Farmhouse Sinks

A post called Farmhouse Sink from December ’10 is one of the top visited posts on this blog, every day. People sure are interested in the Rohl/Shaw clay apron sinks according to the stats. I started this blog to record and share pictures and ideas for our India apartment and have amassed a huge file of farmhouse sinks!

Here are some more farmhouse or apron sinks … different materials, different colors, different placement, different sizes …

How often do you see dark farmhouse sinks? Very elegant, this one, found at Velvet and Linen:

Via Brown Dress with White Dots Tumblr (I don’t know original source?):


Via Two Maisons — this kitchen is amazing. Visit this link, you will be treated to an elegant country kitchen with planks used to age rounds of cheese for the cabinets. This resourceful kitchen mixes Ikea with an 18th century armoire. This kitchen design is very much influencing me for our India apartment. And here is the stone sink:

Via Kitchens magazine:

Via DecorPad, of course a farmhouse sink makes sense in a laundry room:

Also via DecorPad, this sink is ready for its close-up shot. Note the curved cut to the cabinets for close-fitting installation:

Another winner from DecorPad. I like the contrast of white and black:

Found at Remodelista, this sink is elevated above the counter:

Believe it or not, I did not dump my whole farmhouse sink inspiration file into this post. There are a bazillion pretty pictures of kitchens with white sinks. I hope this post revealed different materials, styles and color combinations for you. What is your favorite?

As far as our farmhouse sink choice … a-ha … that will have to wait for the Big Reveal post!

  1. These definitely beat the stainless steel ones in India. Btw Deb- These stone apron sinks were the norm in India during my childhood. Everybody then ‘upgraded’ to the stainless steel one :)

    1. Hi Divya! It’s great to hear from you. Really, they were the norm?!? I wonder if I can locate an old one there. We’ll be visiting the antique warehouses because we want to re-use old things rather than have new made. My husband is in Chennai right now struggling with finishing this place. We have not even started the kitchen yet. He says no one he knows there has seen these sinks and he wonders about the difficulties of getting it installed, as we’re finding even basic requests are difficult to coordinate. Maybe he should show this post to amma and appa! They may remember these sinks from their childhoods! We were thinking we’d have to import a sink. So THANK YOU for telling me this, this might open some possibilities there!
