Farmhouse Sink: The Kitchen Icon

Icon (ahy-con), a person or thing that is revered or idolized. Yes, that’s what has happened to the farmhouse sink. It’s risen to the status of an icon in kitchens across America. No longer is it relegated to the farmhouse kitchen; you’ll now find it in traditional and modern kitchens too. Although kitchen cabinet styles may change over the years, the farmhouse – or apron – sink, seems here to stay for years to come.

Farmhouse Sink. A variety of examples for your next kitchen project.I’ve rounded up some of my favorite examples of this beautiful and functional kitchen mainstay.

Not all farmhouse sinks take the form of an apron sink. This double bowl enamel sink is one of my favorites.

Our first home had a sink like this one and I loved it!  When we bought the house the sink had a skirt around the bottom. I needed more storage and hired a carpenter to customize a cupboard underneath. He rounded the edges just like this one.

Here’s another twist on the farmhouse sink. This one doesn’t have a flat front and has a slightly elevated back. I love the bead board on the ends of the cabinets (my house has the same thing) and the simple Shaker style door fronts.

Speaking of windows, who needs upper cabinets when you can enjoy a row of windows like this instead?  You almost don’t notice the gorgeous marble counter top and double bowl farmhouse sink.

  1. Beautiful farmhouse sink inspiration….for some reason was unable to pin anything…will try again…
    I have a farmhouse sink and it is definitely the best investment in my kitchen that I made…I love it and will never have
    anything else….I love the vintage sink and would love to have one like that in my laundry room!

  2. I love the last kitchen. I am sure it is meant to be mine. But I sure do like the traditional farm sinks. I grew up with them.

  3. I love them all! Have you ever seen a farmhouse sink in a corner? I’m looking at house plans, and some of them have a corner window and sink. I wonder if it would work there.

  4. An old farmhouse sink with an integrated backsplash (like one you had in your first home) was the biggest wish list item for our farmhouse. We finally found a 1920s apron version with legs, and we can’t wait to get it in our kitchen!

  5. Love 3 and 4! I had a stainless steel farmhouse sink in my last home. I didn’t like it because it wasn’t divided. It made some kitchen situations difficult if two of us were working in the kitchen.

  6. Love all the farmhouse sinks….I have a very small kitchen and I did remodel a few years ago. I went with a stainless steel farmhouse style sink and it pops against the white cabinets and marble countertops….I never regretted going with stainless…..

  7. Every one of these sinks/kitchen areas are gorgeous. It’s a shame that most homes have the same old, boring, uninspired sinks and sink areas. (Like mine haha). I did notice that most of these sinks were under AMAZING windows!!!
