    Around here, the chrome waist/drain is about half the wall thickness when you buy them from the big box stores as they were 50 years ago. Cleaning chemicals, even Dawn soap, tend to eat through them quite fast. Just make sure you watch the plumber so you can replace it yourself when the time comes.

    Thanks for the expertise, Fred - that's definitely something I would never have thought of.

    Hello jyy65r & bubblyjock, the maker of the discontinued faucet is Concinnity. There are some replacement parts and some other faucets I've found online from Concinnity, but I did not find any similar to this model. Good luck!

    Rohl makes faucets like this. And a few other manufacturers.

    I'm sorry to say we don't have a brand name for the sink, but we found it at Rejuvenation's salvage yard here in Portland, a 1940's model.

    seolrse, thanks for asking! Anne designed the cabinet on the left in this photo with double doors, so they can fully open without hitting the side of the sink wall cabinets. Just like you, she did not want a corner cabinet with a lazy susan, and she says she has never regretted it.

    Hello, thanks for your question, Cabinetry Of Pinehurst. I believe this is a combination of blocking in the wall and sink brackets supporting the wall-mounted sink.

    Thanks for your question, davescarrot.

    We were not necessarily trying to give it an “undermount” look,
    but we wanted to make sure there was no gap between the counter and sink so we
    could just wipe stuff right into the sink.

    With this type of installation,
    everyone needs to be on the same page, as there is no room for error. From the
    plumbing coming out of the wall, to the cabinet height, to the bolt up of the
    sink, etc, planning is the most important part. With that, a neat end
    product was easy to accomplish.

    And don’t forget about expansion and
    contraction. All of these dis-similar materials like to move around at
    different rates, so give yourself a nice reveal. Send me a picture when you are

Becky Harris added this to How to Fix a Stinky Garbage DisposalMar 25, 2015

Developing good habits can prevent this problem in the future. Be extra careful of potato skins, fruit peels (except those few bits of lemon peel you’ll use to maintain it), corn husks and pits, as they can dull and jam the blades. Keep a perforated drain cover over the disposal most of the time to catch things that shouldn’t go into the disposal.Scrape your plates into the compost bin or trash before doing dishes. The extra benefit of developing a composting system is that it’s great for your garden. Get on a Composting Kick

Jennifer Ott Design added this to Designing Your Kitchen: How to Choose a Sink SizeJul 30, 2013

Size your sink to be a focal point. If you opt to go with an extra-wide sink, it’s going to be difficult to disguise it. My advice is to take the opposite approach and make your wide sink a focal point. Repurpose an interesting salvaged sink or consider an unusual material, like copper.Shop copper kitchen sinks on Houzz

"We wanted cool colors that have a warm feeling," says Anne. Gray-blue tile and soft yellow Venetian-plastered walls complement the natural wood floors and walnut lower cabinets. Backsplash: Roku, Walker Zanger; sink: 1940s antique; garbage cans: Cost Plus

No cabinet under sink. Use space for other things

Anna Dorwart added this to Anna's ideasApr 4, 2019

Kitchen sink idea. Open below and simple cabinets

HU-257695683 added this to KitchenMar 24, 2019

Open like this would be good for wet kitchen

PollyG added this to Kitchen, dining and living rooms combinedJan 13, 2019

I love clean lines of the large sink and storage. The simple bin system is practical and self explanatory. A basket could be used for recycling. This would work best in kitchens that have plenty of storage.
