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.
A single bowl kitchen sink is usually larger than each individual double sink. In some kitchens the space that is allowed for the typical double bowl is taken by the single sink. The advantage in the single bowl is that the extra room inside gives room to washing large pots and pans without risking spilling water and soap onto the counter‘s back splash or even onto the floor. Of course, there are other uses for a single bowl kitchen sink. If your kitchen space is small, you may not have room for a double and a small single bowl one might be all the room your counter can fit. Single bowl sinks are also used as bar sinks or as a separate basin in a kitchen island. These single sinks fit in small kitchens as nicely as they do in large kitchens that might have more than one sink area as in islands or bars.
