Renovating a kitchen or bathroom is an exciting time for homeowners. Not only is it adding value to your home, but you’re finally able to make your dream a reality. From the cabinets to the fixtures, you have limitless options.
This is often why finding the right kitchen or bathroom sink can be a such a challenge. Not only are these fixtures a focal point in those rooms, but also there are so many options to choose from it could be a challenge.
Additionally, the bathroom sink you’ve always dreamt of may be more than you expect, budget-wise, or a challenge to install for your contractor. That’s why we’ve decided to offer some helpful tips on how to make the selection process easier.
Take The Time to Research Your Options
Options, options, options, when you’re updating your kitchen or bathroom you’re gonna have plenty of them.
Whether you want a modern design, a farmhouse look, or something that’s simple and affordable, you’ll have plenty to choose from. Some of the more popular sink variations include:
- Undermount Sinks
- Stainless Steel Sink
- Farmhouse Sink
- Pedestal Sink
- Corner Sink
- Cast Iron Sink
- Pedestal Sink
- Vessel Sink
In addition to the multiple style options, you’ll then have to narrow things down even further based on the material and design.
A good rule of thumb is to have a general rendering of what the layout will be. Depending on the space and the actual design of the countertop, you may not have the space for certain sinks.
Set a Budget
Once you know the style of your sink, your next goal is to narrow it down further based on price.
Sinks come in all shapes and sizes, and also costs, so setting a budget early is the best way to make the right decision for your home.
More often than not, the luxurious bathroom sinks like pedestal and vessel sinks made of glass can be on the higher end. However, if that’s a focal point of your bathroom, sometimes it will warrant the cost.
Before investing in a sink you should always compare the pricing and the amenities. If you feel that the price tag is offering you the look you want with the features you need, then it won’t be a hard decision. If you think you want more, then you can easily narrow that sink out of the search.

After all the research is done, the moment of truth has arrived, purchasing your new sink.
Local plumbing stores always have multiple styles in stock and even have mock bathrooms and kitchens set up to give you an idea of how they look.
