Farmhouse Sinks…a far cry from the old Farm House

If you’re thinking Green Acres when you hear the words Farmhouse Sink you’re a bit out of sync. Today, many homeowners have expressed a desire for bigger, deeper sinks much like those found in rural American farmsteads a long time back. But while they may emulate the old sinks of yesteryear, they are completely au courant when it comes to materials, finishes and color options. At Hardware Designs in Fairfield, NJ, my informative sales associate laid out an extensive menu of options that are available. After explaining the various types of sinks…fireclay, stainless steel, bronze, copper, marble and granite he provided further useful insight into the upkeep and maintenance each material requires. Ultimately, I selected a weathered copper farmhouse sink with a mosaic tile interior. It was exactly what I wanted and I purchased a coordinating prep sink with matching kitchen faucets. If you’re in the market for a farmhouse sink, visit Hardware Designs on their web site at:, or visit the showroom. It’s truly a find. For further information, contact them at
