The reminiscence of the times when people would use a sink for washing dishes, clothes and sometimes babies, a farmhouse sink represents timeless charm, comfort and beauty of old-world décor. Now, you can have your custom-made, copper apron sink that fit your kitchen style and size. With the outstanding performance and distinctive look of a farmhouse copper sink, you will not want to use your dishwasher anymore!
Farmhouse copper kitchen sinks are a marvellous way to reflect personal style and create a bold statement in neutral, monochromatic kitchens. They are a great fit in a rustic environment, but many designers incorporate them as well in contemporary decors to bring warmer tones and antique-looking contrast. In that case, you can choose a sleek and simple model that will offer a slightly more contemporary feeling. Independently of their style, farmhouse, kitchen sinks offer hassle-free installation, effortless care, and a lifetime warranty. Therefore, if a large, deep sink basin works best for your cooking and dishwashing style, an apron-front sink could be the most practical choice for you, no matter your home decor style. However, there are some additional factors to consider. As with the majority of types of sinks, farmhouse copper sinks come in both single- and double-bowl designs. The decision between those two options would be based on family habits and daily activity in the kitchen. We recommend our clients t take into consideration the way they cook and dish wash. You should ask yourself a question if you do a lot of food prep in your sink? A large single-bowl sink could be the right choice. Do you like to start washing the dishes while dinner is cooking? A copper double-basin sink that lets you wash dishes on one side without disturbing the rinsed salad greens on the other side could be for you. Additionally, one of the compartment might be bigger than the other so you can have two bowls but still plenty of space for your dishes. For a coherent look, add copper hardware such as pull-knobs and other kitchen accessories to emphasize this metallic look
In the past handmade, farmhouse copper sinks were not the usual choice for kitchens and bathrooms. The biggest fear among the homeowners was that the sink will oxidize with the use. However, it is just a misunderstanding. Although contact with minerals found in water can indeed cause changes in the original copper color, periodical maintenance doesn't let that happen. Copper has a natural way of protecting itself from that process by creating a natural patina. On the other side, if what you actually like is this oxidized effect, we can fabricate greenish patina copper sinks if you wish. There would be extra cost because of treatment to achieve a permanent effect.
