Kitchen Sinks For Your Mobile Home


While upgrading their mobile homes most people often choose to install a new sink in their kitchen to make it more useful and appealing. There are many models of mobile home kitchen sinks to choose from, but before you make your purchase it is important to be well informed about the different models available.

The counter tops in the mobile homes are generally not as deep as in the kitchen in your home. Due to this reason, a standard kitchen sink will not fit in your mobile home. The most popular choices of mobile home kitchen sinks are the 17" and 19" deep sinks.

The 17" deep sinks have faucets coming up through the counter. There is no provision for the faucets to be included in the sink unit itself. These 17" sinks were popular in the past and they can be found in most old mobile homes.

The 19" deep sinks are now the most popular option among mobile home owners. These sinks have two drilled holes in the back which are useful for installing the water line and sink faucets. These 19" sinks also cause lesser than the 17" sinks, making them more useful.

Choosing between 17" sink and 19" sink for your mobile home kitchen

In the case of 17" sink, the owner faces the disadvantage of having water leakage. This usually happens when the faucet washers fail, the water then starts accumulating under the countertop unless specific provision has been made to secure the area around the faucet with adequate waterproof material.

If the mobile home owner chooses the 19" kitchen sink, then he has the advantage of having his faucets and water lines coming out of the sink. This drastically reduces the risk of water accumulation below the counter top.

The 19" sinks also can be modified a little by adding in a 4th hole in addition to the existing 3 predrilled holes sink. This 4th hole will allow you to include an air gap for your dishwasher, if you want your dishwasher pipes to be connected with your sink pipes. Alternatively, your faucet's sprayer can be accommodated in the 4th hole.
