A sink is arguably the most used fixture in any kitchen.

For several years now, we’ve seen kitchens sinks get larger and deeper, notably with apron fronts. Owners talk about loving their deep basins which are great for cleaning big pieces of cookware and — with sliding cutting boards and colanders – handy for keeping unwashed items conveniently out of sight.  But I’m always intrigued by differences which is why I’ve been looking at a trio of shallow stone sinks with an eye towards understanding the differences in their function.

Radius curves are the order of the day for this custom honed black stone apron-front sink with matching backsplash. The graceful center shape, with its curved shoulders, gives the sink a vintage personality and makes style sense with the oil-rubbed brass faucet with cross handles and porcelain caps.

Marble farm sinks are often found in old French and Italian kitchens —  going strong after a century or more.
