Choosing what kind of sink to install depends upon the type of countertops you have. If you have a laminate top you have a choice of a metal frame sink or a self rimming sink. However, if you have a solid surface countertop you have a larger variety of sinks to choose from. The choices you have are: the apron front which is reminiscent of the farmhouse sink; the tile which is square and fits into any tiled countertop; the metal frame which is attached directly to the countertop with a metal frame; The self rimming which sets on the countertop and supports itself that way; and the undermount which is recessed and sets flush with the countertop.
Depending on the size of your kitchen, you should be able to find an apron kitchen sink that will fit into your kitchen countertop. As for pricing, it rests on the the model of kitchen sink that you decide on. With higher quality materials that tend to last longer, you would be paying more. Size, colour and brand will also play a part. If you are going for a country style theme, then a copper sink might be something to consider. But be prepared that a copper sink would cost more than one made from fireclay.
In old provincial kitchens, sinks were often cast iron or some form of pre-cast stone. They were virtually indestructible with volumes of every day use. Most had double ones. One for washing, one for rinsing as well as a drainboard. Many had one shallow and one deeper for doing laundry or giving baby a bath. Today‘s country kitchen sinks are pretty and useful. Most are free-standing or attached to a wood cabinet. The traditional look for today‘s sinks is one that has a cabinet under it and a skirt rather than a wooden cabinet door. In most country farmhouses, the kitchen was the picture of simplicity. The sink reflected that simplicity with a single large basin with a cast iron apron at the front. Very often, the basin was porcelain over cast iron to insure longer wear. The clean lines of a farmhouse sink was enhanced by two spindle legs on either side of it. These sinks were nearly always white or a dark travertine stone color. The great thing about these sinks is how well they retained heat. This was especially helpful since hot water was not supplied in older country homes by a water heater. Usually, water was heated in a large kettle kept atop the cook stove for dish washing purposes.
The corner kitchen sinks fits into an L shaped kitchen or a small kitchen because the kitchen is still accessible and gives the cook more movable room. It does not interfere with the other work that has to be done in the kitchen. The corner sink can also be used in a larger kitchen where it would also be more accessible and still out of the way for the work being done. If the dishes tend to accumulate in the sink, they are not quite that visible in a corner kitchen sink in a large kitchen.
