First, consider the space you’ll be installing the sink into
Far too many people start off too eagerly and start looking at sinks before considering the space that the sink will be installed into.
You don’t necessarily need to measure it yourself, but if you’re planning to look at examples of sinks online or in person, you should have some frame of reference in mind for the space the sink will be installed into.
If you choose a sink too large, it won’t be able to fit into the space while if you pick a sink too small there will be gaps and possibly issues with water spillage. You’ll also want to make sure the people who use the sink will have enough room to wash within the basin and to moving freely around the sink.
Consider functionality and the purpose of the sink
The sink you choose of course should depend largely on how it will be used. Sure it’s obvious that a kitchen sink is needed for a kitchen, a bathroom sink is needed for a bathroom, and so on, but there are many other aspects to consider.
For example, some people like a split kitchen sink whereas others may want a deep, wide basin for washing large items. These types of considerations should also be made for the fixtures, as you may want elegant fixtures in some situations and effective, durable fixtures in other cases.
Consider style and materials
Another important set of aspects to consider is style and materials for your sink installation.
Materials not only affect the cost and difficulty of the sink installation, but also the overall feel and experience with the sink. For example, some people prefer a rugged metal in utilitarian scenarios, whereas in other cases a smoother, gentler finish may be more suitable.
In addition to the style of the sink itself, consider also the style of the surroundings where it will be installed. You’ll want to choose materials and styles that match or compliment the surrounding styles, and avoid any styles that may cause awkward or jarring juxtapositions.
Avoid DIY and partner with a quality expert
