The Perfect Farmhouse Sink and Faucet for My Cottage Kitchen

A deep farmhouse sink and gorgeous faucet create the perfect backdrop for my cottage kitchen renovation.

{This post is in collaboration with Elkay.  All opinions are my own.  See full disclosure here.}

I'm so excited today to finally give you a sneak peek of our kitchen renovation!  We aren't completely done yet, so this will be one of many reveals, but we are able to cook again and I am so excited to have a sink to wash dishes in. It was certainly a long process that hit many snags along the way!  I am ever so grateful to be where we are now and can't wait to show you what we've done!

One of my biggest wants for this space was a farmhouse sink.  I have always admired those deep sinks for hiding dishes down in and washing out large pots and pans.  I just love the extended panel on the front which adds such a pretty design element to a kitchen.  

In doing my research, I decided on one large bowl instead of two.  The reason being that I wanted that extra space for washing large platters for entertaining, baking sheets, and even roasters. My previous sink was a divided one and I really didn't have enough room for laying flat cutting boards or platters to wash.  I also wanted to make sure whichever sink I chose would be long-lasting and durable.  I ultimately decided on the Elkay Fireclay Single Bowl Farmhouse Sink because the fireclay material makes it stain and scratch resistant.  Knowing that we have three children and lots of dishes, I wanted to make sure it was durable.  Along with durability, this particular farmhouse sink is extra deep and sound-deadening!  

Plus, you can see for yourself that it is absolutely gorgeous!

Now let's talk about the faucet!  This is the Elkay Explore Single Hole Kitchen Faucet in Lustrous Steel.

It has a pull-down sprayer with a stream or a spray setting which helps get into the corners of this large sink and rinse thoroughly even your toughest caked on food.  I like that it does not show fingerprints and has everything you need all in one hand.
