Kohler Whitehaven Sink Offers Apron-Front Style with Double-Basin Design

Whitehaven_Smart Divide_sink_1In an effort to provide consumers with options that fit their design preference and lifestyle, Kohler Co. added a double-basin to its line of Whitehaven apron-front, farmhouse style sinks. The half-saddle design allows users to easily fit and move large pots and pans around, and still fill a basin with soapy water. By designing the divider to be lower than traditional basin dividers, the sink is better suited to accommodate larger pots and pans with extended handles. The challenge with apron-front sinks has usually been installation, which often required replacing cabinetry. To alleviate this concern, the Whitehaven Self-Trimming apron-front Smart Divide kitchen sink is offered with a 7-in. apron, which is ideal for homeowners who want to achieve a farmhouse look without replacing their cabinetry, along with a conventional 9-in. apron, which fits on an apron-front sink base cabinet. The sink basin is 9-in.-deep on both versions.

The self-trimming apron feature on this sink only requires a rough cut to the cabinet for installation. And because it is made from cast iron, the installer can be assured that the dimensions are perfect every time and that it will install with a predictable fit and finish. No additional trim work or caulking to fill cut lines is necessary.

Kohler enameled cast iron is guaranteed not to chip, crack or burn and comes in 18 colors to create a personalized focal point in the kitchen. The sinks are made from at least 80 percent recycled materials.
