Most basin sinks are way more expensive than they should be. The materials that they’re comprised of don’t warrant high prices, until you get into the designer sinks like copper and granite. Luckily, there are some easy ways to save a lot of money on yours when it’s time to go shopping! This post will outline some easy steps to take when you’re shopping for single basin sinks.
When shopping online it is easy to become overwhelmed by the huge selection of sinks that all look a lot alike. There aren’t many differences between these sinks, even when the price is different, many times you are just paying for the designer name. That means that if you’re looking at two different sinks that have similar style and function, but different prices, you can almost always get the same results from the more affordable choice.
Another way to save more money online is to only buy when you have the option for free shipping. Sinks are extremely heavy, which equates to very high shipping costs. Watch for deals that require you to spend XX amount of dollars to get free shipping where the sink that you want costs more than their free shipping minimum. This will save you at least a hundred bucks.
If you want to shop locally and want a designer sink try your local artists. Fused glass artists can make you the exact glass basin sink that you want for great prices. You aren’t getting a designer brand, but you are getting something that was hand crafted just for you, your specifications, and your home. There aren’t many things that can have that level of customization in the home.
Basin sinks don’t have to cost a fortune. You can save a lot of money by avoiding the designer brands, getting free shipping, and using local artists to create the designer look for you.
