Butler sinks, farmhouse sinks or apron sinks are becoming more and more popular in today’s kitchens. They provide ample space for various cooking activities which just makes your life so much easier. Butler sinks come in various materials; engineered stone is more friendly towards glass since it does not break that easily, however, a more robust sink made from fire-clay with acid resistant wastes would be a better option for industrial situations. Lab sinks are actually butler sinks but are made from fire-clay. Initially they were used in hospitals and laboratories and now they have become the central feature in any kitchen.
