All You Want For Christmas Is A New Sink
Has your porcelain kitchen sink become scratched and dingy? Has your stainless steel sink become dull and boring? It may be time to think about a new sink, and what better Christmas present than a new look in your kitchen?
Here is a list of things to consider before replacing your sink.
Replacement sink or complete upgrade?
Do you want to simply replace your existing sink with an identical new one, or go with something completely new and different? If you’re going with a new one, we recommend going to see the sink in person rather than simply looking online.
What’s your budget?
First-time sink buyers are often surprised at how costly new sinks can be. Do a quick check online to see the range of prices in the style you’re considering and set your budget accordingly. Then shop around.
DIY or pay a pro?
There are many things that can go wrong when replacing a sink. Keep in mind that you’re not just popping a new sink in where the old one used to be. Plumbing fittings and faucets have to be carefully fitted to avoid leakage. Other issues may arise, such as cutting a larger hole in your countertop. Go pro with Accurate Plumbing Solutions. Your investment will quickly pay for itself when you avoid costly re-dos and expensive utility bills that can come from leaking faucets and plumbing.
What to do with your old sink?
If you don’t want to hang onto your old sink, and most people don’t, you can donate it to places like Habitat for Humanity. You can also sell the sink on Craigslist or a Facebook marketplace group if you want to recoup some of the money spent on your new one.
