When the kitchen renovation goal is rustic chic, a farmhouse sink is the only way to go. Also known as apron sinks, they create a stylish look with an exposed bowl-front while providing all the benefits of a hardworking deep basin. Choosing a farmhouse sink elevates your washing station from purely functional to a charming statement piece. Opt for an eye-catching and classic white, a stainless steel apron sink, or even a colorful one to spruce up your kitchen countertop. Adding a skirt is another easy way to call focus to your dapper apron sink. Whether you're a Kohler gal or House of Rohl is more up your alley, choose your farmhouse sink wisely as a classy and practical addition to your kitchen. Make sure to take stock of your countertops, cabinetry, and decor to choose a cohesive farmhouse sink that will uplift the charm of the entire space.
