I’m thinking about replacing our stainless sink, which looks like the one pictured, with a farmhouse apron sink from Ikea. Our counters are black granite and our cabinets are natural wood (we live in a cabin).

I feel like I can never get our stainless looking clean because of our hard water, and the kids are always dumping water on the front countertop. The farmhouse sink looks like it would protect counters a bit more.

What do you think? Which is better for resale value? Which is better for everyday life with kids?
