and Tile Center, we can design and install custom cabinets and countertops that will perfectly complement your new sink design.
