A-frame Kitchen Makeover

May 2019

Our friend Liz recently finished a kitchen makeover in her A-frame Airbnb and installed a drop-in copper sink. To check out more about the A-frame follow her at @redaframe on Instagram.

A year and a half ago we purchased a 1965 A-Frame cabin and have been slowly renovating it to modern comforts. The tiny kitchen and sink area were in major need of some updates both functional and cosmetic help. It’s the first time we’ve done anything like this so though challenging at times it’s been incredible seeing the hard work paying off.

The traditional cabin galley kitchen didn’t allow for too much wiggle room but we did our best with a very limited budget. Below are some before images to help capture how big the transformation was with a ton of little updates such as our gorgeous copper Sinkology sink that we love so much.

We needed a sink that would fit the current space perfectly without having to cut into the countertop so as much as I wanted a large farmhouse sink we went for a drop in sink which made the installation process so much easier. We chose a copper sink because it’s masculine but pretty as well as bold. I wanted something different and unique to complement the funky vibe the A frame structure naturally brings so it was a perfect match.

We are so thankful to have come across Sinkology and beyond grateful for the partnership on this project. We chose the All-In-One Sink Design Kit which included the sink, Pfister Faucet, Drain and Breeze Non-Scratch Scrubber. The sink itself was the Rosa Single Bowl 4 hole Drop-In Copper Sink with garbage disposal drain. The sink is gorgeous!

We read up on Copper sinks as well so we knew what we were getting into with regards to copper and it’s ever changing state and how to take care of it. The sink was paired up with the Ashfield 1-Hand Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet and soap dispenser which matched perfectly. We also added the Fuller Copper Kitchen Sink Bottom Grid that we love so much because we can use it as a dry rack and it helps keep dishes and food from sitting directly on the copper sink bottom.

Installation was pretty straight forward. Sinkology provided us with all the informational booklets from installation guide to how to clean sink and register for warranty. It took us a few hours and a run to the local hardware store to get everything in place.

We couldn’t be more delighted on how the sink looks in our new kitchen! Thank you Sinkology!
