we are about to begin a major re-haul of our house, incl kitche. My husband wants to encorporate the old sink into the new kitchen. Is this a good idea, I think it will be hard to build a kitchen around that?

I love older fixtures like that. They have character. Older styled new stuff can be purchased, but you already have the original. It's probabley made much better than the new stuff as well. So is your concern from a design point of view?

Yes my main concern is how encorporate it in a modern yet classic kitchen. It is a nice sink, we just would have to get it re-furbished.

Hi Julie,

Will you be using a kitchen designer? If so they will be able to let you know how best to incorporate your old sink. I think it's a great idea to use it especially if it is original to the house.

Yes, I agree with Mary. A designer may have software that will allow you to see what your plans would look like.

That's a good idea. An old sink could look good but it's hard to say unless you have a really good idea of what you would like to have the kitchen to turn out like. A lot of older appliances do have a lot of character so I would suggest at least not just throwing it out.
