I am currently working with two clients who love the look of farmhouse sinks and faucets. While one client likes the more traditional look, the other client likes the more modern look. As I started to source the farmhouse sinks and faucets, I thought it would be neat to put together some of my findings.

While many people know these as farmhouse sinks, what most people really wish for are called apron sinks. When renovating and getting new cabinets, the cabinet needs to be able to fit an apron sink. This means the front of the cabinet needs to have an opening for the front, or apron, of the sink.
Here are a few of my favorite finds when I was sourcing farmhouse sinks:
This particular sink comes in many colors including this sexy Thunder Grey. The height of the apron (front) is 9 5/8″ and has a beautifully curved corner. And straight from the Kohler website:
Crafted from enameled cast iron, this sink resists chipping, cracking, or burning for years of beauty and reliable performance. A standard apron front makes it easy to install on 36-inch apron-front cabinetry. The Self-Trimming® design requires only a simple rough cut, overlapping the cabinet face for beautiful results.
Here is the same sink in a Double Basin. Image source for the image below is here.
There are also stainless steel options for apron sinks and this beauty definitely caught my eye!
This Strive kitchen sink offers professional style with easy-to-clean curved corners. Made of thick, premium quality 16-gauge stainless steel, the apron-front sink has a Self-Trimming design that requires only a simple rough cut, overlapping the cabinet face for beautiful results.
For a more traditional look, here is one that I spent significant time looking at for one of my clients.
This beauty only comes in two colors: white and parchment.
What I love about a bowed apron front sink is that it gives a nice feminine curve to a space.
I know there are many ways to do things, but I typically source the sink first and then source the faucet. Here are a couple of farmhouse faucets that caught my eye for my clients.
A bridge faucet is popular to pair with an apron sink. I love the look of this faucet as it works with both the traditional look as well as a more modern look. This particular faucet comes in Brushed or Polished Stainless Steel.
This faucet below is by far, one of my favorites! For me, it just screams farmhouse style AND it comes in so many finishes!
Single Handle Faucets
This faucet is one of my favorite single handle faucets. It has a pull-down spout with the DockNetik® magnetic docking system. There is also a 3-function sprayhead feature that includes Kohler’s Sweep® and BerrySoft® spray.
This faucet comes in 5 finishes that include English Bronze, English Gold, Polished Chrome, Polished Nickel, and Satin Nickel. These faucets are made in Great Britain using regionally sourced solid brass and ceramic components. What that really means is they are very well made!

Sourcing is one of the tasks that I love the most. While starting to source for my clients, I love seeing what options are available, what finishes are available and what the price points are. I always know that there is a way to get the look my client wishes for, within their budget!
