[category-introduction] Before you take the plunge into a brand-new kitchen sink, it’s important to understand what you’re buying. What’s to understand? Size, for starters. A kitchen single bowl sink will give you more room for soaking dishes, but a double bowl kitchen sink will give you more flexibility. Finishes like bronze, gold and brushed stainless steel when combined with clean lines make for a modern kitchen sink. While a kitchen sink in ceramic needs a little extra care but is a stunning addition to a grand kitchen. Then there’s methods of kitchen sink installation. An undermount sink is attached under your kitchen bench and requires a solid benchtop choice, while a top-mount kitchen sink is dropped in from above and suits any benchtop type. Not sure what to make of it all? At Tradelink, we’re experts in kitchens, so take advantage of our experience and advice. Shop the Tradelink kitchen sink range in store or online.

Our Favourite Kitchen Sinks

Double, Single, and 1 & 3/4 Sinks
Single bowl? Double bowl? Or something in between? Of course you want a kitchen sink that’s going to bowl you over, but it also must be the right size for your space and your needs. A single bowl kitchen sink is generally the largest sink you can find (but they do come in large, medium, and small sizes). Despite their large size, they generally take up the smallest amount of bench space (confusing, right?). It’s just because two bowls side by side can be wider than one large bowl. So, if you have big roasting pans to soak, and oodles of pots to scrub, a single bowl kitchen sink will probably sit at the top of your list.

A double bowl kitchen sink brings flexibility to the kitchen. Wash your dishes in one sink and rinse them in the other. Or soak away the baked-in grime in one sink and leave the other sink free to function.

Want two sink bowls but don’t want to give up too much bench space? There are 1 & ½  bowls sinks and 1 & ¾ bowl sinks to choose from too. At Tradelink, we’re sure we’ll have the perfect combo for you.   

Top Mount & Undermount Basins
Top-mount kitchen sinks have a lip that sits above and covers a small amount of the benchtop. They are dropped into a pre-cut hole from above and are cheap and easy to install. Top-mount kitchen sinks are easier to replace than other sink types. They protect the edge of your benchtop from damage from knocks that can occur when rinsing and washing pots and pans and other large and heavy kitchen items. Top-mount kitchen sinks also generally have less gunk build up because they offer access to all the sink, including its edges.

An undermount kitchen sink is installed from underneath the benchtop. This means the edge cannot be seen from above. Undermount sinks look sleek and modern. They are best suited to stone, marble and concrete benchtops that can withstand a larger amount of water splash. They are incredibly durable and promise a long and loyal life.

Kitchen sinks are more than just a place to wash the dishes, they are a real feature of your kitchen space.

[accordion-item-title-1] How to clean/unclog kitchen sink drain?

Fats and oils, coffee grounds, and food scraps can all find their way into the kitchen sink drain, even when you have the best intentions of keeping them out. Bad smells and blockages can occur as a result. Here’s how to unblock a kitchen sink drain (and how to clean a kitchen sink drain too!).

But first! Always read your sink manufacturer’s instructions to check if there are any liquids or other substances that should not be applied to your sink’s surface. Also check the suitability of these same liquids and substances for use on PVC drains. With that sorted, you can get on with the how to, and clean that kitchen sink drain!

  • Step 1: get out the plunger. Place the plunger over the drain and plunge vigorously several times. If you hear the plunger clear the clog, flush the drain through with warm water.
  • Step 2: try turning up the heat. Hot or boiling water is an easy and inexpensive sink drainer. Fill the kettle and boil it. While you wait for it to boil, use a cup to scoop out any water that’s currently standing in the sink. Pour the boiling water into the sink and let it sit for a couple of minutes. If it doesn’t clear the blockage, allow the water to cool and use a cup to scoop it out.
  • Step 3: try a DIY mix. Common pantry items can help clean a kitchen sink drain. Pour about one cup of baking soda into the drain and follow that with an equal amount of white or apple cider vinegar. When the bubbling subsides, put the plug into place. Return in 15 minutes and run warm water down the drain to see if the blockage has been dislodged.
  • Step 4: Buy a supermarket product. You’ll find a few different options in the cleaning aisle of your nearest store. Follow the instructions on the product you buy.
  • Step 5: call in the experts. If that blockage simply won’t budge, it’s time to call your plumber.

[accordion-item-title-2] How to install a kitchen sink?

If your kitchen renovation is mostly in your hands, and you don’t mind a challenge, learning how to install a kitchen sink can save you time and money. It must be said though, that different sinks do have different installation requirements, and the degree of difficulty varies. So, be sure to read the manufacturer’s instructions. It’s also important to check whether installation by a plumber is essential to protect your warranty. Let’s look at how to install a top-mount kitchen sink!

  • Step 1: remove the old sink. Turn off the water at the mains and take a photo of the pipe configurations as this may come in handy later. Turn on the tap and drain the water line and then detach the supply lines. Loosen the sink – look for clips underneath the benchtop, use a blade to cut away any caulking – then push the old sink out of position.
  • Step 2: modify the benchtop if necessary to ensure a snug fit for your new sink – you can cut away the benchtop to make room for a larger sink, but if the sink is too small for your current hole, you’ll need to return it and swap it for a different sink.
  • Step 3: lift the sink and place it into the hole. Some sinks are very heavy so you may need help.
  • Step 4: seal the sink in place by caulking the edges. Run the bead of caulk around the sink’s perimeter.
  • Step 5: attach clips to the underside of the sink. Secure each clip with a screwdriver and ensure they are all screwed tight.
  • Step 6: reconnect the water supply and drain. Add your tapware in preparation for making a splash!
