Tip 1: First, find what you like
These days, there are a ton of free, convenient resources online where you can draw inspiration from by finding examples of sink installations that you like.
Look for examples on home improvement blogs, Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook and beyond. These websites and apps are loaded with beautiful visual examples that are easy and quick to browse.
Be sure to note or save the examples that you like, and go through a large set of examples to collect a healthy group of items you like. You’ll want to spend a decent amount of time browsing and avoid rushing through the process, which could run the risk of choosing to hastily and missing out on all the options.
Tip 2: Consider the constraints
Finding examples of what you like is a great first step, but after that it’s time to optimize for what is most suitable and feasible for the conditions you’re working with.
Consider the space that you’ll be installing the sink into ‒ not just the width and length for the opening of the sink, but even the space below it. Other constraints also include the budget you can work with, the materials and style of the area that surrounds the sink, and how much time it would take to install the sink you’re considering.
Use these constraint considerations to narrow down your initial list to cross-reference the examples that you like with the most feasible among them.
Tip 3: Think of who will be using the sink
Next, consider the people who will actually be using the sink. Chances are you’re not the only person who will be using the sink, or you might not be the primary user at all! Be sure to solicit input from the people who will use it most frequently, and listen carefully to what they have to say. You don’t have to follow their opinions completely, but you may find that they have some very valuable insight to contribute, and if they’re using the sink more than you are, you may need to consider their comfort as a priority.
Also consider who will be using the sink in the future. If you think you’ll end up selling the house at any point in the future, you may want to choose a sink style and configuration that isn’t too risky and will be generally acceptable for anyone buying or renting the house.
