We have already taken a look at apron kitchen sinks in general, pointing out what a distinctive and eye-catching type of sink they are. We have also pointed out the benefits of a farm or apron sink in that you don’t have to lean over as far when using it. Now we will take a look at the copper farm sink.
Like the other apron kitchen sinks the copper farm sink is a very distinctive type of sink and one that fulfills its function to clean dishes and pots admirably. The deep bowl with virtually vertical sides gives you more space in the bowl than it looks like you have at first glance.

Copper sinks are not only popular because they have a finish that is different to many other sinks that you will find in most kitchens. Copper is a metal that changes over time as the oxidization process occurs. This process gives the metal a patina that becomes darker with age that often makes the sink look even richer colored than when you bought it. For a copper farm sink this will be even more relevant because the exposed front edge is going to take on the new appearance and become an even greater feature of the room.
The other advantage of installing a copper farm sink is the same as the advantage that other copper sinks give you and that is for the antibacterial properties of copper. The properties of copper retard the growth of bacteria which makes it difficult for it to take hold on the sink. Add to this the fact that using a farm sink is much better for your back because you can stand closer to the sink when you are using it and you have a sink that not only looks good but is better for you.
Many people will consider that there is another bonus to owning a copper farmhouse sink and that is that because many of them are handmade, hammered to shape by craftsmen, they are unique. For those who revel in the fact that they have one-of-a-kind items adorning their homes, this will come as a real plus.
The changing nature of the copper finish means that the sinks themselves don’t require a lot of maintenance. As the metal ages its appearance also changes and it becomes burnished and even more attractive. Naturally you should keep the sink clean after use but other than that there is little other maintenance required.
Copper farm sinks are available as either single bowls or double bowl sinks with it also possible to even find a triple bowl sink if that is your requirement. Because the sinks are hand-hammered they can be made to just about any specifications you require, you simply have to speak to a copper sink specialist about what you need.
The decorative appeal and the positive properties of a copper farm sink makes it an extremely attractive option on many levels and for a kitchen that can take such an old world style, it would make the perfect choice.
To complete the copper charm at the sink you might also consider the appeal of a copper kitchen faucet too.
