Replacing our kitchen sink

So what started out as a minor weekend project turned into a whole day affair. We changed the drain of the kitchen sink which actually made the sink look pretty decent and a little while later notice a nickel size hole in the basin that my husband must have done with the pliers. The whole reason we didn't replace the kitchen sink during the renovation was because our sink was 29" and the standard sink size is either 25" (wouldn't work because there would be a hole left in the counter visible from the previous sink) and 33" (would eat into a decent amount of counter space). Our old sink wasn't terrible, it was an under mount which I really liked but wasn't sealed properly so my husband sealed it which has since turned yellow and gross. It was a two basin sink but both were so small washing pots and pans was miserable, plus both drains needed to be replaced (yellowed and gross). I wanted a single basin sink since I now have a dishwasher so we decided to bite the bullet and go with a 33". It did take up more counter space, but it just means I'll need to utilize the kitchen island we have! We couldn't under mount it since the counter tops are a cheap particle board material, we would've been left with exposed sides after it was cut. Eventually we'll replace the counter tops and probably under mount it then but not now!

You can get sinks in just about any size and type, even though the home centers generally only stock the so-called standard sizes. Here's a web site that organizes their sink catalog by type and dimension, to make it easy to find the sink you need.
