I’m a sucker for a pretty faucet + farmhouse sink and have always dreamed of the pretty pairing in my kitchen. But, when we decided to go with Formica 180fx Calacatta Marble for our countertops instead of quartz/marble, that dream went out the window! At the time (or maybe I just didn’t know), there was not a farmhouse sink that was a drop-in style to work with laminate. Lucky for me, Sinkology makes the Josephine QuickFit Drop-In Fireclay Farmhouse Sink and those dreams are now a reality! And I’m so giddy over it. Paired with Pfister’s Port Haven Bridge Kitchen Faucet in Brushed Gold, it’s the prettiest pairing. I’m obsessed to say the very least!
Sinkology’s Josephine sink is perfect for anyone who is not quite ready to get new countertops. We will one day upgrade to quartz or marble, but for now, I am perfectly fine keeping ours a little longer since I have my dream faucet + sink! It’s also affordable + easy to install (I’ll get to the installation part soon!). The Josephine is made to fit seamlessly into your existing cabinets + countertops and is made with fireclay material. The fireclay is fired with temperatures that reach 2100*F to blend clay + glaze and create a dense, ultra-durable material. It also has a lifetime warranty + is guaranteed to not chip, crack, stain, or rust!
I love that Sinkology offers an all-in-one kit that comes with the sink, a Pfister faucet, sink bottom grid, sink disposal flange drain with stopper and the Fireclay CareIQ Kit! We went with Pfister’s Port Haven faucet in brushed gold and could not be happier. I love the look of it and it works so well, is made of quality materials + was easy to install. I would definitely recommend Sinkology + Pfister to anyone who is looking for a durable farmhouse sink that can work with laminate countertops and a quality faucet!
Now on to how we installed our sink + faucet! My husband is (thankfully) very handy and did everything himself! I will outline below the steps that he took so that you, too, can do it yourself. I’ve also included the timelapse video we took of the process!
-unhook the water supply/drain lines and remove the garbage disposal
-remove sink fasteners, silicone caulking around the edges of the sink and the sink itself
-lay masking tape on the countertop + face of cabinets where your cuts will be
-cut the counter with a jigsaw tool + then use an oscillating tool for the hard to reach areas
-test fit the sink + make adjustments as needed
-lay caulking around the edges where the sink will sit
-set the sink permanently
-caulk the outside edges of the sink
-install the faucet + garbage disposal
-hook back up the water supply/drain lines
-we later added the faucet sprayer but had to cut a hole for it with a porcelain drill bit
-finally, enjoy it!
We are truly obsessed with our Sinkology sink + Pfister faucet! Combined, they really upped the aesthetic of our kitchen and I would take on this project again and again. Not only are their products high quality but they are the prettiest. We couldn’t be more happy with our farmhouse sink + faucet of our dreams!
I hope you have the best week… thanks for stopping by!
