Farmhouse sinks are all the rage right now, and while there are many
wonderful options, a copper farmhouse sink will make a huge decorative
statement in your kitchen. At Copper Sinks Online, we have a few tips
for those who wish to add a copper farmhouse sink to their kitchen.
One of your first steps will be to think about the size of your
copper farmhouse sinks. We have small sized copper sinks in 22-inch,
25-inch, and 30-inch widths, as well as medium 33-inch copper farmhouse
sinks, 36-inch copper sinks and larger 42-inch copper farmhouse sinks. (Shown to the left: SoLuna 33" Copper Farmhouse Sink with 60/40 Well Split.)
You also need to think about the depth of your copper farmhouse sink,
and typically, you’ll find that sinks will range from about 18-inches to
21-inches in inside depth. However, we are happy to create a custom
order if you need a specific height, width and depth.
Because our copper farmhouse sinks are artisan crafted, the sizes can
vary somewhat, up to about one half of an inch. Of course, this
handcrafting is what makes our copper farmhouse sinks so unique. You
simply will need to be certain of the exact measurements of your sink
prior to installing surrounding countertops, so we do recommend that you
have your sink in hand before making any final cuts. You also need to
consider whether you want a copper farmhouse sink that is flush with
your counter top or perhaps an undermount sink. Generally farmhouse
sinks are a bit lower than the countertop, but that may not be a
feasible option in your kitchen.
We have dozens of different styles of copper farmhouse sinks. Some
sinks include one single large basin, while others have two basins, and
we have a few with a small central basin as well as sinks with a triple
well. Often people enjoy the single basin as this makes it quite easy to
wash larger pots, pans and dishes.
In addition to the number of basins, we have several different
finishes available for your copper farmhouse sink and also have a wide
variety of two-tone copper kitchen farmhouse sinks. Our designs range
from sleek, contemporary designs to traditional copper farmhouse sinks
and even some amazing rustic designs. Shown to the right: SoLuna Two-Tone Berry Vine Copper Farmhouse Sink.
You also will want to select a kitchen drain for your copper
farmhouse sinks, and we have several different options. You can select a
finish that complements the sink or perhaps one that complements the
faucet. We also have standard drains, disposal drains and disposal
drains with a stopper, so that is another decision you will want to
make. Our PVD/Oil rubbed bronze kitchen drains come with a lifetime
warranty and will never chip or peel.
Of course, we have a full selection of faucets for your copper
farmhouse sink, and if you are purchasing a sink and faucet together you
will receive 20% of the price off the faucet off your total order. Many
customers have kitchens with a prep sink, and upgrading your current
prep sink to a copper prep sink is an excellent idea as it will serve as
a beautiful complement to your copper farmhouse sink.
Now, go forth and design, because you are prepped with everything you
need to make an informed decision about your new farmhouse copper sink!
