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.
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).
If you need more space, the solid wall in front of your kitchen sink provides an excellent location for additional storage. You can choose to install glass-front cabinets to show off your beautiful dishes or open shelves to make your mixing bowls easier to reach. (Open-air shelves will need to be dusted and cleaned more frequently, so limit the items you put on them.) Illuminating your cabinet spaces with curio lights makes for a nice finishing touch.
