Perhaps you have seen beautiful log homes in magazines or have visited and admired the country farm house plans of friends or acquaintances; or you have just simply loved the idea of log home living ever since you read about it in history class in school or saw it on the wide screen in movies about the frontier. Maybe you lived in a log house in a happy past life. In any case, now that you are ready to build your own log home, how can you make your dream a reality? Before beginning the search for a log-home company, you should think about several things: what are the features you want in your home; what profile and what species of log do you want; how much are you willing to spend and how much of the construction do you want to do yourself?
The difference between a farmhouse sink and a regular kitchen sink is that the farm basin has an apron front that shows when installed, whereas a regular kitchen sink is installed within the countertop and the outside of the bowl is hidden from sight. Another difference between a farmhouse sink and a regular kitchen sink is the bowl of a farm sink is usually much deeper than a regular kitchen sink and has a much larger capacity. Most farm sinks come in single-bowl styles; however, it is also possible to find them in dual-bowl and even triple-bowl styles.
Farmhouse sinks come in a variety of materials, the most popular of which are stainless steel, white glazed fireclay, and marble. As an added touch, some farm sinks may have floral designs painted on or carved into the surface of the apron of the basin. Farm basins cost quite a bit more than traditional stainless steel kitchen basins, especially those made from marble or other more costly materials, but they can help transform an otherwise dull kitchen into a culinary showplace.
The fire clay sink is much more fragile than the other sinks but more durable. The drains can be reversible left or right center located. This type of sink can be used with a garbage disposal. The fire clay sinks has a flat smooth surface. Lastly, there is the bronze sink which is rare and beautiful and quite heavy. It requires a lot of care but makes a bold statement in the kitchen. Material is not the only thing to consider so you will have to do your research to get the best prices and more options. And because of their unique installation, it is recommended that you have the sink on hand during the cabinet construction.
