Saving the Kitchen Sink
We modeled our kitchen around this sink, adding nice touches such as the copper tiles and faucet with retro handles. I'm not much for the new jazzy granite tiles, which are very beautiful but cast iron cookware plays havoc with it. Can you imagine the scratches after a couple of long cooking days? I like to be able to sit a hot skillet anywhere, and quickly if need be. That's why our counters are all tile. Affects resale value you say? Ha, in this market? I'd rather have convenience.
I can fit our large canning pots in this sink with plenty of room. And it was perfect for bathing a sitting baby. With such large drainboards she could splash her heart out and it was all good! Soap suds galore (and photos to embarrass her in front of her special someone, someday).
