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.
