Farmhouse Sink Price FAQ
This sink cost Q&A will answers common questions.
Are used sinks available?
Will I save money if I help a professional install my new sink and faucet?
It’s unlikely. Unless you have enough skill to do the job yourself, in which case you should consider doing it, a professional might consider your efforts to help to be more of a hindrance.
I’m having new cabinets and countertops installed. Will I save money to have the kitchen contractor install the new sink and faucet too?
You probably will, especially if the sink and faucet are on site when the countertops are ready for installation. It generally costs less to pay a contractor already at your home than to call another one to make a separate trip there.
Is a high-end sink worth the higher price?
If you’re asking if, for example, a $2,000 stainless steel sink is twice as good as a $1,000 stainless steel sink, then no, it’s probably not – though it might be of a noticeably higher quality and durability than a $500 model. However, when you get into the high end of the price range, the differences are more about style and appearance. In that discussion, whether or not it is worth it is a subjective question only you can answer.
