Florida is well known for being the sinkhole capital of the United States. Since that is a dubious distinction, we suggest focusing on a different kind of Florida sink – the farmhouse, seamless and vessel versions that are trending right now.

Why to Choose a Farmhouse Sink

Farmhouse sinks are the standby of the trendy kitchen. The wide apron-front sink offers plenty of space for family members to gather at the sink for washing up or just leave the dishes to soak in its ample basin.

These sinks have been a popular choice for years because of the convenience they offer serious chefs and a busy kitchen. Installing one in a stainless steel finish adds industrial elegance to any kitchen style. According to HGTV.com, “Homeowners are opting for large, single-basin sinks rather than double sinks to make room for bulky pots and pans. The primary sink is often accompanied by a smaller prep sink.”

How An Undermount Sink Can Streamline Your Kitchen

HGTV.com agrees, saying: Undermount sinks, which are installed below the countertop, offer a seamless look and allow for easy countertop cleanup. This type of sink can only be used with solid-surface countertops, such as granite, marble or composite. Enameled cast iron, another popular material for kitchen sinks, is an affordable option available in a wide range of colors.

Get Trendy With Prep Sinks

More and more homeowners are supplementing their primary kitchen sinks with food preparation sinks, which are available in a variety of shapes and styles. This crescent-shaped sink is as functional as it is aesthetically pleasing, with its curved design and dual drains, says HGTV.com

Vessel Sinks Remain a Favorite in the Bathroom

Vessel sinks remain an ideal option for the homeowner that wants to repurpose furniture into a rustic vanity. The old-fashioned yet elegant look of a vessel sink lends a striking sophistication to all types of décor. A porcelain sink bowl complements the distressed finishes while a sleek stainless steel or glass vessel sink can add flair to a modern bathroom.
