How to Incorporate Farmhouse Sinks

Farmhouse sinks (sometimes known as “apron front” sinks) are charming and stylish.  Installing a farmhouse sink will create a beautiful visual anchor in your kitchen. They are available in several materials that can work in any kitchen. From iconic porcelain to copper and brushed nickel, the variety of options ensures you can include one in your existing kitchen or renovation.

Incorporating Farmhouse Sinks

Brushed nickel farmhouse sinks are complemented by almost any countertop material. One of my favorite pairings is a brushed nickel sink with a glass tile backsplash.

A copper farmhouse sink pairs well with granite and natural cabinets. Lighter stains are encouraged because of the visual weight of a copper sink. This will keep the kitchen from feeling dark or weighed down.

White cabinets will contrast well with a copper sink, making it more of a focal point.

My name is Julia Ritzenthaler, Founder and President of Unique Vanities, started in 2005. I started this business as an extension of our residential remodeling business, which focused on the design and build of custom cabinetry and architectural trim. I also worked as a financial advisor for 10 years at Ameriprise Financial, helping clients make sound money decisions, including budgeting for home improvement expenses. This expertise led me to start Unique Vanities, which offers a handpicked selection of high quality bathroom vanities, sinks, mirrors and more. You can find me most days sitting in Starbucks, my second office, or in my car driving my daughter across Dallas to gymnastics training.
