What are the top considerations for an apron sink?
So, what are the key things to consider before you choose a farmhouse or apron sink? Well, there are several things to bear in mind, including:
- The material of the sink
- A single or double bowl sink
- Counter top adjustment
Different material options for apron sinks
When it comes to the apron sink, most people jump straight to the idea of a porcelain sink. And this can be incredibly attractive. But it also means that the inside of your sink can become stained, or even chipped. In addition, in a porcelain sink your dishes might smash because of the increased depth of any apron sink. Instead, you could choose a solid surface material, stainless steel or polished marble. Each of these will require different levels of maintenance, but still just as attractive.
Do you need a single or double bowl apron sink?
Apron sinks are available in both a single and a double bowl option. So consider the way you use your kitchen, and your individual needs and requirements, before you decide on one option or the other.
Your counter tops may need adjusting
If you want to install an apron sink into your current kitchen, you will need to consider having your counter tops adjusted. This is because farmhouse sinks are wider and deeper than standard sinks, your counter tops, and the cabinets below, will need to be adjusted to make room.
