Calling All Weekend Warriors!

May 2023

Is there anything better than a weekend filled with DIY projects? We think not. With the weather getting better and schools wrapping up, now is the time to nail those DIY projects before the busy summer months kick in. We’re hitting the DIY Projects this spring and aiming for that full-body, head-to-toe satisfaction that comes with looking at a refreshed space, new kitchen sink, or bathroom makeover that you completed with your own hands. Join us for one of these DIY projects—and be sure to snap a pic of any of your work that features Sinkology sinks for a chance to win a $1,000 gift card! Learn more about our giveaway here. 

Refresh Your Walls  

If you don’t have a backsplash, give a peel-and-stick backsplash a try. Trust us, it will look fancier than it sounds. We love Smart Tiles for their high-end look and easy-to-follow instructions. Plus, they promise the install will take less than three hours. Now that’s a project we can get behind. Not only is the application easy, you’ll find that everyday use is as reliable as the real thing. They’re easy to clean and heat- and humidity-resistant.

Upgrade Your Faucet 

A kitchen faucet can improve the overall look of your kitchen and make everyday clean-up easier. There are lots of faucet options to choose from: 

  • The Pull-Down Faucet: This may be the most traditional faucet style, but you can’t go wrong with its easy spray wand that pulls directly toward the basin.  
  • The Commercial Style Faucet: This faucet has been growing in popularity in recent years. It takes the classic pull-down design and adds more flexibility to reach every corner of your sink. Added perk: it looks like it belongs in a professional kitchen.  
  • The Separate Spray Faucet: For complete flexibility, this is the way to go. Think of it like a dual-head shower for your kitchen sink. With a separate sprayer away from the main tap, you can clean up with better control.  

Once you pick the faucet for you, a quick DIY installation can completely change the way you work at your kitchen sink. A high-impact, high-arc faucet can change the eye lines of your kitchen, bringing new attention to your space. Love!

 Easily Install a New Kitchen Sink 

The complete line of Sinkology Quick-Fit® kitchen sinks will help you make the biggest impact with the least amount of effort in the least amount of time. This installation style accommodates retrofit installation, so even statement farmhouse sinks like the Parker Quick-Fit Fireclay Double Bowl Kitchen Sink can be installed without any changes being made to the existing countertops and cabinetry. Even more, a full workstation is guaranteed to change the focus point of your kitchen. The Josephine Single Workstation with Cutting Board adds a custom-designed removeable solid wood cutting board to the setup for a beautiful, functional, DIY update.

Feeling Bold? Try this. 

If you have a DIY itch that just cannot be scratched, we have a DIY project with your name all over it: combine all three of the changes above for an all-in-one kitchen makeover in a single weekend. The key here is to go bold: shop our Vibe Collection of Quick-Fit kitchen sinks to grab a drop-in retrofit sink in a new color (we love the matte black and matte blue options!). Complete your sink with a Pfister faucet, and then find a wall color to match the new mood. It’s a project for the most serious weekend warriors—and we are here to help along the way!
