The kitchen sink in my freestanding, unfitted kitchen. A Whitehaus Quatro Alcove sink and Strom plumbing wall mount faucet. Madrone butcherblock countertops and stand. Fireclay recycled tile, with a row of antique tiles as accents. And an antique refurbished single tap faucet on the right for filtered water. Closest thing to a belfast sink on this side of the pond.
Whether cast iron, fireclay, soapstone, copper, or stainless steel, apron-style sinks immediately say country kitchen. These sinks become workstation focal points when enhanced with chrome or polished nickel vintage-look bridge faucets. Round out the period design with old-fashioned door hardware, like the bin pulls and small knobs pictured here.
