How to Choose Fireclay Farmhouse Sinks

When you are searching for the best fireclay farmhouse sinks for your kitchen, it can be difficult to go through all the options. From sink sizing to quality to price, there is a lot for consumers to consider before they make a purchase. So what are the most important things to keep in mind when you are buying farmhouse fireclay sinks?

What is Fireclay?

Fire clay is a material used for the creation of certain farmhouse sinks. Fire clay is a mud with a high amount of alumina content. In order to be considered “fire clay” the mud must be able to withstand temperatures of 1,515 °C or 2,759 °F. Fireclay farm sinks are made by heating up fire clay to high temperatures, which creates a durable and beautiful final sink.

Ideas For Fireclay Farmhouse Sinks

Choose a Simple Shaped Design

Stick to classic rectangular or square shapes with gently rounded corners when selecting a fireclay farmhouse sink. Avoid modern styles with sharp angles or asymmetrical shapes.

Select White or Bisque Finishes

Crisp white and light bisque are perfect neutral colors for fireclay that align with farmhouse style. If you want to make a statement, opt for a matte black finish instead.

Consider an Apron Front

Fireclay farmhouse sinks come in both undermount and apron-front styles. The apron front is more traditional with vintage character. White aprons pair well with natural wood counters.

Get the Right Size

Make sure to measure your existing space or planned countertop cutout. Fireclay farmhouse sinks range from compact 24-inch models to large 33-inch double basin styles.

Include Drainboards

Drainboards on either side of the sink provide functional space to air dry dishes or set items aside. Built-in organization is helpful for small farmhouse kitchens.

Add Rustic Metal Faucets

Complete the look with bridge-style faucets featuring galvanized, brushed nickel, or matte black finishes. Cross handles enhance the old-fashioned charm.

FAQs for Fireclay Sinks

Are fireclay farmhouse sinks durable?

Yes, fireclay is very durable and resistant to cracking, chipping, scratches, and stains. It’s more durable than materials like porcelain. Fireclay holds up well to daily wear and tear.

How do you clean a fireclay sink?

Use a soft sponge or cloth with a mild soap and warm water to clean fireclay sinks. Avoid harsh abrasive cleaners that could scratch the surface over time. For stuck-on food, let the sink soak for 15 minutes before scrubbing.

Can you change the color of a fireclay sink?

No, the color of a fireclay sink is baked in during the manufacturing firing process. The entire sink would need to be re-fired to change the color, which isn’t practical. Choose your ideal color when purchasing.

Do fireclay sinks stain easily?

Fireclay is resistant to staining, but very dark liquids like red wine or coffee can stain if left for prolonged periods. Light stains can be removed with baking soda or vinegar. Avoid letting stains set by promptly cleaning.
