Hooked on Farmhouse Sinks

During the great kitchen remodel of 2007, I had one thing I really wanted but didn't get...a farmhouse sink.

When I was choosing appliances, flooring, cabinetry, and granite options, but my father recommended that I keep things simple as I DO live in a condo and one, we didn't want to over improve and two, didn't want to make things too personal so that if/when potential buyers stop by in the future, they weren't turned off by my preferences. I'm sure he was right, but every time I see a farmhouse sink, I shed a little tear... {Not really, I'm not THAT big of a spoil sport!}

Nowadays, there are so many different styles of farmhouse sinks...granite, stainless, and yes, even traditional cast iron. I love them all and think there is nothing more inviting and quaint. Someday, my friends, someday, I'll have my sink. But until then, I'll just enjoy some of these inspirations from different magazines and websites.

What do you think? Do you love them, too???
I'm adding this post to Julia's Hooked on Friday's blog carnival and Melissa's Beautiful Life. Please check them out!!!

*faint* the double farm house sink is amazing! I love these things so much it hurts! And I'm with you... I am so jealous of people that have them. Do they make a farm house tub? I'd be all about that!

Ummm, they're my favorite. So pretty. I love the skirts underneath making them look like they have their aprons on, ready to work.
