design crush: apron-front sinks

One of my current design crushes is the farmhouse style apron-front sink that I see popping up in so many kitchens. I love the clean, classic look of these sinks, but even more I adore the functionality. They're big and deep, making it easy to wash everything - even that roasting pan from the Thanksgiving turkey. They're sturdy and the exposed front edge allows you to access the sink without reaching over additional inches of countertop. I also can't help but think that they'd make the perfect bathtub for baby!

With so many styles to choose from, the apron-front sink is no longer reserved for just the farmhouse style kitchen. They're made in a variety of materials and you can even incorporate them into your countertop for a seamless look that's far from country. Check out some of these great apron-front sinks and see why they're my current design crush!
