Finding The Right Sink For You

Finding The Right Sink For You

Are you looking for a new kitchen plumbing or bathroom sink that will be the right fit for your home? Choosing a sink can be a bit more complicated than most people realize, as they now come in so many different shapes, sizes, designs, and even colors.

When choosing your new sink, you should take into consideration not only the current trends in home decor, but also your personal style, your budget, and what is available to you from your local plumbing stores.

Knight Plumbing has assembled some information to help you shop for and find a bathroom or kitchen sink that is just the right fit for your home!

Research Different Kinds of Sinks

Are you looking for a kitchen or bathroom sink? How much space can you afford for your sink to take up? Do you want a stand-alone sink or a vanity with cabinets and drawers?

There are two ways you can research sinks: online and in person. The first thing you should do is begin your research by looking into what all the options are, and narrowing your search to sinks that fit into your budget, your taste, and that can best accommodate your lifestyle.

Once you have a better idea of what you might be looking for, you can head to your local hardware store or plumbing store showroom to look at some models of sinks in person. This will give you a better idea of the look and feel of your sink in a real, three-dimensional way.

How Much Does Your Sink Cost?

Installation of a new sink can cost anywhere from $200 to over $500, depending on the style and size of the sink, as well as the complexity of the installation job.

Keep in mind that adding elaborate faucets and faucet handles can increase the cost of your sink. Assessing the value of a sink really comes down to weighing the cost versus the amenities it provides.

If you are not someone who spends a lot of time in the kitchen cooking up elaborate dishes, then a more expensive farmhouse sink may not be worth the cost. If you don’t need/ won’t use the extra cabinet space under your bathroom sink, a pedestal sink may be of more value to you.

Ask Your Local Plumbing Store

If you’re still unsure about what type of sink would be best in your bathroom or kitchen, the experts at your local plumbing store can also offer more insight to help you find the right sink for you.
