This is because, more often than not, we tend to stop at wall textures and faucets alone with a calm resignation of keeping our old and dirty sinks.
Not only does it take all the joy and point away of having a beautiful kitchen by sticking out like a sore thumb, but it can also pose a risk to your family’s health for being that dirty.
Since it is something that you use every day for cleaning your dishes, it is far from advisable to keep using a kitchen sink for a whole eternity.
And if you’re on the lookout for the perfect sink that blends right in with your cookhouse decor, then we have some really good news for you!
Today, we’re reviewing the beautiful and functional Kraus Farmhouse Apron Single Bowl that will certainly be the central attraction in your scullery.
Keep reading to know all about this absolute beauty!

What did we like about the model?
The model worked really well for us after we installed it in our kitchen. We’re quite satisfied with the overall performance of this sink apart from a few minor inconveniences that we’ve discussed in a later slot for you.
But first, here’s a list of all that we liked about the product. Take a look!
The sink is made using premium grade T-304 TRU16 authentic 16-gauge stainless steel that makes it highly durable. The dimensions for the sink measure at 35.88” x 20.75” for length and width with a 10” deep bowl. It provides all the space that you need for soaking larger pans and other utensils.
The standard 3.5” rear drain opening and channel grooves facilitate optimal and proper drainage of water and debris, maintaining the hygiene of the overall structure.
It is designed to fit a minimum cabinet size of 36”, making it a space-efficient alternative.
The kitchen sink comes with hefty rubber dampening pads and a stone guard undercoating for a noiseless and peaceful cleaning experience. It also protects the sink from condensation and collecting scales over time.
Finish and dependability
The slightly rounded corners and “commercial-grade satin finish” make it very easy to clean and maintain. Just wipe it with a clean, damp cloth and the job’s done!
Overall, it brings an almost futuristic touch to the space with its design.
The kitchen sink is listed and certified by UPC, cUPC, IPC, ANSI, IAPMO, and SCC. This dismisses all doubts regarding the product’s authenticity and provides you with all the security so that you can safely depend and rely on it.
What could have been better?
Although the kitchen sink fared quite well and completely lived up to our expectations of it (which weren’t that high though), we did notice a few design flaws.
This sink is, unfortunately, not corrosion, stain or scratch proof. We wish the overall finish was as enduring as it was beautiful.
The unit doesn’t provide you with additional hardware options to secure it to the cabinet. The cutout template that comes with it falls short of the purpose that it’s supposed to deliver on.
Apart from this, it’s a nice kitchen sink to opt for.
- Beautiful design and durable finish
- Offers easy installation options
- Provides noise absorption and reduction
- Certified for authenticity
- Doesn’t provide any additional hardware accessories for installation
- Not an anti-corrosive unit
The Kraus Farmhouse kitchen sink is one of the most elegant and affordable options to up that glam quotient in your cookhouse!
