When it comes to replacing a sink, most people have a few questions about the process and the timing. Continue reading to get answers to frequently asked questions about sink replacements.
When is it time to replace?
Knowing when to replace a sink will come down to a few key indicators. First, if a sink is leaking or showing any other sign of major disrepair, it might be time to invest in a replacement. A good rule of thumb is to upgrade if the cost of repairs is approximately half the price of a new sink.
Additionally, if a sink is outdated in style and its space is being renovated, it’s generally the right time to look into a replacement. Swapping out one outdated sink for a brand new fixture can provide a much needed face lift for any kitchen or bathroom.
How do I choose a new sink?
Choosing a new sink will come down to a few important factors. One consideration is the space in which it’s located. Be sure to measure the room available for a sink before falling in love with any specific style.
Next, be sure to decide on the design before purchasing a sink. Hoping to create a farmhouse kitchen? Looking for a sink to match a modern, minimalistic style? Settle on the room’s design plan before purchasing a new sink.
Can I replace my sink on my own?
While sink replacement is trickier than simply swapping out one faucet for another, it can be done as a DIY project. Before tackling this DIY task, it’s important to gather the proper tools. Most installation will only require common tools, such as wrenches, screwdrivers, and a scraper.
How much does a replacement cost?
Sink replacement costs vary greatly and depend on both the type of sink and the chosen installation method. To keep costs down — generally in the $300–$500 range — choose a more economical sink and make the installation a DIY project. Those with a bigger budget should consider hiring a contractor to do the work.
