Make sure you have carefully stored the pipes and clips you used as some of them may come in handy when installing the new sink. Lift the sink directly from the counter-top and place it in your garage or store room. You may need to do some cleaning on the area that is beneath the sink rim before you install a new sink.

In the past most people preferred a double bowl sink, however a single large bowl is being selected much more frequently. It would seem many people are using the dishwasher and they want a larger single sink to wash just the pots and pans. It should be noted that the largest undermount single bowl on the market today is typically 30 inches long (measured horizontally) by 18 inches wide (front to back). This does not seem like big difference from the typical double bowl that measures 33 inches long (measured horizontally) by 22 inches wide (front to back), but the reality is the reduction of the sink size allows for much greater room behind the sink which will now open up your faucet choices and it also allows placement of the sink a little farther back in the countertop which allows the front edge of the counter top more meat which helps significantly in keeping breakage of the countertop to a minimum. This is truly important because most solid surface countertops fail at this critical point not only at installation but a year or two after installation after your fabricator is now no longer responsible.

This setup looks like a table with a sink in the middle where the back of the table is against the wall and the front of table is supported by two legs. These legs are usually pretty ornamental. The console sinks are best suited to smaller spaces because they have an open feel and make a space fell bigger than it actually is. I would use this type of sink in a guest bath because you can use the space underneath the sink for a basket to hold extra towels or toiletries.

Stainless steel sinks are also very popular, particularly with professional cooks, though copper sinks - notably the farmhouse style - are gaining in popularity, at least in part due to the appealing warmth of the natural patina copper develops as it ages. Kitchen sinks made of artisan materials, though not yet as well-known as copper, stainless and stone, are all on the upswing. Examples are fireclay kitchen sinks, which are often made in the farm style, and cast concrete sinks. Cast concrete in particular allows the artisan to create an amazing array of styles: single well, double well, trough, combined sink and draining board units, countertops with integrated sinks and the farm style, along with unusual shapes. This newer material brings one more element into the design mix - the green kitchen sink. By combining recycled materials with the concrete, artisans can lessen both the environmental impact and the weight of the finished sink.

The clips will probably be easily removed with a screwdriver. You may be able to peel the sink away from the caulk with gentle pressure, but a plastic scraper can speed that process along. If you’re using the same countertop, be extra careful not to damage it as you remove the sink.

Sealing helps to prevent this to a particular extent. But various juices, soft drinks and house hold cleaning liquids may cause dirty spots on the marble.

The thicker the gauge copper, the lower the number. Most bath sinks are made from 20 gauge (the thinnest) to 16 gauge (the thickest) and most kitchen sinks range from 18 gauge to 14 gauge. When shopping for copper sinks, always ask about the gauge and be aware that a thicker gauge sink will cost more - and in many cases is worth it! A lightweight gauge metal can result in a \"tinny\" sound when running the faucet.

This means that the clips you used for your old sink can be used to mount the new sink. If you cannot use them you should request for clips from the store you bought your sink from.
