"Everything but the..." - Concrete Farmhouse Sinks
We were contacted by these Flower Mound, TX homeowners who wanted to upgrade their kitchen from the outdated contractor grade granite countertops. While talking it over, they also decided to go for a unique concrete farmhouse sink that would really stand out. This combination was sure to create a “wow” factor in their kitchen.
For this project, our clients requested that we create a unique stone-textured edge on their countertops. No problem. We fabricated a special mold edging to create that stone like texture.
They also asked us to build a single basin concrete farmhouse sink. (When these owners said they wanted their new kitchen to impress, they really meant business!) They told us precisely what size and style they wanted and we built another mold to those specs.
For these particular countertops we decided to go with a cast in place process (we build, pour, polish, and seal the countertops on site) instead of the normal precast method where we build them in our shop and deliver them since there were some clearance issues that prevented us from doing that.
That said, for our concrete farmhouse sink we only have one option – precast. It is impossible to try to do this as a cast in place option. The sink itself was made in a separate mold, poured, cured, then installed underneath the countertops once they had been finished. All pieces were sealed with a solvent-based polyurethane that added a high-gloss shine and made the surfaces very durable and stain-resistant.
This kitchen remodel turned out just as the homeowners had hoped. The countertops are definitely a conversation piece and the concrete farmhouse sink the focal point of this beautiful kitchen renovation.
