The new trend in kitchen sinks is the farmhouse sink–also known as an apron front sink. I had one at my last house, and I loved it! I will never have a split sink again. The sink is wonderful for so many reasons. I could put a whole cookie sheet in it, bathe the baby easily, and wash huge trays and pots, just to name a few. It just had so much room. I also really like the look of the sink. The sink actually becomes a focal point in the room. Most of the sinks are fireclay. They have a wonderful imperfect look to them. They have a smooth ceramic look. Because they are becoming so popular, they are starting to make them in a variety of colors and shapes. I like the basic white one’s, but I understand that these do not work in every kitchen. They are always undermounted which is nice. You can just sweep the leftovers of whatever you’re working on right into the sink without worrying about a lip to catch all the yucky stuff . When a sink is not undermounted, the edge of it can get grimy and gross. Usually, you undermount sinks with granite, marble, soapstone or some other solid surface. I have never seen one with a tile countertop.
Here are some pics of farmhouse sinks:
This particular one comes in black, biscuit and white.
They also make them in metal.
