Repurposing a salvaged sink traditional kitchen
 

Repurposing a salvaged sink

This salvaged kitchen sink was found awhile ago by the client who new she wanted to use it if ever she renovated. Integrated beautifully into the Danby marble countertop and backsplash with new fixtures it is a real joy to clean up.
This kitchen was formerly a dark paneled, cluttered, divided space with little natural light. By eliminating partitions and creating an open floorplan, as well as adding modern windows with traditional detailing, providing lovingly detailed built-ins for the clients extensive collection of beautiful dishes, and lightening up the color palette we were able to create a rather miraculous transformation.

These pendants are brass pendants with vintage glass originally from Conant Custom Brass in Vermont and I believe they are 7 inches in diameter at the largest. They are now called Conant Metal and Light and they say, "The pendants are our custom pendant, in a standard finish they are $169.00."

This is a salvage sink collected by our client years ago, I am afraid I can't help other than to suggest contacting a salvage house like Vermont Salvage in White River Junction, VT. These dimensions might help: the overall width is four feet three inches and has two bowls. Please also see some of the other posts to this question, some other salvage suppliers might have something similar. Good luck!

Those are satin nickel sprayer and control from Rohl Country Kitchens. They were necessary because the faucet to the salvage sink didn't accommodate a spray.

This information has been posted in the past, but here it is again. This is a Marvin Wood French Casement window directly above the sink (WFCM5640). This is a nice unit in that the sash both open out without anything obscuring the view. The frame size is 4' - 8 1/2" wide x 3' -4 1/8" high. The casements to the sides of the center window are WCFM2848's.

With a Wall Mount faucet you get all the functionality of a normal kitchen faucet - plus they look great! The main issue from a functionality standpoint is does the spout swivel and how much clearance do you have under the spout? A swivel spout is great so you can reach both sink bowls. The clearance is important so you can fit dishes/pots and pans/ etc. under it. Here are two ideas for faucets similar to the one in the picture. http://faucetlist.com/KS1241AX-Kingston-Brass-Metal-Cross-Handle-Chrome-Wall-Mount-Kitchen-Faucet.html http://faucetlist.com/KS1291AX-Kingston-Brass-High-Arch-Metal-Cross-Handle-Chrome-Wall-Mount-Kitchen-Faucet.html

I would get on the phone with a Rohl dealer and ask how you order the "Rohl Country Kitchen Collection Single lever sidespray" that would be the best way to proceed. We had a creative plumber and an accommodating cabinet maker. The hand spray works independent of the sink faucet. Good luck.

These sinks come in single basin with integral drain board on left or right. They also come with double basin, the deep basin on left or right. They also came with no apron as shown or with 5 1/2" to 8" aprons.
They were available as described in 40-43", 50-53" and rare 60" single basin w/ single integral drain board. Beyond this style was a host of other styles, configurations, original colors etc. I would send anyone who emails me a SkyDrive album showing a variety of styles etc. Ken GrampasAntiqueKitchen.com

The same style was made in single basin models form 24" to 42". The 24, 30, 36 inches being the most common. I have only seen one 42" single basin. Keep in mind that the single basins will all be only 5 1/2 to 6" deep! My apologies for not adding this comment earlier.

Hmmm, I've been thinking about this. There are some modern kitchen sinks that have a tall back. Kohler has the Brockway sink but it has holes for two faucets. That was the most similar I could think of. But, Kohler also has the Bayview http://www.us.kohler.com/us/Bayview%E2%84%A2-top-mount-utility-sink-with-2-faucet-holes-on-backwall/productDetail/Utility-Sinks/421781.htm?skuId=376111&brandId=433011&isSeachPage=true&pageName=&hash=id%3Dfilters%26startIndex%3D40%26scrollTop%3D0

Separately, American Standard has a sink with a tall back on it: http://www.americanstandard-us.com/kitchen-sinks/country-kitchen-sink/

Suggest you go to your local plumbing supplier or a traditional interior designer and see what they can do for you - you should be able to find something that has a similar feel.

Thanks for the quick reply! My concern is over choosing a light trim and cabinets in the kitchen that will not blend with the darker trim in the adjacent rooms.

I think that linking the style of the cabinet doors to the other doors in the house is more important than matching the wood. The styles need not be identical, but should be similar. In my house all trim is painted white and my kitchen cabinets are a medium color wood. It works because the kitchen cabinets have a raised edge around the doors and drawers that makes a rectangle whereas the doors in the house are six-panel composed of rectangles.

Hello,
This a Wall Mount Bridge Kitchen Faucet by Rohl. They make exceptional quality products and the owner is very happy with them - she also has Rohl in the laundry room/dog shower and in her master shower. The model of this kitchen faucet is A1456XM (for cross handles) in polished nickel. One downfall with this faucet was the owner wanted a sprayer. We were able to sneak one in on the left of the sink (behind the drawer slide), with its own controller - both also by Rohl.
Hope that helps!

Caution folks, reglased cast iron sinks are not done with porcelain and they will not last more than a few years of real use. Stick with a worn one you have or find a nice original porcelain finish one.

Hello,
This is a Marvin Wood French Casement window directly above the sink (WFCM5640). This is a nice unit in that the sash both open out without anything obscuring the view. The frame size is 4' - 8 1/2" wide x 3' -4 1/8" high.
Hope that helps!

I am using Royal Danby in my kitchen, and I was told there is a product called Bullet Proof that they can put on it to make it not stain.

Hello,
These pendants are brass pendants with vintage glass originally from Conant Custom Brass in Vermont. I believe they are now called Conant Metal and Light.
Hope that helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Here's a better look at how the windows were designed around the sink. The countertops and backsplash are local Vermont Danby marble. In addition to the new windows, a carefully planned scheme adds all kinds of lighting options from very bright to a soft glow. It includes a combination of vintage-style glass and brass pendants, small modern LBL lights and a contemporary fabric-covered drum pendant over the table. Pendant Lights: Conant Metal and LightLBL Lights: Bare Head Swivel I
5. Reduce your reliance on paper towels. If you find yourself reaching for a paper towel to clean up every last spill and drip, this may be a tough step to tackle. I recommend stocking up on a huge bundle of dish towels and placing them in strategic spots throughout your kitchen. Even if you keep a roll of paper towels in the closet for extra-messy scenarios, if you can use a cloth towel 75 percent of the time, you will be doing great.
In old Victorian kitchens the tea towels were hung on the stove door, but they usually weren't as pretty as these. Treat your tea towel as an attractive accessory — it's nearly always on show.
