Double Kitchen Sink Price FAQ

This brief Q&A covers additional important issues.

Why are some high-end sinks so expensive? Are they worth that much extra?

Most luxury sinks are crafted with tremendous quality, but that doesn’t mean that a $4,000 sink is four times better than a $1,000 model. In the upper end of the spectrum, you’re paying a premium price for style, craftsmanship and material.

Should I buy a used kitchen sink?

You might find some in good condition on eBay, often cast iron models. Find out all you can about it first, and make sure the seller has a good return policy if the sink turns out not to be as advertised.

How much do garbage disposals and tankless water heaters cost?

To ensure you get a quality model with good durability, expect to pay at least $100 for the disposal and $115 for an electric water heater designed for one point of use. Look at your dishwasher’s manual or online to find out how much hot water it needs per minute during filling, and choose a model that can supply at least that amount plus you might want to use for handwashing or other chores.

We’ll be moving in three years. How much should I spend on a stainless steel sink to ensure it will continue to look good through the sale of our home?

Stainless steel is easy to care for and maintains its good looks very well. Select a 16-gauge or 18-gauge steel sink for best results. The higher the gauge is, the thinner the metal is, and the more prone to denting it will be. To get a good-quality, but not top-quality stainless steel sink, expect to pay $150-$225. Care for it as directed by the manufacturer, and it should still look “like new” in three years.
