Top 4 Materials for Farmhouse Sinks

If you’re looking for a simple way to completely revamp the aesthetic appeal of your kitchen, installing a new farmhouse sink could be the solution for you. Their unique style provides the perfect dash of charm without the need for a major home renovation. But before you can begin the installation process, you’ll have to choose the right material to satisfy your tastes and lifestyle. 

The team at Rustic Sinks in Scottsdale, AZ, carries an impressively extensive selection of farmhouse sinks in more than 30 different finishes. Below, their experts have shared some of the most popular materials used by their customers for new sinks.

 

4 Popular Farmhouse Sink Finishes

  1. Fireclay

Aptly named, fireclay sinks are heated to more than 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit during the creation process. The material is heavy-duty and dense, making it practically invincible when it comes to scratches or dents. Homeowners who have large families love fireclay sinks because they are simple to clean, are capable of holding large loads, and have a long life span.

  1. Limestone

Limestone sinks are charming and nostalgic, appearing as though they have come right out of a farmhouse from the early 1900s. Soapstone and granite have become more popular throughout the years, but many homeowners still choose limestone for its old-time appeal. This natural material is easy to clean, extremely durable, and resistant to chipping.

  1. Stainless Steel
Easily the most popular among homeowners, stainless steel sinks are revered for their affordability, durability, and longevity. The lightness of this material makes it easy to design large bowls, which is ideal for kitchens that see a lot of use. Eco-conscious homeowners often choose stainless steel because it’s a recyclable material.
  1. Copper

If you want a showstopper in your kitchen, a copper sink is perfect for you. The distinct, deep hue of copper provides kitchens with an upscale look, and many homeowners choose between sinks with either a hammered or smooth finish. Copper’s antimicrobial properties make it difficult for bacteria to thrive for more than a few hours, so this style is perfect for those who frequently let dishes soak before washing them. 

Rustic Sinks stocks their inventory with the most up-to-date trends and classic styles for kitchen and bathroom farmhouse sinks. With more than 600 products to choose from, they can help bring your dream kitchen design to life.
