How a Sink is Added to Granite Counters

Remodeling your kitchen can be a very rewarding experience, both emotionally and financially. Generally, you get the biggest return on your investment by updating your kitchen, in the event that you sell your Jackson, MO home.

The actual installation of your kitchen sink into a granite countertop is done similarly to other countertop materials. However, given the cost of granite and that is a challenge to cut, there are certain things that you have to do to make sure that your kitchen plumbing is installed smoothly. Here are some helpful hints.

Choosing the Right Sink for Your Kitchen

It is important to ensure that the sink that you choose matches the style of your granite, but there are other considerations. Think about what size of a sink that you'd like.

If you have a small kitchen selecting a small sink will give you more counter space. How will you use the sink? If you are an avid home cook, having an undermount sink lets you easily sweep crumbs and the like into the sink when you are cleaning up.

A dual basin sink is handy for food prep and washing dishes. It also depends on if you are putting in a sink into your existing granite countertops or if countertops and sinks are all brand new. Obviously, if you are using existing countertops, you need to select a sink that will fit into the current opening.

Why not Hire a Professional?

If you have the time and the skill, installing a sink into a granite countertop is easily a DIY job. However, what will happen if you don't have the time or the necessary skills?

Relying on your local plumber means that you get to take advantage of their technical know-how and have peace of mind that the job is going to be done right. If you tackle this yourself, you might damage the granite, or you might be faced with water leaks down the road.

How to Measure Properly

Probably the best thing you can do to make your kitchen remodel go smoothly is to measure everything accurately. Don't just measure the sink or the opening. Measure the cabinet depth and height to allow for plumbing fixtures.

You also need to measure backsplash. Backsplash will impact where your sink goes in the countertop, as your faucet needs to fit as well. For all of your kitchen plumbing needs, we are happy to help!
