We recently completed a kitchen update for our 1784 Northern New England Farmhouse & this sink is the best. The look is very upscale, but not too "modern". We added granite countertops & since our stove & frig were already stainless steel, this sink with the apron front was the most appropriate addition. Since our contractor installed the sink, I can not commend on ease of assembly. My only wish is for Overstock to carry the "sink protector" to help reduce scratches/rust stains. I've tried some sink mat type things, but they get soiled easily & move around too much...with all this said, I would highly recommend this sink without reservations.
