Decorating & Design
July 29, 2010
I love a good apron sink in a kitchen. They once used to be a “specialty item” that you had to order, but now you can even find them at Ikea (of course).
I like the look of a sleek stainless steel apron sink paired with traditional cabinets, like in last year’s Princess Margaret Home Lottery showhouse (above).
I also like a traditional cast iron sink installed in a modern kitchen — it’s all about simple contrasts.
Apron sinks are a great way to break up an expansive countertop or add a focal point to a kitchen.
Kohler’s Alcott fireclay tile-in sink is available plain or in two beautiful patterns which look great in almost any style of kitchen.
