The only difference between an apron sink and a regular sink is that the front of the sink is designed to be visible. There is no difference in the quality of sink or the type of plumbing you can use with the sink. You do need to modify your sink base to accommodate the new sink, but this is easy to accomplish by removing the false drawer fronts from your base and opening up that area.
Can I use a garbage disposal with an Apron Sink
Many of our copper apron sinks can be used with a garbage disposal. If you look at the description of the individual sinks, it has a statement under the features that shows whether a garbage disposal can be used with that sink. You also have to check the drain size to make sure, that your current plumbing will fit the sink or if you will have to purchase new piping for your kitchen.
