    Default Cut holes in a ceramic sink?

    I have a one hole sink with a mixer tap but would prefer three holes with conventional taps - can additional holes be cut in a ceramic sink without weakening it significantly and if yes how?

    Ceramic basin in bathroom ???

    It can be done although you may have a problem doing it yourself in place.

    Also the hole where the mixer is may be too big to accomodate the new spout.

    The sink has been removed and is not in place - so there is easy access.

    If it can be done how do I do it?

    The only one I ever had done was done by a glass company for memory.

    You may be able to do it yourself using a tile or ceramic hole saw with lots of water
