Apron front kitchen sinks are unique from other styles in their front design and depth. Originally found in 19th and 20th-century farmhouses, this style has found its way into the transitional, contemporary, and modern designs of today.
Unlike recessed sinks, the apron sink juts out from the surrounding cabinetry. The purpose of this design is to relieve back pain due to hours spent bent over the sink at awkward angles. Additionally, these sinks came from a time before automatic dishwashers when families were large and the pots and pans were numerous which required sinks with greater depth and capacity.
