Our old sink was pretty standard–sub par. 17 years old. So when we were planning our kitchen remodel, a new sink had to happen.
We wanted an undermount sink with one deep basin and fell in love with this 30″Kraus sink
After the undersides of the countertops were sealed three times–we were gearing ourselves up for days–ya know, building anxiety–to cut out the sink hole. And although we tracked down a router from a friend that we could use, when we tried it on a scrap piece of wood–it was just as hard and terrifying as we imagined it was going to be. So we called in a professional who charged us $30 for the job. We already had the template drawn, so it only took him maybe 15 minutes. We sanded the whole area thoroughly and then added silicone for the sink to adhere to.
The sink came with a bunch of braces, to hold the sink very securely in place, that we spaced around the whole thing and drove screws through.
The end result is pretty swoon-worthy. The sink came with a rack that has protective feet and side bumpers to protect the sink from scratches that we’ll keep in place most of the time.
We actually installed the sink before we finished the countertops, and then after the counters had cured we installed the new faucet–but we’ll save those details for later this week.
P.s. I am doing some traveling this week, but will still be posting and answering comments as flights and schedules permit. Just cut me some slack on beach day–(follow along @chrislovesjulia.)
