From there, think about what layout you want your sink to have. For example, you can have a single bowl or a double bowl kitchen sink. If you’re going with a double bowl sink, what about the bowl ratios? Many farmhouse sinks have a 50/50 ratio, but keep an eye out for a staggering ratio like 60/40. You may also want to invest in a reversible black farm sink with centered drains, to choose which side of the sink faces out to create a focal point in your kitchen.
Of course, you can also pick from a range of kitchen sink sizes. Large black farmhouse sinks are typically 33 - 36 inches, while small to medium-sized sinks are anywhere from 24 to 32 inches. Whatever you choose, just ensure you have plenty of counter space and be mindful of creating custom cabinetry to support the weight and size of your farmhouse kitchen sink especially with heavy materials like stone or fireclay.
