So how do you decide between the many options out there? OHJ checked in with two readers—one of them a former editor on staff—to find out how they selected sinks for their kitchen rehabilitations, and the specific challenges they faced in getting them installed. But when it came to the sink, they realized they could go a couple of different ways. They could select a sink from the mid-1800s, the house's early timeframe, or one dating to the year they had documented the installation of indoor plumbing on the house, which was 1948.
Candlemakers Linda and John Meyer’s bright and bold Portland, Maine home is an enticing celebration of color and fun. A true lesson in not taking life too seriously, their carrot-colored sink effortlessly picks up on the pair’s equally vibrant collection of dishes—not to mention, the cabinet knobs. With a sink like this, washing up after dinner would seem like anything but a chore.
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.
