If you’ve ever had to replace a bathroom or kitchen sink, you know that the whole process is a lot harder and more stressful that one might initially think it is. There are so many variations of sinks nowadays that it can make finding the perfect new sink for you a chore.
At McLoughlin Plumbing Heating Air Conditioning, we feel that picking out a new sink should be the fun part of home renovation! That’s why we’ve come up with a few tips to help you find the perfect toilet, at a price you can feel good about, and get it installed in your home!
There Are so Many Kinds of Sinks to Research
Ain’t that the truth! There are a number of styles of sinks to choose from that come in different colors and types of materials.
Choosing the perfect sink for you has a lot to do with your lifestyle, so researching online can help you to understand how each different type of kitchen or even bathroom sink might fit into your life.
If you are someone who likes to entertain, and are therefore always in your kitchen and always have a mountain of dishes in your sink, you may want to invest in a double bowl sink that is larger and deeper than say a bar sink, for example, for your kitchen. If you live alone and really only accumulate a few dishes throughout the day, then you may prioritize a smaller, single bowl drainboard sink.
When it comes to your bathroom sink, you can afford to make decisions more for aesthetic purposes. For example, if you want to modernize the look of your bathroom, you might consider a sleek, contemporary-looking vessel sink. If you prefer a more classic and elegant look, a pedestal sink is also a good choice.
Understanding Sink Cost
On the topic of fitting your lifestyle to your sink, remember that if you are working within a budget, you may have to sacrifice some of the bells and whistles.
The national average range for kitchen or bathroom sink installation is from $200 to $600 (approximately).
The more features and high-tech capabilities your sink has, the more involved the installation will be, making the sink itself more expensive.
