3 Ways to Style your Farmhouse Sink with Colors

A farmhouse sink is a beautiful classic fixture for a kitchen remodel.  Keep it looking great by styling it with colors with 3 easy steps. This is a great way to change the look and feel of your kitchen with items you already have on hand.

I chose a Kohler Whitehaven farmhouse sink because the design is so practical and gets the person that is doing dishes closest to the sink. We chose a 33” sink because it matched the largest cabinet we could fit.  It is big enough to hide all of your dishes, including cookie sheets and roasting pans if you don’t get to them.  I clean it with Comet bleach.  I had a Koehler 2-basin sink with the same finish for 15 years, and I scrubbed it with powdered bleach cleanser every day.

Follow these steps to create a beautiful Instagram-worthy vignette.

  • Pick a color, and style with pieces that you use every day.
  • Choose a natural element to repeat the color.  You can use fruit, vegetables, flowers, green plants, or succulents.
  • Drape a towel over the sink in your chosen color.

Color your world boldly.

Tomato Red 

This beautiful style starts with tomatoes that we place on the ledge, which we do all the time to get them to ripen.  We draped a kitchen towel over the farmhouse sink with tomatoes on it.  I bought this towel at the Magnolia Market at the Silos, and I use it every day.  A pitcher with red flowers was used as a vase, and my i-pad with a red cover snuck into the picture.  And, Voila!  Red was the color of the day.

Lemon Yellow

A sunny style shows lemons on the window ledge.  We draped a kitchen towel over the farmhouse sink with complimentary green basil.  I bought this towel at the Magnolia Market at the Silos, and I use it every day.  A Tuscan kitchen tool canister is handy next to the sink.  The yellow olive oil canister that gets used every day was a useful and beautiful touch.  Gorgeous yellow roses were dropped into a white pitcher that was repurposed as a vase.  Simple and easy, it took me 5 minutes to style with some of my everyday pieces.

Organic Green

This calm and quiet style was all about plants..  We perched a pretty trio of succulents on the window ledge. The green basil kitchen towel stayed draped over the farmhouse sink.   I dropped a synthetic Ikea green plant into a coffee mug and displayed my favorite bowl of succulents next to the farmhouse sink.   Again, I used my favorite pieces and things to make this pretty.

The Bottom Line

Use your beautiful farmhouse sink to display your favorite things and the kitchen tools that you use every day.  The farmhouse sink is like a small stage that makes everything look beautiful.  Don’t forget to use natural elements when you style, like plants, flowers, and fruit or vegetables that need to ripen next to the window.
