What’s the deal with Farmhouse Sinks

[December 22, 2014 at 6:35 pm]  

Farmhouse sinks are all the rage these days in kitchen design, but what makes them so special? Here is a look inside these design beauties and why we love them.

Apparently there was a time when people had to haul water from lakes, rivers, and wells into their homes for all their water needs: washing dishes, boiling food, and cleaning their clothes. It’s hard to believe that there was a point in history when we didn’t have running water, but these early homes had dishpans and dry sinks, not connected to a plumbing system, so they needed to be filled and drained manually. This is where the farmhouse sink came into play. Also known as apron sinks, or apron front sinks, these large kitchen sinks were often found in rural homes of decades past. They were originally designed for comfort; for women who spent long, long hours at the sink, ergonomics were important – the apron front’s forward orientation eliminates the countertop that causes the user to lean forward and strain more than necessary.
