When the Neanderthals needed a water basin they probably used a big rock that had been eroded into a concave shape by centuries of rain. All the rage today is the apron-front, squarish farmhouse sink, which echoes the shape of stone sinks made in America for some 150 years. In this region you may have a prayer of finding a salvaged slate sink. But buyer beware, says Tatko. The sinks may harbor hidden cracks from years of exposure to the elements, and you'll have to custom build your cabinets to accommodate their odd sizes.
When our great grandparents first brought running water into their homes in the 19th century, they often pumped it from a supply tank, usually into bowls or buckets set in a dry sink and metal trough built into a wooden cabinet. Many of the first wet sinks, like dry sinks, were metal lined. Two of the earliest available materials, used for butler's sinks in wealthy turn-of-the-century houses, were copper and nickel silver (a copper, nickel, and zinc alloy often called German silver).
Black on black on black has never looked better. The secret to this high-impact scene? Consistency. In addition to the coordinating countertops and backsplash, we love that the interior of this perfectly square sink follows suit. Only a tiny brass faucet gives away the sink’s discreet location.
You’ll be spending a little time each day standing in front of your kitchen sink, so select something lovely to dazzle your gaze. Choose a work of art you love—a painting of a relaxing scene or framed doodles from your children—to decorate this space. Antique farmhouse kitchen gadgets or a vase of fresh flowers will add great color and texture. These can be hung directly on the wall or placed along a shelf or two. Make sure the art you select is lovely but not precious since these items will be living above an active water source.
Inside this rehabbed house in East London by artist, maker, and furniture designer, Faye Toogood, a checkered pop decks the basin. Though the overall aesthetic of the space takes a slight turn for the utilitarian with the stone cold countertops and earth-toned ceramics, this special patterned splash is an inviting surprise.
A brushed nickel faucet is the ideal choice for someone who wants to strike a balance between contemporary and classic styles. The minimal design and sleek sheen of this faucet type blends with the subtle aged quality of brushed nickel to bridge the gap between the new and the old. Consider this style if you’re thinking about upgrading your whole kitchen in the future, but haven’t yet chosen a design plan. It’s versatile enough to match any major style.
Unlike the bathroom lavatory, which might have been made of marble or china with fluted edges, the kitchen sink was likely to be prosaic in both shape and material, and to have become chipped and stained over the years. So when it came time to update the rest of the room, off it went to the local landfill.
