KITCHEN INSPIRATION (05): Great artisan farmhouse sinks

Kitchen design changes fast. What is popular today may be completely outdated tomorrow. The farmhouse sink though is a brilliant choice for contemporary kitchens. A staple in kitchens and bathrooms for hundreds of years, the farmhouse sink, also known as apron front sink, is one kitchen sink product that never goes out of fashion. 
The company The Sinks Gallery offers some great artisan farmhouse sinks that are made of copper and bronze and which can even be customized. Sinks such as these give a truly unique artisan look to a kitchen and with the option to have a choice of aprons, really set them apart. For details, see the enclosed links below.
