How to fit a Butler or Farmhouse Sink.

If your sink is not fitted with a weir type overflow then fitting the sink is much more straightforward.  You can fit the sink first, then attach the taps to the worktop, apply sealant to sink rim and finally lower the worktop into position.


This does however create some fitting problems. Firstly it is difficult to position and fit a solid surface worktop once the taps have been attached and secondly it is difficulty to accurately work out the final position of the sink prior to the worktop being fitted. This applies especially to ceramic butler sink which are rarely dimensionally accurate or exactly square.



It is much easier to fit the worktop first, fit the taps in place, slide in the sink,  apply sealant, pack up the sink until it mates well with the worktop and then clean off excess silicone sealant.
