Farmhouse sink or regular under-mount sink?

Farmhouse (or Apron-Front) sinks are becoming very popular. So what is better - Farmhouse sink or regular under-mount sink?

Well that's really a matter of personal preference and cost.

A regular under-mount sink will accentuate and compliment your cabinets and countertop, while a Farmhouse sink will become a focal point in your kitchen.

Like regular under-mount sinks, Farmhouse sinks come in a variety of materials, styles and sizes.  Farmhouse sinks can be made out of fireclay or porcelain, copper, stainless steel, enameled cast iron, marble and more.  They are often deeper and wider than traditional under-mount sinks.  They rarely have a divider (but some do) making it easier to wash large items and you don't have to worry about water splashing all over !

If you are thinking of putting a Farmhouse sink in your kitchen some advanced planning is needed.  A Farmhouse sink can be very large and very heavy.  You may need to do some carpentry and plumbing work if you are planning on keeping your current cabinets or you may need to purchase a special size cabinet if buying new to accommodate your Farmhouse sink. Your countertop will need to be replaced - at least around your sink area due to the install.  Also, if you plan on having a garbage disposal, you will need to purchase an extended flange because most Farmhouse sinks are extra thick adding a little extra cost to your project.

Whichever style sink you choose, I'm sure it will be a beautiful part of your new kitchen !
