    Default Kitchen Sinks - Where to Buy

    Hi Again everyone,

    My other item on the list is the ole' kitchen sink. Need 1 3/4 LH bowl in polished stainless steel finish. I know there's heaps around at about $200 mark, but does anyone have any tips on what brand to buy, where to save a few $ and what to watch out for?

    Thanks .....DC

    Ross's Auctions in Maylands regularly hold renovator's auctions and kitchen sink's pop up from time to time.

    I have never bid on sinks so I have no idea how much they go for, but the staff are helpful and will tell you how much to expect to pay.

    It depends on how much of a hurry you are in to get one.

    You have to make sure you buy good quality, heavy gauge stainless, otherwise if you mount a mixer tap in the middle it will flex everytime you turn it on. On my last two renos I bought whatever looked like a sink, only to find there is S/S and S/S. this time I bought a Clark brand sink and it is very good. Another excellent brand is Franke. Again ask for Catalogs at Reece or Tradelink

    Make sure you get one with a hole in the bottom, otherwise your buying a bucket.

    Tradelink is okay, or maybe try tradeconnect.com.au

    Cheers

    Have a look on e-bay.

    I have purchased a couple of new sinks this way.

    They have not yet had much use so I cannot really comment on quality.

    However they seemed as good as the better brands, with all the attachments.

    One mob on E-bay has a sort of show room around Bankstown.

    Reece, for the non-tradie, are for the wealthy.

    Just be aware which side you want the drain board.

    Second hand on e-bay or even from the tip can be very cheap, like $5.

    Good Luck

    Thanks workgoose - good advice as I am going to have a flickmixer. I bought Franke appliances, so might investigate this some more - didn't go for the brushed finish though - think I need bright and shiny!!
