Should I buy a nickel-plated hammered copper farmhouse sink?
It's beautiful, but I'd love to touch and see one before making the big purchase. Is this sink anywhere in my area? Also would love to hear pros and cons from anyone who has actually lived with this sink. Thanks so much for your help!

Beautiful farmhouse sink! When considering a copper sink, there are three main areas you’ll want to look at.
Purity - Be sure it's as close to 100% as possible. (I don't see a problem if it's nickel plated but understand the nickel could wear off.)
Sink gauge or thickness - you’ll want to look for a 14 to 18 gauge sink. (lower the thicker)
How it’s made - Most are hand hammered, which may result in some unique differences or ‘imperfections’ between each sink. But do your research on the brand. Two manufacturers can vary wildly in quality.
That being said you'll have a unique looking sink. Ready to make a bold statement in any kitchen.
