This makes for a stylish and attractive kitchen sink, in any kitchen, contemporary or rustic. But how can you make sure that your apron sink works for your space?

What are the important considerations when choosing an apron sink for your kitchen?

If you are thinking of installing an apron sink in your kitchen, there are a number of things to consider. These include:

  • The material choice
  • Single or double basins
  • Tap choices

Material choices for an apron sink

When you think of an apron or farmhouse sink, you might think of the white ceramic sink that is the standard option. However, there are other material options available. These include copper, stainless steel, granite composite, and even solid surface materials. Choose the material that will best suit your kitchen, including the colour scheme and practicality, as well as your budget.

Apron sinks with single or double basins

One of the important considerations for your apron sink is to decide whether you should install a sink with one single basin, or two. Dividing the sink into two basins can be a very practical option. For example, you could use one part of your sink for food prep or hand washing, and the other for dishes, and you wont need to clear the sink so frequently.

Tap choices for apron sinks

Apron sinks can make use of a wide range of tap styles and designs. The main choice you should make will be choosing the taps that best reflect or complement the overall style of your kitchen. While apron sinks tend to be used in rustic or farmhouse kitchens, they are becoming more popular for contemporary spaces too.
