Even the most exacting old-house owners determined that every last spice jar and cup hook in their kitchen should be genuinely historic may quail when it comes to choosing an appropriate kitchen sink Salvage dealers often stock only a handful, compared to dozens of clawfoot tubs and lavatories. "I don't get a lot in," says Tom Sundheim of Architectural Artifacts in Denver. "The kitchen was always the first room that anyone remodeled."
Buying a reproduction sink in any of these materials means you're more likely to find plumbing hardware that will fit its dimensions, especially hole spacing. If you're lucky enough to find a salvaged sink with its original fixtures, remember that you'll probably need to fix a leak or two and find adapters to hook it up to your plumbing system.
Today's kitchen restorations involve hundreds of decisions. Take for example that prosaic workhorse, the kitchen sink. While as recently as two decades ago it was difficult to find new sinks with historic appeal, modern-day offerings are plentiful—from slate apron-fronted farmhouse sinks, to stainless steel sinks with integrated drainboards, to everything in between. And let's not forget the option of using an original antique, too.
