If your kitchen lacks necessary counter space, or you are interested in adding an extra prep area, installing a corner apron sink is an excellent solution. An apron sink, which is just another term for farmhouse sink, is characterized by a visible front end that slightly projects from the surrounding cabinets. They traditionally have deep bowls and are often made from copper, stainless steel, or ceramic.
This style of sink is very popular in country- or farmhouse-style decor, but the right apron corner sink can also be applied to a modern or contemporary kitchen. They are also ideally suited for smaller kitchens because you don't need a two or three-inch lip between the sink and the edge of the counter. Apron sinks are also great for home cooks who like to whip up big dinners because they are sizable enough to hold large amounts of pots, pans and dirty dishes.
Buying a Corner Apron Sink
Finding an apron sink that is specifically designed as a corner option isn't a simple task. There are very few options on the web, so you might need to consider having one specially made for your space. Alternatively you can use a smaller traditional-style apron sink and craft a corner space to fit the full rectangular shape.
Here are some examples of apron sinks that will fit well within a corner space.
