    What do you think are the negatives on your farmhouse sink? Would you go back to a double basin sink?

    Thanks.

    That is exactly what I thought.

    This is the first thing that popped into my mind after I read the title to this thread.

    I'm interested in this due to the fact that the wife bought a copper farmhouse sink to install when the kitchen is finished with the remodel.

    We will eventually get one when we do our counter tops. The major downside I see is that if you want to soak something like dishes, you will have to use more water to fill it up to the appropriate level. Also, if it is deep, the you will have less room below for your under sink bottles and whatnot.

    We did the kitchen remodel thing 2 years ago. Granite countertops and single basin undermount farm sink. For 25 years we had a double basin sink. We told the countertop company we wanted a double basin undermount. They said they could get one but rarely installed them, most customers buy single basin. We decided to go with single basin, love it, glad we went with their recommendation.

    We remodeled our kitchen two years ago and the wife insisted on a massive Kohler undermount farmhouse sink. I wasn't a fan of the idea but the thing is pretty awesome to use. I agree that if one soaks dishes often they might be a bad idea.

    Exactly why I clicked on the thread.

    I'm profoundly let down.

    So, the foundation is fine?

    I like the double. I'm sticking with it.

    This is an interesting subject. I'll have to call the little woman's attention to it.

    Any negatives you can point out, or are there none?

    Thanks.

    I plan on switching to single basin farmhouse sink. I never use the 2nd basin on the sink I have now. The only think I soak are pots and pans and that I just water in them for 15 minutes and leave them on the stove. So the 2nd basin is of no value to me.

    Whatever style sink you decide upon, if you do lots of cooking and/or baking do yourself a favor and go with a single large deep basin model. I have a standard double now and it is a total, and I mean total PITA to wash broiler pans, cookie sheets, big pots, etc., basically anything that's larger than a dinner plate; I have to flip these larger items around from end to end, and as I attempt to rinse them off water gets all over the place, down the front of the base cabinets, and all over me. And I prefer to bathe in the shower, not at my kitchen sink ;)

    If you like to soak dishes then get yourself an appropriately sized and inexpensive dish tub to stick in there and set it off to one side...and if and when you require the extra space for washing a larger item you simply remove the dish tub and voilà, you've got the space available to you.

    I plan on getting a larger/deep single basin "workstation sink" with a step or inner rails where a cutting board, strainer, dish drying rack, etc. that were designed for it can be inserted and removed when needed. I need a deeper sink and less space under it doesn't concern me considering I'm already space hampered by the garbage disposal that's currently installed - which I'll be glad to get rid of.

    Here's an example of what I'm thinking of:
