European Kitchen Design Idea No. 3: Fireclay Farmhouse Sink

What is all the fuss about a fireclay farmhouse sink in a decidedly country kitchen anyway? Firstly, I don’t ever want to live without my hardworking 30″ Reinhard farmhouse sink! Second, the sink’s rectangle shape is decidedly just perfect for accommodating pots and pans. Thirdly, since it is created from fireclay (heated to uber high temperature to render it hard, durable, and beautifully shiny!), the sink does an exceptional job at tolerating my demands since I’m always busily creating in the kitchen.

First, draped linen under the farmhouse sink looks soft, beautiful, and traditional. Secondly, walls of French Limestone Bugets, an open hearth, and reclaimed cobblestone flooring humbly harmonize.

The design of a fireclay farmhouse sink is certainly about comfort. Before modern conveniences like dishwashers, folks spent long hours scrubbing, and the apron front design eliminates the strain of leaning over a countertop. Additionally, find a more thorough history lesson about fireclay farmhouse sinks should you care to geek out even more on this European country kitchen essential.

Country Kitchen No. 4: Reclaimed Terra Cotta Tile

If you desire to add authenticity, character, and also distinctive earthy color to your kitchen, here’s a decidedly gorgeous antique material with a rich history. More than a century ago, terra cotta tiles were created by hand from natural clay deposits in the earth. Then, after transferring the clay into wood molds for drying, tiles were removed to dry further in the sun before they were finally fired in wood-burning kilns. The unique color spectrum of terra cotta tiles results from variations of temperatures within the kilns.
