Before Julia and I left Brooklyn behind, we managed to score the very last farmhouse sink that Ikea had in the New York area. We had no idea, but when I mentioned on Instagram that we installed one, I was besieged by emails from people across the state asking to buy it out of our house. If I didn’t know they were so popular before, I definitely knew after that.
We’re fortunate to live in an area now where most people live in (some still working) family farm houses, so I’ve come to appreciate seeing all manner of farmhouse sinks, from more industrial tub sinks on stands to the classic white porcelain model we’ve all come to love. Whether they have a single basin or double, white or soapstone walls or have rounded or straight-edged sides, a deep farmhouse sink is always an welcome site in the kitchen. Today I’m sharing 14 of my favorites to inspire your next kitchen project (or salvage hunt!). xo, grace
