If you would like to do a DIY project of installing your new kitchen sink on your own, we can help. Watch the video above, or simply follow our guide below.

Remove your old sink

It may seem obvious but your first step is to remove your old sink and ensure that your new sink will fit in the space available. If not, you’ll need to make adjustments to the space.


Once you’ve removed your old sink, make sure that you use silicone around the edges of your counter to ensure no water will get through and cause damage.

Clip it in place

Using the clips provided, slide them into the channel. Slip your sink into place and tighten down the clips. These clips are going to help keep your sink secure and make sure no water gets in.
