Farm Sink For 24'' Cabinet Base?


Hey guys,
I have a customer looking for an under mount SS farm style sink that will fit in a base cabinet that is 24''. From what I can find, they are starting at 24'' and will be too wide to fit current situation. Have any of you run into this or know of a good source to remedy this situation?
Thanks,
Norm

Width should work, but I/they are looking for the exposed front apron. Thanks for looking into it and sending the link.

All I can say, is that if I already had a 24" base cab designed for an apron front (has lower mid-rail, shorter doors), I'd get a standard "exactly 24" sink like the Optimum in the picture, and cut the cab down to fit. The sink has rails all around anyways, so its easy-peasy to get good fit & support.

Up here, we tend to call those old white sinks with drainboards "farmhouse" style, and the only thing I could think of what you meant was "deep". My bad.

Re: Farm Sink For 24'' Cabinet Base?


It's all good. I appreciate the help and you taking the time. My issue is is the base one one side has a dishwasher, so it has to fit inside. I would have to have the doors taken off and custom fit them to allow the front apron. To be honest, I think he should take these cabinets out and start over. He is a bit of a hard headed guy who graduated from from Yale and likes to get ideas and see them though. But it seems like I am the one that has to do all the thinking! I fear I am not going to find what he wants and may have to go with an under mount instead.
