When it comes to kitchen sinks, we're admittedly opinionated: we favor deep, single-bowl models, capable of holding a dinner party's worth of dishes and accommodating oversize pots.

Here is a roundup of our favorite farmhouse sinks, including both apron-front and undermount styles. We've focused on white ceramic sinks (except for the last, which is cast iron), but many of those featured here are available in various widths and finishes. (For stainless steel options, see our post on 10 Easy Pieces: Stainless Kitchen Sinks).

Apron-Front Sinks

Above: In my Seattle remodel, I used Shaw's Original 3018 Fireclay Apron Front Sink from Rohl. It's a classic farmhouse sink, still individually made in Lancashire, England. The 30-inch-wide model is $1,147.50 at Home Click.

Above: The Shaw's Contemporary Classic Single Bowl Fireclay Sink offers the same handcrafted quality with more contemporary lines; $890.50 at Quality Bath.

Above: The Universal Fireclay Farmhouse Kitchen Sink features a convenient offset drain; $1,345 at Waterworks.

Above: Kallista's For Loft Sink by Michael Smith is a generous 40 inches wide; the fireclay sink is also available with a drainboard; $1,795 ($1,868 with the drainboard) through Kallista.
