20+ Ideas Everything You Need to Know About Farmhouse Sinks

Farmhouse Sinks – Being from Ireland and having included the beautiful Belfast farmhouse sink in many traditional country and farmhouse kitchen designs, I have a bit of a soft spot for farmhouse style sinks.

The farmhouse sink originated in a time when there was no running water. The idea behind the sink was that it was a place to hold large amounts of water, which was fetched by hand from nearby wells, lakes and rivers.

The two original farmhouse-style sinks emerged in Ireland and Britain in the late 17th century. They were of similar design but had their own characteristics.

The Belfast sink was deep and had an overflow so that excess water could easily drain away instead of flowing over the sides.

The London sink designed for an area where water was scarce and therefore more precious was shallower. It had no overflow so that every last drop could be kept inside the sink.

If you’re thinking about choosing a farmhouse style sink for your kitchen, here’s what else you should know.
