Utility Sink Cost

Putting in a utility sink averages between $40 and $200. Since utility sinks are not chosen for their design or style, they cost a lot less than more decorative styles.

Sink Prices by Material

The material plays a big part in how much your new sink will cost. Stainless steel or composite are the most cost-effective; quartz and solid surface is the priciest.

  • Stainless steel ($100-$800): Simple and versatile, this is a common go-to for kitchens, where the sink easily matches with stainless steel appliances. Though stainless steel is easy to clean, it does show water spots and may scratch.
  • Composite ($300-$600): This material is durable and chip-resistant. Though the color of composite sinks extends throughout the material, scratches may still show on darker surfaces.
  • Cast iron ($300-$900): One of the most durable materials, cast iron is typically finished with hard porcelain enamel. Though cast iron is easy to clean and long-lasting, the finish can chip over time. Cast iron sinks are also extremely heavy.
  • Quartz ($800-$1,200): Made to match quartz countertops, these sinks are a sleek and aesthetically appealing option. One downside: dark quartz shows scratches.
  • Solid surface ($2,100-$4,300): This material is extremely durable, and since it’s color extends through the entire sink, scratches don't show easily. Solid surface sinks don’t tolerate heat well and may crack from heavy impact. They require professional installation, along with a solid surface countertop. Solid surface materials can range from $25 to $50 per square foot.

DIY Sink Installation vs. Hire a Plumbing Company

With so many installation expenses to consider, it's tempting to choose the most affordable plumber you can find, or attempt installation yourself. Installing a new sink is no small task, so it's best left to the professionals. In addition to hiring a plumber, you may also need an electrician for remodeling that includes electric fixtures, and a contractor for cabinets.

Don't skimp on a new sink installation. This is a home fixture you'll likely keep for decades and one that can add great value to your home.
