Repurposing a salvaged sink Traditional Kitchen, Burlington

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.

I love the kitchen esp the sink! Has it been reglazed and is the faucet practical? - We own a salvage sink just like this (except one side is deeper than the other). Do you have a source for reglazing? Also, I really love the faucet and I'm wondering if the homeowner finds it practical. I cook a lot (and consequently do tons of dishes) and just want to be sure that works for them.

I have a wall mount faucet and it is like any other faucet cook a lot or not. I love mine. Some people (contractors) don't like them, but that is preference only. Will leave my faucet on the wall because I feel, why fix something that works great and it's beautiful? I have replaced it once with another wall mount faucet. Noticed Home Depot and plumbing storesare carrying these again and the price of this type of faucet is good.

Careful, not everywhere carries all the original parts - less expensive can end up being more expensive in the long run because cheaper parts are used.

Sink Found! - I fell in love with this kitchen sink a couple of years ago and have been on the look out for something similar, as have many of you. Voila! A reproduction sink with very similar dimensions can be found at NBI Drainbord sinks. (See web address below). They are able to accommodate garbage disposals and look to be VERY indestructible. I will be ordering one when we build our new house this fall. Thought others might be interested in exploring this option. http://nbidrainboardsinks.com/?product=model-dbr5125

Thanks so much for the tip about NBI drain board sinks! You're right! It's the closest I can find to what this picture shows. I just ordered the 42" sink and can't wait to get it. We also tried to duplicate the windows so I hope it comes out close to this picture!

I have this sink in a single bowl model (needs resurfacing but I have a source who did our bathtub 10 years ago and it still looks great so I could refer you to them) that I was going to use but opted for stainless instead. Mine's available for $400 plus shipping or you can pick it up in Cartersville, GA. You can reach me through my ad on Craig's list at http://atlanta.craigslist.org/nat/app/4390582078.html

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

Additional response to the question of single basin availability.
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.

This sink is 51 inches long.
I think if you are careful the dandy marble can be terrific. You will need to be aware of lemon juice or other acidic substances potentially eating at the marble - that can be quite damaging.

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.

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.

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!

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!

Can this sink accommodate a garbage disposal? - I have been in contact with a salvage shop selling the same/very similar sink. They said this sink cannot have a garbage disposal due to the fact that the drains are both to small. Is this the case for this kitchen sink? Can the drain size be altered somehow?? Thank you!

Being on a septic system - very typical for small towns around here - this hasn't come up. It could be altered, but sounds very expensive.

There isn't a good image that shows the fridge, but in the right side of this image you can see a part of the range hood, to the right of the range is another couple feet of counter, cabinets & window and then to the right of that is the fridge. You can get a sense from this exterior shot:

You can see the range vent location between windows. Here the fridge is to the left of the single window to the left of the vent.

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.

You will find this in other posts for other images of this kitchen, but these pendants are brass pendants with vintage glass originally from Conant Custom Brass in Vermont. 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!

We mounted these using LBL's 4 inch round flush mount canopy (in the finish you want) and you can get 6" extensions, but we went with a 1" leg on these fixtures.

Where did you get the towel bar for the front of the sink? - It seems that a standard bath towel rack might be too far away from the sink for this to work. Yet, I would LOVE to have this option! Thank you!

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.

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.
Julia Pockett added this to Accessorize a Traditional Kitchen the Beautiful, Practical Way
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.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to How to Keep Your White Kitchen White
I would die for this sink. Until it started to look like I actually used it, that is. The white sinks in my home take approximately five minutes to look yucky. You can brighten them and remove stains with common household bleach. Experts suggest laying paper towels flat across the bottom of the sink and wetting them with bleach. This prevents the bleach from running straight down the drain. Leave the paper towels in place for half an hour to allow the bleach to do its job, then remove them and rinse the sink thoroughly with warm water. For a more natural solution, fill the sink with club soda and lemon juice and let this mixture lift the stains as it soaks in. After you empty the sink, apply straight lemon juice directly to any stubborn stains. You may have to repeat this process several times.If this sounds like way too much work, adopt my husband’s favorite tool: Bar Keepers Friend. If you use it on your sink every day, no other upkeep will be required. (I use it on way more than my sink; it keeps pots and pans looking like new as well.)

Bryan Anthony added this to How to Properly Light Your Kitchen Counters
5. Sink and Range LightingIf you’re washing your dishes by hand, it’s nice to actually see what you’re doing. For nighttime illumination, don’t add just one small recessed light or pendant light above your sink and call it day. Instead, add multiple lights over your sink, as shown in this kitchen designed by Smith & Vansant Architects PC.Pay attention to lighting when purchasing your range hood as well. Depending on the width of your cook surface, 750 to 1,000 lumens of high-quality light is a good starting point.
