Beautifully warm and inviting kitchen in Portland, Maine. The honed black slate farmhouse-style sink and countertop are not something you see every day. The Antique Heart Pine floors and warm-toned cabinets are just so comforting. Sherwin William’s “Topsail” on the beadboard walls is a nice soothing color choice.

Types of Farmhouse Sinks

Farmhouse sinks come in different materials which differ in durability, strength and look. The most common materials you will come across are:

1. Fireclay

Fireclay sinks have a certain traditional flair that can give your kitchen a unique look. It is made by firing clay and glaze together in temperatures up to 1600 degrees, creating a very hard almost iron-like material. This gives fireclay sinks a relatively high level of durability and makes it resistant against scratches.

One major problem with fireclay sinks is chipping. Considering that this is a farmhouse sink, it is likely that you will be washing heavy pots and pans in it. The bang and clutter leaves the sink vulnerable to chipping. Only consider fireclay if you don’t plan on washing or placing heavy utensils in it or if you are buying a sink for your bathroom where the stress is less.
