Planning major home improvements requires a lot of careful thought and consideration, and pursuing a Santa Clara sink installation is no exception. To help guide you through the planning phases of your Santa Clara sink installation project, our team of professional plumbing experts has created this quick guide to help you ensure you get the best sink installation possible.
Start with what kind of sink you need, and who will be using it
We recommend that you start out your planning phase by considering what kind of sink you need, and who will be using the sink.
This may seem clear to many people, but it’s faster to refine your process to focus on specific types of sinks, like bathroom sinks, kitchen sinks, outdoor utility sinks, or any other type of sink.
The function of the sink of course influences the materials used to build it, usually the size and depth of the sink, and how installation will be done, so it’s good to make sure this simple step is checked off first.
Take note of the place where you’ll be having the sink installed
Next, consider the dimensions of the place where you’ll be installing the sink, and the surrounding space.
There’s no point in getting too far into looking at sink products and styles if the examples you look at can’t possibly fit the area you’re working with. Be sure to consider not only width and length, but also height or depth. You’ll want to make sure there’s enough space below for the pipes to function properly.
Make sure you also take into account the space surrounding the sink, which people will need to be able to functionally use. For example, bathrooms may need adequate counter space for toiletries and general usable area. Kitchen sinks typically need a lot of counter space for drying dishes and preparing food. Remember that you don’t need to use every inch of space, especially if that space may be needed for performing other functions.
Check out sink products in person and online
Now that you’ve got an idea about how the sink will be used and what kind of space you’ve got to work with, take a moment to check out sink products available on the market online and if possible in person.
Sinks these days come in a wide range of materials, shapes, sizes and designs. You’ll also want to check out fixtures when relevant, such as ornamental designs for bathrooms and designs that add functionality for kitchen sinks.
Be sure to note several examples of what you like, which you can further refine later as you get closer to finalizing your plans with other factors like time and costs.
