Can I put a kitchen sink by a partition wall?
Hi Caroline. I assume you're thinking of a standard "sit on" worktop sink and drainer on top of a kitchen base cabinet. Why should you worry about a partition wall? The only worry I would have is if you are thinking of an under worktop sink such as a Butler or other heavy sink and you have to fix separately to a stud partition wall in which case there would be problems with the weight bearing capacity of the wall. Can you be more specific?
Hiya, yes I was worried it would absorb the water, get wet. Is this something I don't need to worry about then?
Are you not going to tile the wall behind the sink then ??
As long as you tile around the wall ans use some sealent to keep and worktop/wall joins watertight, you should be OK.
Excellent thank you.
