I had no idea kitchen sinks cost so much.
We’re trying to be as cost-conscious* as possible in renovating our garden apartment. The stove & fridge were purchased (separately) from Craigslist for $275 total. The cabinets were free and, while they could use a good coat of paint, they’re solid & well made. Left on the list of things to buy are a kitchen sink, faucet, upper cabinets (or maybe shelves) & counter top.
I’ve been browsing online and keeping an eye on craigslist but no luck yet. Perhaps it’s because we need an odd size or maybe I’m just picky. Either way, I didn’t expect to pay more for a sink than I did all the appliances.
Here’s what I’m looking for:
~ no more than 16″ wide
~ no more than 20″ long
~ not picky about depth
~ ideally, less than $100 but hopefully, less than $200
Guess this whole “home owner” thing comes with a bit of a learning curve.
* I am looking to purchase quality, well-made materials that will last. Often times, you get what you pay for and I’m not interested in wasting money just to do it over. I’m frugal, not cheap. That said, I’m not above 2nd hand items that are still in good shape. It’s a shame when perfectly good items end up in a landfill.
