There are some real advantages over a regular kitchen sink. Copper is naturally antibacterial. Bacteria and germs can only live on the surface of copper a couple hours. That's pretty amazing compared to the days it can live on a regular kitchen sink surface.
The common copper kitchen sink designs are drop in, under mounted and farmhouse/apron style. Drop in and under mounted copper kitchen sinks feature a rim around the top of the sink, this allows them be mounted under your countertop. However, copper farmhouse sinks, also known as apron sinks, feature a front apron panel that actually is made to stick out past the front of your cabinets, exposing the front part of the sink. Not only does this provide greater functionality for the copper kitchen sink but also adds to the visual aesthetic of your kitchen.
