There are many types of sinks available to choose from:
Homeowners must also choose the type of material they want. Stone, stainless steel, cast iron and composite sinks are all popular, and each has its own appeal, though costs can vary widely. They also must decide if they will keep the existing faucet and ensure that the new sink has the correct holes for that faucet.
To help decide which type of sink works best, consider the placement of the sink and the available space. If a cabinet is smaller, you may be limited on what sinks can be installed in the opening or how far it can be modified to create a fit. Working with a contractor who can modify the existing cutout can allow for larger sinks to be installed and ensures that the sink will be properly sealed to prevent water from leaking into the cabinets. A professional can also reinstall the faucet or replace it with a new one.
