Collect and review examples
When you pursue your sink installation, you’ll want to make sure that the results live up to your expectations for enhancing your property. In order to plan for the end result that you want, take some time at the start of the project to collect and review examples of sink installations that you like.

Sink installation examples are easy to find on Pinterest, Instagram, Google Image Search, home improvement blogs and other resources. Social media services like Facebook or forums can also help you see what home improvement professionals and enthusiasts are doing to solve their sink installation needs.

Browse a wide range of the possibilities and then whittle down the results into a handful of examples that you like. In the next steps you’ll further refine your choices.

Consider fit for style and space
Take a look at the examples you found and compare them to the room where you plan to install the sink.

Make sure the concept you’re looking at fits the space both in terms of size and style. The last thing you want to do is choose a sink that will be impossible to install, or will look awkwardly too large or small, or have a style that awkwardly conflicts with the surrounding room.

By considering the fit for the style and space of the room, you can further remove sink installation examples that won’t best address your needs.

Utility for users
It’s also important to consider the intended use of the sink you’re installing, because in the end your sink needs to be useful to the people using it.

Consider what the sink will be used for. Bathroom sinks can be more elegant and ornamental, whereas kitchen sinks should be more durable, deep and wide to allow for comfortable kitchen-related duties like cooking, filling large pots, washing vegetables, washing dishes and other similar tasks.

In some cases, sinks should even be highly rugged and designed to withstand weather and a lot of wear and tear, such as utility sinks in garages or outdoors.

When reviewing the examples you found, be sure to remove any examples that won’t satisfactorily serve the needs of the people who will rely on the sink for the activities they need to carry out.

Select the right professional
The person who installs your sink is usually just as important as the sink you’re installing, if not more important.

Who strongly recommend against using unlicensed or uninsured workers who are not professional home improvement plumbers. These works may be unqualified to perform the work needed, and if anything goes wrong, you may be stuck with an expensive bill to repair damages.

Instead, choose a fully licensed and insured plumber who has a strong track record for customer satisfaction on websites like Yelp. Our team at Performance Plumbing has worked hard to earn our strong reputation as quality home improvement plumbers and we’re always happy to provide information about our license and insurance, so we believe you should have the same high level of standards.
