Consider how the sink will be used
When planning a sink installation project, it’s important to start by considering how the sink will be used. For example, a bathroom sink will likely be small and elegant, while an outdoor utility sink should be rugged and practical, without ornate fixtures that could break off. In between are other types of sinks, such as kitchen sinks that need to be a compromise between utility and aesthetic attractiveness.
Defining what the sink will be used for at the beginning of your project will help you ensure you narrow down the range of possibilities only to what makes the most sense based on your specific needs.
Think about the space you’ll be installing the sink into
Related to how the sink will be used, you’ll need to also consider the space that you’re going to be installing the sink into to ensure that it not only fits the space available, but also fits in a way that will be comfortable for anyone using the sink.
For example, kitchen sinks generally need a lot of space around them to set down dishes, drying racks, towel dispensers, and small appliances. It’s important to make sure your sink doesn’t dominate the entire counter space, and allows for enough usable space nearby. Similarly, bathroom sinks need to allow for counter space, and generally do not need to be very large.
When preparing to choose sink designs for your sink installation, be sure to make sure you pick designs that fit into the space available and provide enough room for the user to comfortably maneuver in the nearby space and utilize the surrounding area.
Find a few examples of what you like
After you’ve got a sense of how the sink will be used and what space you can comfortably work with, you can start hunting for examples of sink designs that you like.
As you begin, you can cast a wide net and collect a wide range of examples that you think you might like. As you get deeper into the process, you can weed out any examples that you’re not super keen on or might not be a perfect fit, and refine down to only the best, most suitable examples in your estimation.
While going into a physical store is a great way to get a sense of materials, designs and models available, you can also go online and check out social media platforms like Pinterest and Instagram to quickly review a wide range of sink installation examples. However, keep in mind that many of the examples posted online may be weighted towards visually interesting designs that may not always be practical, so try to critically consider each example that you review.
