The easiest way to transform your farmhouse-style kitchen into a Pinterest-worthy dream kitchen is with a beautiful copper sink.
The beauty of choosing a copper sink is that whether you choose to invest in a super-high quality one, or, spend half the amount on a lighter gauge copper, you will only enhance the design of your kitchen however grand or small!
Without question, a copper sink will always look more beautiful and bespoke than the tied old standard sinks that most of us grew up with.
Did you also know that copper has been scientifically proven to be naturally antimicrobial? Copper surfaces in hospital trials have shown a 71% reduction in bacteria.
Best Luxury Copper Farmhouse Sink: HEAVY-GAUGE Copper Farmhouse 30″ Sink by Fossil Blu
If you are looking for a high-quality farmhouse-style sink, this heavy-gauge copper sink by Fossil Blu is absolutely the one you should go for.
Weighing in at a full 50 pounds of 99% pure copper, this 12 gauge copper sink is thicker and heavier than just about any you’ll on the market today.
Safe to say this one is built to last.
Fossil Blu is a US, family-run company. They have been designing and sourcing high-quality fireclay and copper sinks since the year 2000.
Renowned for its quality and craftsmanship, each sink is individually hand-hammered by skilled artisans to avoid uniformity and retain a more natural patina.
Needless to say, Fossil Blu intentionally avoids sourcing their sinks from any county that mass produces cheap products.
This one comes with a copper-plated 304 stainless steel disposal flange and stopper (making it disposal-ready). It also comes with a standard copper-plated 304 stainless steel drain.
In addition to that, you get the basin rack that you can see in the photo, above. The basin rack is capable of holding a whopping 200 lbs of dishes.
If you have the budget, this one is a fabulous choice. It’s solidly built and much thicker than the standard 16 gauge that you’d normally expect to find.
It’s certainly built to last and it won’t scratch or dent easily. That being said, just as with anything you want to keep looking good, you’ll want to take a little extra care with it.
If you are looking for something a little more affordable, take a look at our next pick.

That said, they are still durable enough to withstand everyday knocks and scratches.
