What is a farmhouse or apron sink?

The farmhouse sink

If you are into rustic decor (and who isn't?), you just might want to look at a farmhouse, or apron sink. This stylish beauty will look great next to the butter churn and faux pitchfork. With its front jutting out from its cabinetry, the apron sink can look a little bit pregnant. Decor-minded homeowners frequently customize their kitchens by integrating their farmhouse sink into a piece of furniture, like a dresser, instead of traditional cabinet sink base. Since these sinks usually have no deck, the faucet and other accessories are mounted directly into the counter-top behind the bowl.
