In short, yes it is possible but the existing kitchen cabinets will need to be reworked. Please consult your kitchen installer.
Some important points to keep in mind:
- Traditional farmhouse sinks are heavy and need to be supported, hence, a support structure will need to be built.
- Due to the depth of most farmhouse sinks (about 9-10" deep), the cabinet doors will need to be cut down and repainted or replaced.
- The front face of the cabinet will need to be reworked and a new piece of trim made and added to the cabinet.
- Make sure the sink is completely level from the top and bottom. You can use shims to make adjustments.
- Be prepared to remove or replace the entire countertop and possibly re-plumb your drain lines.
- Typically, the size of the cabinet recommended is 3 inches larger than the size of the sink (check manufacture recommendation)
- For an easier install solution, take a look at our collection of retro-fit farmhouse sinks that can be installed in existing standard kitchen cabinets. These options have shorter aprons.
