When I think of a farmhouse kitchen, an apron sink is what first comes to mind. Usually a white apron sink. But when I got my kitchen cabinets made, we were on a tight budget and our cabinet guy said it would cost a ton more money for him to cut down the cabinet to make it work for an apron sink. And he said the sink itself cost a lot more. That’s one of several things I wish I would have researched a bit more on my own or talked him into doing. Because I love apron-front sinks. . .
Although, I’m happy with what I went with because although I’m super in love with farmhouse style, I think it could date my kitchen. Like in 20 years, people will look at an apron sink and be like, “Wow! That kitchen is so from the 20 teens!” Is the 20 teens even a thing? Plus, I’ve had a porcelain sink before and I hated it. I felt like I spent my life cleaning up marks on it.
So I ended up with a stainless steel sink insert that only has one bowl and is huge and really, really deep. Like, I’ve never seen a sink so deep. I really do like it. It was affordable and wears really well and cleans up easily. Nice and simple, but very practical and timeless. Here it is:
But a girl can dream, right? Here are some farmhouse kitchen sinks I love. Maybe someday I will have one like these.
1. I love this class white apron sink via Home Decor Mama
But I really like the towel, which reminds me that really I should be accessorizing with farmhouse decor so I can get that feel but keep my affordable sink. I think the faucet pulls everything together nicely too. Oh, And I love the plant pots too.
2. I’m in love with the barn wood, the sink and the decor via Blesser House
If you read the full post, there are better shots of just the sink, but I like this shot to show how the sink fits in with the whole theme and isn’t the only farmhouse thing in the kitchen. Her post also lists where she got most of the stuff, which could be very helpful. She got her sink at IKEA, which I’ve heard several other people say they got theirs there too. Apparently, I should have gone there, although her sink isn’t near deep enough for me and has two separate sides, which I hate.

4. I love the apron sink and the shelves above the sink via The Little White Farmhouse
It’s personally way too much white for me, but she did a good job pulling it all together.
5. I love this copper apron sink, especially with the green cabinets and darker faucet via Rustic Farmhouse
Plus, the doors under the sink bring in some of the rustic barn wood, without having to do all the cabinets with barn wood. I like the fruit basket and the glasses holder thing. Plus, somehow you can click on some of the things in the photo on Instagram and it tells you where to buy them.
6. I love this double farmhouse sink and how the faucet is in the sink on the wall via Houzz
The wall of windows isn’t bad either. And let me just say that the towel bar in front of the sink sounds like a good idea, but I know I would hit it like 5,000 times.
7. I love the concrete apron sink, the beams in the ceiling and the floors via Remodelista
I really like the polished concrete floor. I wonder if I could do that to existing concrete on my back porch that some day I want to be my sun room.
8. I love the farmhouse stainless steel apron sink, because it’s practical and would match my appliances via Hooked on Houses
If I would have actually researched sinks before I bought mine, I’m pretty sure I would have picked one like this. Oh well. I still like mine.
9. I love how wide this farmhouse sink is via Sharon Lovejoy
Plus, the washboards on the side are practical and look cool. Plus, she’s hiding two dishwashers under the sink!
