Have you ever walked into a kitchen and the first thing you see is a big beautiful sink and thought “I have to have one!”? Well, that is a farmhouse sink. They are big and beautiful and stunning but they also have a downside. But nothing is perfect and if you know in advance what the downside is you will learn how to take care of it and love your farmhouse sink.

Let’s face it, accidents happen. Dishes and glasses are stacked in the sink and break. Silverware or utensils are tossed in and something gets broken, it is bound to happen. Farmhouse sinks are made to last so most of them are made from cast iron, this is not a forgiving material. When you drop your dishes and glassware into them breakage is inevitable.

One answer to this dilemma is to replace your breakables with high-end break-resistant dishes and glassware. You can also add a sink grid rack or rubber mat that will cushion your breakables.

When picking out your sink know that a white one, whether a farmhouse sink or a standard sink, will show more scratches and dirt. All sinks will show wear after a period of time but it is easy to keep your sink clean, beautiful, and with a minimum of scratches.
