Have not read all the comments, but when purchasing for my own home, or working with clients, I research the depth of the sink and base it on the height of the user. Consider that if you use a 1.5" counter depth (typical butcher block or granite), and you choose a sink that is 9" deep, when you under mount it, the total depth will be 10.5". So, if you are short, or shall I say height challenged (:) ), take that into consideration. I have had a clay fired single bowl farmhouse sink in my personal home since 2008; I love the look, but will go stainless next time. I have to be careful with it and that aggravates me.

As for single bowl vs. double, I definitely prefer single, the larger the better. When researching, make sure you check to see where the drain is. I prefer them to be offset to the right or left, which means you take up less space under the sink, and they drain better. Some of them come with the drain in the middle/rear; these are desirable if other aspects of that particular sink suits you, but the left or right drains are the best, in my opinion.

I never thought about the drain affecting where the pipes will be. What an excellent insight. Thank you!
