This wiki has been updated 12 times since it was first published in July of 2020. The distinctive design of farmhouse sinks makes them both a practical and stylish addition to a kitchen. By placing the apron flush with the front of your counter, they allow for deep basins that provide much more room to work in than standard models. The selection we've assembled here features a variety of finishes, sizes, and prices to choose from, so there is one for every taste and budget.

Whether you’re renovating your kitchen or just upgrading your existing sink, roomy and stylish farmhouse sinks are a popular choice. We’ve included a mix of stainless steel and ceramic options, as well as a copper model, the Sinkology Lange. Each of these materials has its own benefits and drawbacks, so it's important to consider them all before purchasing.
Stainless steel models like the Kraus Workstation or Kraus Standart Pro are easier to match with existing stainless steel appliances like refrigerators and stoves. They also have a little bit of bounce to them, and are less likely to break glassware, unlike harder ceramic sinks. However, their metallic look might not deliver the rustic charm you're looking for in a farmhouse sink.
Ceramics, like the Bocchi Classico and Kraus Turino are attractive options because of their clean, minimalist style. These are significantly heavier than stainless models though, so if you’re not comfortable doing this kind of installation, you’ll probably want to hire a professional.
Another decision you’ll have to make is whether you want a single or double-bowl model. Double-bowl options like the Koozzo Glazing White may reduce the width of items you can fit into your sink, but they also make it possible to multi-task kitchen duties. Separate bowls allow you to do things like defrost steaks or chicken in one sink, while having the other available for rinsing dishes or draining pasta, without risk of contamination.
If the farmhouse style isn't exactly what you’re looking for, these single bowl sinks have a wider variety of options to choose from.
