FINDING THE BEST SINK FOR YOUR HOME
When you need to replace a sink, it is unlikely that you will want or even can find the same exact one you had. It’s also unlikely that you’ll find the sink that you want or need after one day of shopping and no research.
If you don’t believe us, search your local plumbing or hardware store’s website–you will quickly see how endless your options are.
This can make it difficult to know what you need and choose from those options. This is why we’re going to give you a quick guide on how to find the best one for your home and budget. Keep reading for more information!
DO THE RESEARCH
Before you begin shopping for your new sink, take some time to figure out exactly what you need and what features you’d like. You will definitely need to know the dimensions, including depth, have an idea about the type of material you want and figure out your budget.
Once you have those items narrowed down, your search will become easier. Actually, the more you can define and refine your search, the better your results will be. When looking for a bathroom sink or a kitchen sink, you will have more than a few options.
Descriptions like self-rimming/drop sinks, undermount, pedestal, and farmhouse will be common phrases and having an idea of what each one means will be quite helpful. Additionally, keep in mind that stainless steel and vitreous china are the two most common materials used for kitchen and bathroom sinks, respectively.
Although the word sink means almost the same to everyone, the types of sinks and their cost vary greatly. When you are shopping for a new sink, you will obviously want it to fit in with the style and decor of your home.
However, you don’t always need to spend thousands of dollars on high-end sinks that will end up being high maintenance. You can often find a great deal on a sink that is a bit more durable yet still stylish simply by opting out of certain features.
Keep in mind that when you purchase a sink you are not always buying the fixtures with it. This means that you should find out beforehand if they are included and save a bit of money if they’re not.
GET TO THE PLUMBING STORE!
Although there are plenty of great deals online, when you are dealing with items that must be installed, it can often be better to deal with a local company. Local plumbing stores can give you a quote on installation as well as list off the more popular sinks.
You may also have some luck negotiating a deal or asking for a discount, leaving more money in your pocket. If you have found the sink you’d like to install but aren’t sure who to call for the job, dial (817) 402-2188 for the Service Squad.
We’d love to install your new sink or give you recommendations on the best way to do so.
