Farm Kitchen Sink


I grew up on a farm in the 40's, and one of the most pleasant things in our lives was sitting around the kitchen, which was the center of the household. Mom was an excellent cook, and I remember well the old farm kitchen sink, which was always a focal point.

Currently there are three primary types of kitchen sinks: self-rimming, under mount, and farm. Self-rimming, or drop-in sinks, sit on top of the counter top. This is the least attractive sink option, and the least practical, as the countertops cannot be wiped off directly into the sink. The rim prevents this from happening smoothly. Food particles get stuck between the sink and the counter top and breed bacteria and mold, which can, in turn attract pests.

Farm sinks are the most pleasing of all kitchen sinks. My mother had a one piece sink with high back that was a central part of the kitchen. She could do her canning, have room for supplies, and yet not need a great deal of counter space in the kitchen to hold other items. We had the sink, stove, and the kitchen table in our farm home. It was all we needed. Farm sinks are an entire sink unit which intentionally breaks the flow of the counter top as an appliance would. They have a finished front wall which leads directly up and over into the basin of the sink. Farm sinks are made of many materials. but the most attractive ones are made of granite, marble, or travertine. The rock travertine is a natural chemical precipitate of carbonate minerals; typically aragonite, but often recrystallized to or primary calcite; which is deposited from the water of mineral springs (especially hot springs) or streams saturated with calcium carbonate. When pure, travertine is white, but often is brown to yellow due to impurities. For the heavily-used kitchen, granite farm sinks are the most practical.

Sinks are getting more attention today, not only as design elements, but as practical features. My wife loves anything shabby chic, and we have been looking for a farm kitchen sink for our loft. We live in a 110 year old livery stable, and it is my heart's desire. We are fortunate enough to have the original hardwood floors, with all the "medals of honor" of bygone years, and a great kitchen that suits my need as an experienced chef.
There is the possibility that you don't have enough room for the sink that you want. In this case, a bump-out can be built. A bump-out is where the counter top and cabinet at the sink extend several inches away from the wall, out into the kitchen, to provide a bit more space for the sink. Bump-outs can be extremely attractive, especially to highlight a particularly beautiful sink.

All things considered, a farm kitchen sink is a lovely addition to any kitchen. I am a firm believer that cooking must be an experience, and one to relish. things need to be right in the home kitchen, and what better way than with a farm kitchen sink?

    Cute for a tiny plant or succulent. I was expecting something a little bigger but I made it work.

    This is the 2nd storage seat that I've purchased and I'm very pleased with this item. It looks very neat, it's not too large nor too small. It keeps our outdoor cushions in fine shape and recently made a comfy extra seat for some guests. I really like the darker color of this, also.

    There is good reason for tge inticing price. A screw in the support beam doesn't have purchase so that it turns in perpetuity. Ill thought out.

    Great value for money, made out of stone so it is heavy and will definitely stay in place. Got the grey colour which looked exactly like the pictures. Extra plus for the drainage holes.

    This is brilliant just what I was looking for - I have my courgettes already planted and the rest will go out soon.Easy to put together ( my daughter did it) and looks great in the garden.

    This is a great swing for a small-ish outdoor space! I was pleasantly surprised by how nice the wood is (some reviews mentioned it not being smooth, but it is, and the stain on mine was pretty even. A few boards were scuffed but nothing bad.) Assembly was about what you’d expect - not too bad, directions are decent but like another review said, pay very close attention to which screws are which because they’re very close in size. I worried this wouldn’t weather well so I coated it with a full spray can of polyurethane. We’ll see. Really nice for the value!

    I was quite surprised how heavy the box was when it arrived. Really easy to assembled as all the pieces are marked alphabetically. Once assembled it’s really sturdy, the top cushion is really comfy and it’s a nice size. Fits under our window nicely.

    Good quality material , light enough for my balcony yet sturdy. Bit fiddly to put together, but I do have small hands , they didn’t simply click but once constructed they look attractive and will be even better when they have some plants in. Great service received them days before the date stated on the booking confirmation. Very pleased - May order some more !

    Very nice looking furniture. It looks a lot more expensive than it is. The green cushions that come with it are a nice touch. I found it very easy to assemble only took me an hour and a bit on my own. I would highly recommend it.

    Easily put together, solid and looks good. Gentle curve in seat and back makes for a comfortable sit even without cushions. Very good buy.

    Really easy to put together (better that there were 2 of us!) and such a solid box which is huge and stores all our furniture cushions. Great build quality that I think will last!

    We have a small patio and have a number of the Sol 72 Outdoor pieces to help with storage, the thing I like about this piece, is that it doubles as seating. Big enough to hide some toys or gardening supplies, or even bbq tools to keep them out of the weather. Durable and handy!

    Exactly what I wanted. I just painted this room a dark color and had an empty space on the wall. I wanted to put something's with texture or three dimensional and something light colored to offset the dark background. I also wanted something a bit more organic soI put fake little plants inside. They look great!

    Storage Seat was easy to assemble and provides needed outdoor storage for small frequently used items. Items remain dry and are easily accessible. Excellent purchase.

    The appearance was good and it is comfortable to sit upon. The protective paint covering was extremely thin. The wood used in it's construction is extremely soft in particular the sections used on the side arm-rests. this was noticeable upon inspecting the pre-drilled holes which were not crisply machined , as would be the case when using a hard material, but were crumbly and crude and it was this sort of material detail that made me consider that this garden seat will not survive many seasons when left outside in the UK climate.

    It’s easy to assemble and looks good in our garden. However the cushions are poor quality and after little use are already losing their firmness and shape
