For a long-time apron sinks have been popular in farm houses all over the world but are very much more these days being seen in modern homes as people are seeing their style benefits, as well as their practical points of it having more depth than a regular kitchen sink. This allows for more space to fit bigger pans and cooking utensils to be cleaned and generally more room to work with. It dates back to early farm houses when they had large families and ate hearty meals which created of course more pots to wash up, so the size of the sink was important back then.







What makes a farmhouse sink so special?

So farmhouse sinks have valued bonus of having a larger depth to them to wash more pots, they are also still making them today cause they are highly sought still , mainly because they can give a kitchen somewhat, a homely vibe to it. They are built to be highly durable, easy to clean as well as being very functional and reliable. On traditional farms it’s not just dishes that need to be cleaned in the sink, they are great for hand washing garments, watering plants, cleaning other household things that wouldn’t necessarily fit into a regular kitchen sink.

Why are they called apron sinks though?

Their name comes from the way the sink is fitted to the work top, an apron sink is fitted right on the edge of the surface top, so the front side of the sink is actually visible and would be up against the apron of the user when they were at the sink. Being in this style also allows for less spillages when filling up liquids I’ve always found and we’ve had one in the family for many years, they make the best sinks in my eyes.
