Start by considering how the sink will be used
Sinks vary by function. For example, outdoor utility sinks are made from very durable materials to handle wear and tear, whereas kitchen sinks are specifically designed for cooking environments. Bathroom sinks, on the other hand, are usually intended to be more elegant and comfortable to casually use, without any specific working task for perform.

By first defining how the sink will be use, you’ll know what type of basin and fixtures you’ll want to consider as you decide what sink to install.

Plan carefully around the space available
Sinks come in various sizes, and the space that sinks get installed into can also vary in size quite a lot.

When having a new sink installed, it’s important to consider not just the width and length of the sink and the space you’re installing into, but also the depth of the basin and how much space it will allow below it for piping and general storage or free space to work with.

Additionally, consider the surrounding space. For example, in a kitchen or bathroom, you may not want to choose the largest sink physically possible because it could be better to leave a lot of counter space for people to use around the sink for tasks like cooking.

Check out examples of sink installations that you like
Based on what you need the sink to be used for and how much space you have to work with, check out examples of successful sink installations to get a sense of what other people have done successfully.

To accomplish this task, it’s easy to hop online for an hour or two to browse various sink installation photos on Pinterest and Instagram, or other sources like home improvement blogs. By using these valuable online resources, you can quickly check out a huge number of sink installation examples based on your specific search terms, which can be much faster than trying to scour for photos one-by-one.

Be pragmatic and choose enduring options
When it comes to sink installations, remember that above everything else, the sink needs to be practical and useful. A sink that is not useful will pretty much end up a waste and may even need to be quickly replaced.

While choosing what type of sink to have installed at your home, be sure to think practically in terms of function, and choose a style that will endure over time. Choosing something that is too unusual or trendy may become awkward over time if styles change over time. Choosing something general can also be safer if the home needs to be sold or rented out at a later time.
