The simplicity of a single, deep sink is very attractive and is the key element in its design. Farmhouse sinks are plenty deep (making it hard for a tall person to bend down and do dishes!)
As for width, farmhouse sinks typically range from 20 to 36 inches wide.
Because they are designed with extra sturdy and durable materials, glasses and plates shatter really easily when dropped in the sink.
It would be a good idea to invest in some break-resistant dishware or just not put any dishes in your sink at all to avoid accidents! While other sinks like stainless steal tend to hide grime and wear-and-tear, a white farmhouse will show it all.
If you cook with a lot of iron pans, you should be very cautious about scratches in your sink. An easy way to avoid scratches is to purchase a rink rack to put at the bottom of your sink. This will keep pots, pans, and other dirty items from ruining your beautiful sink!
White farmhouse sinks are most commonly made of fireclay or porcelain.
The durability of fireclay means that it is resistant to scratches and chips and is easy to clean.
