Installing a kitchen sink is not difficult. Picking the right sink to fit your decorative style is. And if you prefer the more rustic look of a farmhouse sink, we have a collection of apron front copper sinks you will want to consider. However, before taking your final decision you should know that there are two principal differences as far as the installation is concerned. You can order the same model as a drop-in copper farmhouse sink or undermount. On this occasion, we will talk about our customers' favorite option- drop-in, copper sinks that are preferred due to their versatility and setup simplicity.
Take a look at these wonderful drop-in farmhouse kitchen sinks. They are deep, sturdy, make of quality materials, and you have loads of designs to choose from. We offer a wide assortment of different measures and styles of drop-in kitchen copper sinks that range from the most antique looking, resembling first farmhouse sinks from the late 17th century to contemporary and sleek designs, ideal for transitional or even minimalist kitchens. In general, a copper farmhouse sink has an ultra-durable solid copper construction that resists scratches, chipping and rust. It has a drip-free design so you won’t have to worry about your cabinets sustaining water damage. There is plenty of space to rinse your dishes in this sink, so you will have plenty of room. As a matter of fact, you can choose between single or double bowl sinks depending on your washing practice. If you tend to wash all dishes and dry them directly afterwards, a large single-bowl sink is a perfect option for you. However, if you like to keep your dishes to dry in the basin and still have space for a chopping board, you might want to order your drop-in, double bowl copper sink.
Now, what is the main difference between an undermount and drop-in sink-you might ask? With an undermount copper sink, there is no lip between the edge of the sink and the countertop where food particles and dirt can get stuck so the overall look can be a little bit more subtle. On the other hand, a drop-in copper farmhouse sink has a visible lip around its perimeter that rests flat on the countertop. The sink basin drops straight into the countertop cut-out, and the perimeter lip holds everything in place. Its main advantage is that can be added to already existing kitchen counter and plumbing. In that way is far more versatile and easy install than an undermount model. Under some circumstances, the lip of a drop-in sink can be also hidden below the counter. Regardless of the type of your chosen sink, our custom copper products are a fancy addition to any kitchen. The exposed front of the sink is an invitation to add unique décor such as rivets, high-relieves in form or grapevine or flowers and plants, so suitable for kitchen environment.
