New Apron Front Sink for Retrofitting

Kohler has introduced a new 7-inch apron front sink which is ideal for remodeling homeowners who like to achieve a farmhouse look without replacing their cabinetry.

The Whitehaven sink is still 9 inches deep, but the apron is shortened to fit a standard sink base cabinet. A 9-inch apron front sink is also available for homeowners who prefer the more classic look and plan on adding new cabinetry.

*Plan carefully, this sink will not work with most frameless sink bases found in newer kitchens. Those drawer blanks are usually only 6″ high.*

The Whitehaven sink is made of durable KOHLER Enameled Cast Iron and comes in 16 colors.  MSPR $990.

If you prefer a more modern stainless look in the new shallow front design, check out their Vault sink.

  1. Ann, thanks so much for your great post on Kohler’s new apron-front sinks. I completely agree that it’s always important to measure to make sure the sink and cabinet will be compatible. And while it’s true that our short apron-fronts aren’t the right solution for all frameless sink bases, they are indeed perfect for retrofitting into most existing standard-size cabinetry, including some frameless cabinets. Thanks again!

  2. Its always good to be aware of measurements to make sure the sink you want to purchase is compatible with the area left for the sink installation in kitchen.
