In old provincial kitchens, sinks were often cast iron or some form of pre-cast stone. They were virtually indestructible with volumes of every day use. Most had double ones. One for washing, one for rinsing as well as a drainboard. Many had one shallow and one deeper for doing laundry or giving baby a bath. Today‘s country kitchen sinks are pretty and useful. Most are free-standing or attached to a wood cabinet. The traditional look for today‘s sinks is one that has a cabinet under it and a skirt rather than a wooden cabinet door. In most country farmhouses, the kitchen was the picture of simplicity. The sink reflected that simplicity with a single large basin with a cast iron apron at the front. Very often, the basin was porcelain over cast iron to insure longer wear. The clean lines of a farmhouse sink was enhanced by two spindle legs on either side of it. These sinks were nearly always white or a dark travertine stone color. The great thing about these sinks is how well they retained heat. This was especially helpful since hot water was not supplied in older country homes by a water heater. Usually, water was heated in a large kettle kept atop the cook stove for dish washing purposes.
However, do not simply get the first sink that you set your eyes on. You should first look through the company‘s catalogue to ensure that you have found a suitable sink. Check on the style and make to ensure that you like it. You will have to see the sink for many years so if you do not want to waste your hard earned money buying and replacing it with another sink unnecessarily. Do not forget to also check that the sink is easily mounted on your countertop. If you are someone who loves to carry out DIY work around the house, make sure that the purchase comes with a manual to help you install it. Most of these kitchen sinks are easily mounted, as long as you have checked on how much holes it requires to mount the product.
