Question: Ed: We installed a kitchen island complete with a bar sink. I don’t want a standard square sink; I would like a round sink. What preliminary work can I do to make this project run smoothly, and are there any helpful tips on choosing my bar sink?

Answer: A good plan is to have the sink on site before starting the project. This way, your contractor can order the countertop, faucet and base cabinets individually for your particular sink.

When choosing your luminaire, start with the choice of material. I like stainless steel or cast iron sinks. Checking what colors or finishes are available can help with your choice of materials.

Then decide whether you want an insert or a built-in sink rim. Also add in some entertainment options like ice cream molds, sink racks, and cutting boards.

Finally, create a countertop plan so you and your contractor are on the same page. If the contractor has the actual sink in hand and knows its exact location before starting work, it should go smoothly for your new kitchen island.
