Kitchen sinks including apron front farmhouse kitchen sinks, small utility and kitchen prep sinks, and double and single bowl drop-in sinks. Choose from kitchen sinks made of traditional china, vintage porcelain coated cast iron, durable fireclay and rustic copper.
The kitchen sink has evolved from a purely utilitarian fixture to a focal point of kitchen design. The choice of a kitchen sink should not only meet the daily needs of today's homeowner but also possess aesthetics complementary to the kitchen's theme. Cast iron and fireclay apron front farmhouse kitchen sinks are popular choices for vintage themed kitchens. Copper kitchen sinks, including copper apron front sinks, complement rustic kitchens as well as traditional style kitchens. Small single-bowl copper sinks are a stylish choice as prep sinks for kitchen islands, multipurpose sinks for butler pantries, or bar sinks for entertainment rooms.
Beyond mere looks, kitchen sink selection should take into consideration how well the sink's design is suited for its intended use. For example, kitchen sinks that will be used heavily should have durable exteriors that are maintained with little effort. Two bowl kitchen sinks are also desirable if dish washing and drying is often done by hand. Three bowl kitchen sinks are often preferred when more effort is devoted to food preparation.
