Steps to buying a kitchen sink

Like if this guide is helpful

A few things to consider when buying your new kitchen sink

  • Ensure the sink will fit the base unit. Most sinks require a minimum base unit of 600mm, but always check the sink you wish to purchase will fit the base unit.
  • Choose a drainer side, this often can allow space for washing machines etc. below the drainer
  • Narrow your search by choosing a style of sink e.g. undermount, inset, sit on etc.
  • Choose a finish e.g stainless steel, ceramic or composite  
  • Consider specifics such as number of tap holes etc. if a bridge tap or bespoke installation is required
  • Does the sink come with any extras such as pop up wastes, chopping boards etc. If not and these are required, are they available as optional extras, or is it worth considering another model?
  • If replacing an existing sink, ensure the cut out is the same or can be adapted before the installation 
  • Ensure to read and follow any aftercare instructions to prolong the life of your sink. Some sinks may require special cleaning solutions depending on the finish.
