A copper kitchen farmhouse sink is the finishing touch your kitchen has been waiting for. Our farmhouse sinks are fully customizable in premium quality copper, stainless, or brass.
Farmhouse sink designs are becoming increasingly popular in today’s high-end kitchens. These sinks feature a deep bowl, often with a raised lip around the perimeter of the basin, giving it a unique look and feel.
They’re also designed to fit in smaller spaces, making them ideal for laundry room and bathroom applications.
In this post, we will describe eight appealing farmhouse sinks, what to consider when buying one, and why you should dump the idea of getting yourself a standard sink, and rather buy a farmhouse sink instead.
Types of Farmhouse Sinks
Let's start by looking at the different kinds of farmhouse sinks.
There are many different styles of farmhouse sinks and depending on how it is designed, each style provides unique benefits.
- Deep bowls are ideal for storing larger items such as pots and pans.
- Pedestal sinks give you extra countertop space.
- Shallow bowls are great for washing dishes and smaller appliances.
- Double bowl sinks are ideal for preparing large quantities of food.
- Single bowl sinks are best suited for small tasks like rinsing or hand washing dishes.
Farmhouse Sinks: Advantages
In kitchens where you prefer to keep things uncomplicated, a sink with the look and feel of a farmhouse is an excellent choice. Like everything, though, farmhouse sinks have advantages and disadvantages.
1) Appearance: The most obvious advantage of a farmhouse sink is that it looks great in almost any setting. They are renowned for their rustic charm and classic allure.
A farmhouse sink adds a touch of warmth to a room without being too much of a focal point. This type of sink is perfect for kitchens where there isn't a lot of space and you don't want something fancy-looking.
2) Ease of cleaning: The best part about having a farmhouse sink in your home is that it's easy to clean.
You won't have to worry about scrubbing off food splatters, grime, and stains like you would with a stainless steel sink. You won't need to do anything more than wipe down the surface from time to time, and you'll be ready to go.
3) Easy installation and customization: Farmhouse sinks are also simple to install. And they are available in a wide range of sizing and design options.
Farmhouse Sinks: Disadvantages
However, there are some drawbacks to consider.
1) Durability: First off, most farmhouse sinks are made from natural materials like stone, wood, or metal. This gives them a rustic appearance that many people love, but it can make them less durable over time.
If you live in a humid area where water tends to collect around your sink, you'll have to keep it clean regularly to prevent mold growth.
2) Kitchen compatibility: Next up, farmhouse sinks aren't always designed for modern kitchens.
Many of them don't include faucet holes and mounting hardware, making installation tricky. And if you do decide to install one yourself, you might find that the drain hole isn't large enough to accommodate your pipes.
3) Maintenance: And lastly, farmhouse sinks tend to be heavy. While they can certainly hold up well against daily wear and tear, they require extra care during cleaning and maintenance.
For example, you'll have to scrub away mineral deposits every few months. You'll also have to take special precautions when installing plumbing fixtures because they can crack over time.
Given their many benefits, though, farmhouse sinks are still often the better option due to their spacious, customizable size and their rustic look and feel.
Now that we have covered our basis, let's have a look at the CopperSmith range of farmhouse sinks and what they can do for you!

Before You Buy a Farmhouse Sink
Buying a farmhouse sink can be an exciting prospect, but there are a couple of things to keep in mind before you decide to buy one. Don’t rush out to buy one without first doing some research.
Is a Farmhouse Sink Right for You?
We’ve covered some excellent farmhouse sink ideas in this post, but is it really the type of sink for you? It’s worth reviewing some of the pros and cons of farmhouse sinks that we’ve mentioned above.
For instance, if you live in a humid area where water collects around your sink, then you’ll need to ensure you keep the sink as clean as possible to prevent mold growth. This is because most farmhouse sinks are made from natural materials. In short, this could seriously affect the durability of your sink and you may need to replace it sooner than you’d think if you don’t take care of it.
Another concern is that not all kitchens are compatible with farmhouse sinks. This is especially true for modern kitchens. While they may suit your ideas for a kitchen renovation, it doesn’t mean that your style of sink can easily be replaced with a copper farmhouse sink. If you’re ever in doubt about compatibility, don’t hesitate to contact CopperSmith today and we’ll offer our assistance to help you check if our farmhouse sinks can be a quick and easy replacement. If not, then you’ll likely need to perform a couple of changes to ensure our farmhouse sinks are compatible with your kitchen.
If you’ve fallen in love with the look and style of a farmhouse sink, then nothing should stop you from having one installed! They offer plenty of space and functionality, and they look absolutely stunning in the right conditions. If the ideas above have convinced you that it’s right for you, then don’t hesitate to give us a call so we can help you design the kitchen of your dreams.
Consider Size and Dimensions
At CopperSmith, we offer lots of flexibility when it comes to our farmhouse sinks. We offer lots of customization options in terms of length, width, and depth, meaning we can help you design the perfect farmhouse sink to fit your space. We encourage our customers to measure their current sink in order to get accurate dimensions that we can use to build a suitable replacement. This will ensure that the sink fits comfortably in your kitchen.
Do remember that farmhouse sinks tend to be much larger and deeper than standard sinks. If you live in a modern home, then you may need to make more space for a farmhouse sink. This could require you to alter the plumbing a little as the bottom of the sink will be lower than your typical modern sink.
In terms of width, many of our farmhouse sinks can be as small as 25 inches all the way up to 60 inches. So no matter where you plan to install a farmhouse sink, you can rest assured that we’ll build it to your exact specifications.
Choose a Style and Design
There are so many different types of farmhouse sinks that it can be difficult to choose one. From dozens of different finishes to having a drainboard, there are countless different combinations to choose from. Since a farmhouse sink can be quite an investment in your kitchen, it’s worth thinking about the type of style and design that you’re most interested in.
We’d suggest picking a farmhouse sink that somewhat resembles your existing sink. This will help ensure that the size of the sink matches yours and that no extra work needs to be done on your kitchen countertops in order to fit the sink. For example, a drainboard farmhouse kitchen sink offers increased functionality and is usually a direct replacement for most existing sinks.
In terms of design, CopperSmith offers dozens of different finishes and textures for both the apron and the bowl. Our 3D configuration tool allows you to quickly switch between the designs and see the changes reflected in the model. This gives you a great idea of what the farmhouse sink will look like, and you can use it to match your existing decor.
