How to choose the best sink for your kitchen.
There is a lot to consider when choosing the perfect sink for your kitchen. Not only does it need to be practical and user friendly, but it also needs to tie in with the style of your kitchen - and can actually be a great asset to the overall look you are going for. Do you prefer a single bowl or double bowl? Stainless steel or the newly developed eco-granite? Can a baking tray fit in your sink? Does it matter? Maybe not – but it is good to think about these things so that your sink fits in with your lifestyle, rather than you just adapting to what you have. Break away from whats considered the norm, and look at all the new, fantastic products available to you today – you might be surprised with what you discover.
If you’re putting in a new kitchen, you’ll need to also install a new sink. Firstly you need to cut a hole in the bench top using the template provided. When cutting into Formica bench tops, ensure you use masking tape and a sharp jigsaw blade. When installing the sink, ensure you use the foam seal and silicone sealant then clamp into place whilst the silicone sealant dries.
If you’re replacing your existing sink, measure your existing sink precisely as your new sink will need to be the same size of larger. Make sure you use thread tape on the tap to ensure the seal is tight and there are no leaks.
