Farmhouse Sink
Farmhouse Sink

Farmhouse sinks were originally designed to sit slightly to the front of the surrounding cabinets, so that any water flowing down the front of the sink would run to the floor instead of landing on and damaging the cabinets. This is how farmhouse sinks still are typically installed in a kitchen.

Size
Size

The size of each sink is based primarily on the size of the sink base cabinet width and depth. Is the cabinet 24" wide? 36" wide? Narrower? Wider? Based on the cabinet dimension the sink size is then determined. The sink size is also relative to the type of mounting for the sink, undermount or surface mount.

Stainless Steel Sink

Stainless steel is an obvious choice for a kitchen sink because it cleans up quickly and has a great pro look. But once you get past the key design questions—one bowl or two, undermount or overmount—you want to base your buying decision on other, less obvious factors that affect quality and value.
