In our many years of serving the Bay Area, we’re proud to have become one of the leading names in Berkeley sink installation projects. As an expert in Berkeley sink installation projects, our team of home improvement plumbing specialists has decided to put together these quick pro tips to help customers like you get the best sink installation possible.

Tip 1: Consider where you’ve installing the sink

The type of sink that you select is likely going to be different based on the location you install it in. For example, a utility sink in a garage or outdoor location may need to be more rugged and weather-proof than an indoor sink. A sink for your kitchen may need to be able to accommodate your kitchenware comfortably, while a sink for your bathroom may need to be comfortable for activities like washing your face or hands.

Most of our customers are installing sinks on residential property, but if your property is for commercial business, your requirements may also be more functional and practical rather than ornamental in some cases.

Tip 2: Consider the size and shape of the space and sink

Aside from the type of location that the sink will be installed into, consider also the size and shape of the space where it will go, which will determine the size and space of sink that you should select to install.

When it comes to size and shape, this refers not only to the width and length of the sink, but also the depth of the basin. One of the more annoying issues you can run into when selecting a sink is picking one with a basin that won’t fit the height of the area you’re installing into, where piping will need to connect.

Tip 3: Consider what fixtures and materials you prefer

Take a look at some of the products out there for examples of fixtures and materials that you prefer. You may want to check out photo-driven social media platforms like Instagram and Pinterest, where a lot of people have already put in a ton of time and effort into choosing sinks that they believe are attractive or appealing.

Compile a solid range of examples of what you like, and then start narrowing down based on what you’ve got to work with in terms of size and shape, as well as budgeting.

Tip 4: Consider maintenance

It’s important to consider the functional value of the sink over time, which includes maintenance. Be sure to pick a design that itself is easy to maintain and also will be easy to work with when it comes to the piping below the sink. While some sinks may look really nice, if they’re too elaborate or have complicated parts, they can break more easily or require more distinct components to be maintained, repaired or replaced over time.

Tip 5: Work with a good plumbing expert
