The Allora USA Retrofit Farmhouse Sink will allow you to achieve an entirely new look without having to spend hundreds of dollars.  Not having to remodel your entire kitchen is a total game-changer! A standard farmhouse sink will require a special sink base cabinet. These cabinets are pricey and require you to remove your existing sink base cabinet. A lot of times you will run into problems. The farmhouse sink base has a flat piece that can be cut to size so that your farmhouse sink has a proper fit. The standard sink base has two false drawers above the functioning doors. The false drawers are designed so that they match the visual design of the cabinet doors. These false doors are easy to remove.

Unlike the typical farmhouse sink, Allora’s Retrofit Farmhouse Sink will fit perfectly on either of these two cabinet styles. The retrofit sink was designed with an apron slide so that the user does not have to cut into their cabinet. It eliminated the need to replace your cabinet.

Choosing The Right Size

The size of your sink will depend on the size of the base cabinet. Most manufacturers will specify what size cabinet their sinks will fit into. In most instances, you will need to purchase a sink that is a bit smaller than the width of the cabinet.

With a drop-in sink, you have the option to choose a larger width because the installation allows the rim of the sink to sit on top of the countertop. There needs to be between 1/2 inch to about 3/4 inch on either side of the sink. This is so that fasteners can be used to secure your sink into place.

Let’s say you have a 36-inch sink base cabinet, you will then choose a sink that is no larger than 34-1/2 inches. With that said it is always wise to verify the manufacturer’s recommended size. If you are still unsure the best thing to do is to call and speak with someone who can assist you.
