Start with what the sink will be used for
As you start planning your sink installation project, the most important starting point is identifying what the sink will be used for. This should be pretty easy, but is still an important step to cover.
If this is a bathroom sink, you’ll likely be looking for smaller, more elegant sinks. If it’s a kitchen sink, you’ll need something more durable and larger with a wide basin for performing kitchen-related tasks. Utility sinks outdoors or in a garage will likely need to be rugged and withstand a weather or rough use, while also being large to handle all kinds of objects or bucket sizes.
How the sink will be used will also determine fixtures, such as more elegant knobs with bathrooms and more versatile faucets for kitchen sinks that can be extended and have various features.
Plan around the space the sink will be installed into
Next, it’s very important to take into account the space that the sink will be installed into, as well as the surrounding environment.
Consider not only the length and width of the sink, but also the depth, as you will need ample room below the sink for the pipe to drain properly.
While larger sinks can be attractive, it’s important to consider that people will need to use surrounding counter space to perform tasks, so it’s important not to take up too much space to the point that the people using the sink have nowhere else to utilize.
Browse for examples that inspire you
Once you’ve got an idea of how the sink will be used and the space that you can work with comfortably, it’s a good idea to hop online and check out some sink installation examples to see what resonates with you.
Both Pinterest and Instagram are great image-based social media sites that can help you review a broad range of sink installation examples, including the latest trends and popular designs. There are still other resources online as well, including blogs and other social media sites, which may be helpful in your planning phase.
Keep in mind that you’ll want to identify only examples that make sense for your current installation project criteria, including the size you can work with, and the interior design of the room and overall property. There are some really cutting edge designs and visually appealing examples out there, but not all of them will make sense in your specific case.
Check out products
Once you’ve got several examples gathered, go online and check out sink products related to what you like.
If you have the time and ability to go to a physical store and check out products in person, it can also be a great way to interact with the sink products to get a sense for what they’ll feel like and how they’ll perform.
