How to Install an Apron Sink in a Stock Cabinet

Learn how to modify a cabinet to accomidate an apron front sink

When we first started to plan the new kitchen design, one essential element I knew I wanted to include was an apron front sink. I also knew it was going to be a hard sell to my husband. He's not a big fan of the farmhouse style, and has openly expressed his dislike for apron sinks. 

I was planning more of a modern look for the kitchen, and when I showed my husband this stainless steel apron sink from Moen, he could see the vision and agreed. Success! We chose the STo faucet and a modern soap pump, and we were ready to get to work.
