Having a shiny new sink, along with a new faucet and countertops, will give life to your kitchen as if they were new appliances or a new floor, in the times we live in is no longer so complicated to install a new faucet and sink, thanks to modern techniques in which the accessories are only screwed or glued, mostly without welding or torches.

How easy is it to install a kitchen sink?

The most difficult part of installing a sink next to a faucet is connecting the sink drain, the part between the sink tail and the drain line. You must start at the tail of the sink and work down from there, as there is a swivel P-trap with a trap adapter, it swivels from side to side on two different axes and adjusts from the bottom to the top.

Before you go shopping for materials try to draw a map and verify the inside diameters of the tail and waste line, after that instead of buying the kit, better to buy only the parts you need, you can also add Schedule 40 PVC pipe to adjust and cut as the situation warrants.

How easy is it to install a kitchen sink?

Step 1

First you must measure and mark the design you want for the sink.
Mark the back edges of the countertop to center the sink in your cabinet.

The sink has a template, join it with the mark on the counter. Place the back edge ½⅓ inch from the counter parallel to the counter.

Then use 2-inch masking tape to mark the location of the sink.

Mark the center of the sink on the back edge of the sink, then place the sink face down on the counter, align the sink mark next to the counter mark

Adjust the sink to leave 1 1⁄2 inch from its back edge and backsplash, note that the sink is parallel to the edge of the countertop.

Mark around the sink and then remove it.

Measure the width of the sink edge, subtract 1/8 inch and mark that amount on the outline of the sink

Mark the cut lines on the countertop.

Step 2

When you finish using the ruler to join the marks you will end up with a rectangular outline of the sink hole in the counter. You can round the corners by hand to approximate the spacing of the sink corners.

Now use a spade bit that is wider than the blade of the jigsaw (a ½ inch bit) and drill a hole into the space at the corners of the cut lines.

When making the cut lines connect all the marks with a ruler to make them as accurate as possible.

Step 3

Use a hole saw blade to cut a hole in the front shape and cut along the line that was marked up to the hole and repeat the same procedure on the other side so you have the right way to put the sink.

Now you must place a cut of wood a little larger in size than the cut in the area of the sink. To keep it from falling out, you should put screws in it to ensure that the saw blade does not get stuck.

Then you will need to cut along the lines marked on both sides and remove the trimmed material.

You should check the arrangement of the sink on the table, then trim the hole with the saw if it is necessary to do so.

Step 4

The next step is to place the sink facing down on a countertop.

Then you should run the pipe through the faucet and the glue through the joint that covers the faucet and the sink and then run it up through the hole that was made in the sink.

Forget about installing plumbing yourself and reading manuals. Let a professional help you and hire Kitchen Design & Remodeling for a complete renovation project.
