Dishing Out Style: Classic Apron Front Sinks Make a Splash in Kitchen Remodeling
Originally a staple of farmhouse kitchens, apron front sinks have recently enjoyed an upsurge in popularity for kitchen remodeling projects of all styles. Our professional design team has created kitchens with apron front sinks as a central feature in whole home remodels with Modern, Cape Cod Coastal and Transitional design aesthetics. Apron front sinks are uniquely versatile because of their timeless simplicity. Their clean lines and classic form work well in many kitchen remodeling projects.
Because they were originally designed for busy farmhouse mealtimes when no dishwashers or other convenient appliances were available, apron front sinks are built for sturdiness and durability. They are large enough to accommodate sizable pots and pans and their extra deep and roomy bowl means less splashing while you work at the sink, with less puddles on surrounding surfaces. Their placement a little further forward than typical modern sinks makes for more comfortable ergonomics with less stress and strain.
An apron front sink is an iconic design that works as a centerpiece in your kitchen. Rather than blending into the background, this archetypal sink makes a bold statement about the value of classic design. The apron front sinks made today have evolved to encompass new materials and colors. Enameled cast iron and fireclay are popular for their appearance and strength, while stainless steel has emerged as a modern interpretation of the classic design. The elements that remain unchanged are the simple, clean lines that make an apron front sink work as well in a contemporary environment as it does in a traditional one.
Choosing a sink is just one element of a kitchen remodeling project. When you work with a unified team of architects, designers and construction professionals, you receive the expertise and guidance you need to make design choices that work best for your lifestyle today.
