To help make sure you project is a success, our team of plumbing experts has created this simple set of easy ways you can ensure your sink installation project is a success.

Take note of the space the sink will be installed in

First and foremost, it’s crucial to consider the space that the sink will be installed in so you don’t go through the nightmare of needing to return supplies and get a new sink after all your planning has already been completed.

Don’t just think about the width, think also about the depth for the basin and the piping below the sink. Remember that the pipe should be accessible in case anything needs to be cleared out or repairs need to take place along the pipe.

Lastly, make sure that whatever sink you install is comfortable to use within the space that you decide to take up. If you’re installing a surrounding fixture, remember that you don’t necessarily need to use up all the space available. You may want to have some extra open space or additional room for anyone who’s in the room.

Sinks comes in all shapes, sizes and styles

These days, sinks come in all shapes sizes and styles. The combination of these aspects that you choose will likely all come down to what purpose the sink will serve for you on your property.

For example, outdoor sinks may be made of a durable plastic, while indoors sinks may be ceramic or aluminum.

If it’s a kitchen sink, you may or may not want a partition or a garbage disposal. If it’s a bathroom sink, you may want something elegant that matches the style of the bathroom and feels comfortable to wash your face in.

Regardless of what type of sink you may think you want now, you should do some research and collect examples of what you like. You can start with home improvement supply stores or sink product supplier websites, but many people these days use visually-oriented social media sites and apps like Pinterest and Instagram to find what they like most. Remember that not all examples you find will be feasible for your space available, budget, and availability of materials, but it’s still good to collect several examples and then narrow down to the most practical options.
