Hi everyone - this is my first "official" post on the kitchens board as I'm usually just a lurker.
We are gearing up to re-do the kitchen. 1972's original. My preference is for a large farm style sink. Any opinions out there on choosing a copper finish rather than a stainless or enamel sink with regard to practicality? Easy to clean or does it get dinged up pretty quick? Pic below is just an example - I've found dozens of others online...
Gee, I'm sorry, I don't - I do know she ordered it from a place in AZ and it was far less (and, IIRC, had free shipping) than many other places. This gal is so chea..uh, FRUGAL, she squeaks when she walks but appreciates quality. She's out of town on a family emergency right now so is unavailable to ask. Do a LOT of shopping - I love the copper look, too and think it's really warm.
I don't know if it's practical or not, but it's sure pretty! I guess "practical" would depend on whether you want it shiny, shiny - or if you like it aged to perfection with a bit of tarnish...which would be my choice - I would hate to have to polish that sucker every week!
Just a little side note here...DD's firm did a "Parade Home" and installed a very pricey copper farm sink in the kitchen. For whatever reason, the inspector did not pass it and made them take it out. This was a new house, so maybe a remodel is safe? Wish I could remember why it was a problem....senior moment, I guess.
Anyone else have an issue, or know why it might be one?

I have copper vessel sinks in the bath.... kinda rustic spa thing. Very easy to care for. I love copper.. I used it on my island... it's nothing short of a workhorse... Having copper is like having stained concrete floor... they will change each day... so be sure you can live with those things. Becky
