Trend Alert: Gorgeous Farmhouse Sinks In The Kitchen
We have seen the re-emergence of beautiful farmhouse kitchen sinks as a trend to watch this season. Making an appearance in both traditional and modern homes, these striking fixtures are a welcome addition in any kitchen. Adding style and function to the kitchen, this is definitely a trend to watch!
If you are planning a kitchen renovation, then you should certainly add a stylish farmhouse kitchen sink to your wish list. There’s something about these trending sinks that hearkens back to a simpler era. The utilitarian fixtures reflect a hard-working history as everything from canning workspaces to washbasins for dogs and small children. No wonder they’ve long been an iconic element in traditional-style kitchens. They’re becoming increasingly popular in contemporary spaces, too, thanks to fresh twists on colours and materials and easier installation options.
Beauty meets function in a farmhouse kitchen sink. Bigger than most conventional sinks, a farmhouse kitchen sink is large enough to accommodate oversized cookware and cookie sheets, and their distinctive form creates a stunning focal point in the kitchen.
The Whitehaven Hayridge sink takes the apron-front sink in a decidedly artful direction, with its distinctive pattern of horizontal ridges that adds a tactile quality.
Along with the kitchen, the farmhouse sink has undergone some evolutionary changes of its own. Fresh shapes, new colours and decorative designs coordinate with an unprecedented array of styles.
When it comes to materials, enamelled cast iron remains popular for its beauty, strength and durability. KOHLER enamelled cast iron sinks are guaranteed not to chip, crack or burn–and they’re available in an expanded range of colour, pattern and shape options. To complement modern kitchens, Vault stainless steel sinks create a look that cleverly straddles the traditional apron-front and contemporary stainless designs.
Another innovation: Kohler’s easy-to-install Self-Trimming® design, available on the Whitehaven and Vault kitchen sinks, makes the iconic apron-front more accessible to homeowners than ever before.
The idea of including a farmhouse-style sink in a modern space may seem odd at first. But thanks to their clean lines and iconic forms, these classic sinks work beautifully in both traditional and contemporary kitchens.
