3 Simple Steps to Finding The Perfect Sink


Are you on the hunt for the perfect sink to complement your kitchen plumbing or bathroom installations? If so, you may have learned that finding a perfect kitchen or bathroom sink is more trouble than you initially thought. That’s because there are so many variations of sinks available to you today and it can be a bit overwhelming if you don’t know exactly what you are looking for.

If you have become exasperated with your search, don’t worry! Superior Plumbing, Heating & Air-Conditioning, Inc has come up with three simple steps that will help you find that perfect bathroom or kitchen sink.

Do Your Sink Research

sinkresearchStep one is to do as much research as you can into the different variations of sink.

The first thing you will learn is that kitchen sinks, and bathroom sinks are totally separate categories.

You will also learn that within those categories there are different styles of sinks that can be made from a number of different materials.

In the category of bathroom sinks, you will find drop-in sinks, and pedestal sinks are the most popular styles, with vessel sinks rising in popularity over the last several years. Stainless steel under-mount sinks are popular for kitchen uses, though, in recent years, porcelain top mount farmhouse sinks have risen grown in their popularity as well.

Assess The Sink Cost

On average, the total cost of the sink (including installation) can fall anywhere between $200 and $550. The actual price will depend on the material your sink is made of, the style of sink you have chosen, and the complexity of the installation job.

If you are working within a budget, you may want to sit down and ask yourself how much you are willing to spend for various features. For example, are you willing to pay more for a pedestal sink to give yourself more floor space in your bathroom?

Are you ready to sacrifice the convenience of a touch or motion sensored faucet for your kitchen sink to save some money? These are the questions you’ll need to consider before settling on a perfect sink.

Make Sure Your Local Plumbing Store Offers What You Need

We recommend making a trip down to the plumbing store at some point before purchasing your sink so that you can see the sink in person and get a better idea of what it will look like in your bathroom.

The associates at the plumbing store can also provide more information about their installation services.
