One of the most popular ways local homeowners boost the value and livability of their homes is by starting a well-planned Los Gatos sink installation project. If you’re intending to pursue your own Los Gatos sink installation project, use these 5 simple best practices to guide your project into the right direction.

Best Practice Number 1: Plan for people first
The most important measure of whether or not your sink installation is successful is whether or not the people using the sink can do so effectively and enjoyably. Therefore, when planning your sink installation project, it’s important to think about who will be using the sink and how they will need to use it.

For example, a kitchen sink has very different functional requirements compared to a bathroom sink or an outdoor or laundry room utility sink. In addition, some people may be very particular about the space they need and the functionality of the sink fixtures, such as experienced chefs who have particular needs around their working space.

At the very least, it’s best to think about who will be using the sink and what they’ll need to use it for, and in some cases it may be best to talk directly to the people who will be using the sink to get their direct input as well.

Best Practice Number 2: Identify designs that you like
Another best practice that we highly recommend is to identify examples of designs that you like before you settle on a decision and move forward in your sink installation project.

A great way to do this is by going to visually-driven social media platforms like Pinterest in Instagram, where you can check out a vast range of trending designs and concepts.

Start by gathering a broad range of examples, which you can later narrow down based on additional parameters, like the space you’re installing the sink into, the design of the overall room the sink will be installed into, your budget, and other considerations.

Best Practice Number 3: Check out products on the market
After checking out various examples of sink designs, it’s also useful to educate yourself about the various sink products on the market. What you see in a photo from a social media post can be quite different from what the sink actually feels like to interact with, so it’s often best to go to a showroom and feel out the products, or at least read about them in terms of their dimensions, the materials used to build them, cost, durability, and other details.

Best Practice Number 4: Consult with a pro
Perhaps the most important step to take in any successful sink installation project is to make sure a well-qualified person is leading the project. At Performance Plumbing, we have one of the most proficient, experienced teams around for sink installation projects, so we highly recommend working with a team of equal caliber.

Best Practice Number 5: Use a free estimate to confirm you’re ready to move forward
