Panel front farm sinks have architectural moldings on the face and require special handling in the cabinet.
A panel front farm sink must fit the counters and cabinets properly. Some have a raised top top edge. Others have a molded front panel that is notched in the back so they rest against the front of the cabinets. The shape and styles of fronts and bottoms vary as well. Herbeau’s double-bowl, panel front 36-inch French Ivory sink sits in front of the cabinet and is framed by a graceful Dupont edge on the stone. Installed under Verde Butterfly granite, it has a ¼ -inch positive reveal. A Barber Wilsons Bridgemaster faucet sits to the right of the Franke Little Butler hot/cold water dispenser on the sink deck. The backsplash is tumbled Honey Onyx with Walker Zanger Copper Patine, Trefoil & Deco inserts.
In a working photo taken before completion of this kitchen, Herbeau’s Luberon 30-inch, single-bowl panel-front fireclay farm sink also is pulled forward just enough for the molding to protrude from the sink base. Note how nugly the sink must fit into the base so it can be properly finished and how the routering at the bottom right is uneven. That section must be covered.
Caulk was added to the sides and bottom to seal the seam between the sink and the cabinet base on all three sides and then painted out to make it disappear. To the casual observer standing above the sink, the caulk is invisible.
