Our BLANCO farmhouse style sinks, also known as apron front sinks, add a flair of countryside charm to any kitchen design. The front of the sink slightly protrudes from your countertop, providing depth and dimension. And BLANCO's selection of farmhouse sinks range in durable stainless steel, easy-to-clean fireclay and our patented SILGRANIT® material!
BLANCO Farmhouse Sinks
Farmhouse sinks combine apron front design and easy function for an element of country style in the kitchen.
What is a farmhouse sink?
Farmhouse sinks have been around for decades and are designed with a classic, rustic style by allowing the front of the sink to stay exposed, keeping the kitchen sink a central component of your style. These types of sinks have a unique installation process that requires a custom countertop and cabinet cut which allows the front-facing portion to remain bare and slightly protruding. A farmhouse sink breaks from the tradition of hiding the bowl by highlighting the beauty of its shape and color, and are offered in many material options and styles, ranging from country kitchen to transitional to contemporary.
Why choose a farmhouse sink?
The sink is the hardest working and most often used appliance in the kitchen. Owners of farmhouse sinks appreciate the large work area inside the sink that allows them to perform the many tasks of meal preparation and clean up. Additionally, the depth of farmhouse sinks allows for ample space of washing larger items, such as heavy pots and baking sheets. Although farmhouse sinks have very traditional roots, they have evolved over time to keep up with modern kitchen trends. In fact, BLANCO specializes in providing farmhouse sink accessories for purchase, such as the farmhouse sink with a cutting board that positions itself as the perfect workspace when countertop space is limited.
How to choose the right farmhouse sink color
Farmhouse sinks are meant to be seen, and they are an important design element in any kitchen remodel. The color choice of the farmhouse sink is important because this sink will anchor the design of the entire kitchen space. The right sink color is one that works well with the cabinets, the countertop and the wall paint or tile. BLANCO offers farmhouse sinks in all three of our offered materials: stainless steel, fireclay, and our patented SILGRANIT®. With that in mind, you can figure out the perfect sink color to match your needs. The cool, silver-gray surface of a stainless steel farmhouse sink is perfect for utilitarian and modern designed kitchens, while our durable fireclay material offers both white and biscuit colors to create the perfect country style. And as always with our SILGRANIT granite composite kitchen sinks, you can choose from our eight popular color options: white, metallic gray, cinder, biscuit, truffle, anthracite, biscotti and cafe brown.
