The Gilford is an old-fashioned utility sink and a fitting choice for a retro cottage kitchen.
The iconic Kohler Gilford “scrub up” sink was originally designed for use in a laundry room. Shaped like an early 20th century apron front sink, it has a a high integral backsplash and it can be installed on the wall, or made to rest on legs or even just a simple platform. The bowl is not huge — the sink is about 24-inches wide but feels larger. In this cottage kitchen, the Gilford adds a vintage look. It takes a retro style wall-mounted kitchen faucet with an integral soap dish — the kind of faucet many of our Grandmothers used in their 1950s kitchens and that Kohler sells as their Antique faucet and American Standard calls their Heritage faucet.
The Gilford suits this retro olive green and white cottage kitchen. Set comfortably in front of the base cabinet, the raised backsplash is supported by a built out shelf that comes just under the window. What a great choice and a perfect finishing touch in a kitchen with a wood-topped island, open storage, and collectible clutter all around. The photo also offers a tantalizing peek through a doorway into the next room of this charming house.
