Farm Living with BLANCO is the Life for Me…

Green acres is the place for me
Farm livin’ is the life for me.
Land spreadin’ out so far and wide.
Keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside.
New York is where I’d rather stay.
I get allergic smelling hay.
I just adore a penthouse view.
Dah-ling I love you but give me Park Avenue.
…The chores.
…The stores.
…Fresh air.
…Times Square
You are my wife.
Good bye, city life.
Green Acres we are there.”

If only that zany duo from the hit 1960’s American TV Show Green Acres had known about BLANCO’s new farmhouse sink, they might have avoided years of misadventures in television as they coped with leaving a life of luxury in the city and retreating to the country and the farm life! With BLANCO, City Meets Country with the BLANCO CERANA™ Apron Front Fireclay Sink.

You can keep that penthouse view and still enjoy the rustic charm of a country style home achieving a look that The Antiques Diva® & Co loves – mixing the past and present for today’s living!

Traditionally the farmhouse sink was all about the chores – and thus, it had to be built to withstand heavy use in cooking, cleaning, and farm chores. BLANCO’s new farmhouse sink adds that same utilitarian functionality – they’ve reinvented fireclay for the modern kitchen. Crafted with artisan hand-finishing techniques and high firing temperatures, CERANA™ delivers an extremely lustrous and durable surface that won’t stain, chip or fade. And their German engineering is the foundation for their “perfect-drain” bowl, which allows for easy draining from the sink base and no puddling of water. Whereas most sinks stop at the edge of the countertop, the farmhouse kitchen sink has an apron bib that extends down the front, adding to the durability of the sink combining aesthetic and utilitarian value!

And should you want a pinch of Park Avenue home on the range, then this sink can do contemporary… With two different corner styles, CERANA can be installed with the rounded edge out to bring a touch of traditional or with the contoured front for a contemporary look! With one large basin The CERENA Apron Front Fireclay Sink features the traditional farmhouse large basin to accommodate the large, heavy pots and pans used in cooking and chores, making it both practical as well as pretty! With the flexibility BLANCO offers, the only thing left for you to decide is where you want to install that sink? In the country? Or the city?
