Installing a Farmhouse Sink
There are some sinks that you can attempt to install yourself, but generally it is highly recommended that you hire a professional contractor to do the installation for you. This will ensure that it is done right and safely. Remember that farmhouse sinks, especially metal ones such as cast iron, are heavy and could easily injure you during installation.
Farmhouse sinks can be installed in several positions. The traditional one is to have it sit slightly in front of the surrounding countertop. Another popular method is to install the sink slightly below the countertop level (under mount), making it easy to wipe water from the countertop into the sink. Alternatively, you can have the sink at the same level as the countertop (flush), letting the two seamlessly integrate. Another option is a top mount farmhouse sink, where the lip goes above the countertop level.
Even decades from now, we predict that farmhouse sinks are still going to be very much in vogue. Their classic style may be from an earlier time in history but their convenience is timeless.
