Apron-front sinks, aka farmhouse sinks, have been a favorite among homeowners for many years. Revered for its deep capacity, and charming style, these beauties were mostly installed in traditional and cottage style kitchens. In the traditional home, the white or biscuit colored fireclay sink was usually the choice made, if the homeowner wanted an apron front sink. Eventually, the sink was modernized by keeping the style, but changing the material to stainless steel and making the lines to be more contemporary. Now they can be found in modern and contemporary abodes.
In perusing the latest design magazines and Houzz posts, I have noticed that the apron front sink is again expanding its available colors and and materials. The traditional fireclay sink is now available in a large variety of colors, including matte black and sapphire blue. In terms of materials, copper, hammered copper, concrete, cast iron and soap stone are now all available options in an apron front sink. Additionally, I have seen variations in design of the front of the sink. Ribbing, fluting, grooves, and frame details are now all options as well. If you are interested in installing an apron front sink in your kitchen, there are many varieties to choose from.
