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.

For instance, if you prefer to have a stainless steel sink, you can consider the Franke Ariane sinks which have a silk finish. These sinks are available in singles or doubles as well as one and half bowl under mount. Alternatively, for stainless steel sinks, you can also choose the Franke Compact which are available in many different sizes and styles. If you prefer something white, you can consider getting the Calypso range of sinks. These sinks can also be purchased in other colors such as oatmeal, graphite or champagne.
