Qualified Recommendations For Your McLean Kitchen Remodel.

After 37 years of remodeling homes in NOVA, we’ve got some tips to help streamline and simplify your McLean kitchen remodel. When it comes to farmhouse sinks or apron-front sinks, we’ve got some pretty strong contenders. Here’s a brief description of the pros and cons for several options we recommend for your project:

  • Cast Iron: These popular options give you that vintage, traditional sink option and can come in white, black, gray and multiple other finishes. The disadvantages? Cast iron can scuff and chip.
  • Fireclay: If you want the look of cast iron without the disadvantages, choose fireclay. You typically can’t get all the colors you can with cast iron, but you won’t have scuffing or chipping issues. Expect to pay more for fireclay, but the longevity makes it worth it!
  • Stainless Steel: Stainless steel sinks are easy to clean and sanitize, especially if you go with 304 stainless steel. The main disadvantage? All stainless steel scratches, no matter how much you spend. If you wear a belt and the buckle hits the front of your farmhouse sink while you’re washing dishes, it could result in a highly-visible scratch.
  • Copper: A copper farmhouse sink looks utterly dreamy in a rustic and sophisticated kitchen. It can add earthiness that holds up well for years. If you’re considering copper, you need to understand that copper products patina over time. If you don’t want your sink to change colors, avoid living finishes, like copper.
  • Marble: As with any marble product, you need to stay on top of cleaning by doing it thoroughly and frequently. Marble is a soft, porous stone that can stain easily, especially if you cook with red wine, tomatoes, or other acidic ingredients. That being said, marble can add a luxurious feel to your space.
