Farmhouse Sinks & Apron Front Sinks in the Kitchen

Farmhouse sinks are the perfect choice for kitchens in a farmhouse style home.

A lot of people are confused about the difference between apron sinks and farmhouse sinks. There isn’t a whole lot of visual difference, but you should know that farmhouse sinks tend to be made of porcelain or fireclay, giving them the country look, while apron front sinks can be made of more modern materials like stainless steel.

Perhaps the most major difference is the installation of each sink. Apron front sinks have a lip that sticks out from the counter and is somewhat bare around the other three edges allowing for a slide-in installation, while farmhouse sinks could be finished on all four edges. Farmhouse sinks can thus be installed either above the countertop or beneath it!
