Any Extras?

  • If there are any plumbing issues to be addressed when the kitchen sink is installed, it is best to hire a professional to manage the work.

  • Accent options for kitchen sink installations include sprayers, pull out extensions, built in soap dishes, and garbage disposals. If any of these accents are included as part of the sink, installation may take longer.
