Default Kitchen Sink Question

I've just had my kitchen fitted. It looks good but the sink is off centre of the cabinet by about 1 cm.
Is there anything I can do? Is there any wriggle room or would I have to buy a wider sink and get that fitted? Thanks in advance.

There's almost no wiggle room. A few mm, usually. Are there flexible
connectors on the taps, at least?

What does the fitter think?

A photo?


It might be cheaper to get CBT?

I think the answer is "that depends":

Is the cutout in the worktop wide enough to allow for a different position?

Do the sides of the cabinet (or any other cross members or bracing)
prevent the bowl moving nearer to where you would like it?

If both the above are true, is the flange on the sink wide enough to
cover enough gap with the sink in a different position.

Lastly can you loosen the clips that hold it in place?


If yes to all the above, then "yes"

There's usually only a few mm of wiggle room.

I only just spotted it today after he'd gone. He's back tomorrow so I'll see what he says then.

Haha, you are as bad as me!

Our 1000mm sink base is under a window and I had a hard time deciding
whether to have the sink (roughly 850mm) lining up nicely with the unit
or window. I went for window in the end so it's a good 5cm off in the base.

If it's any consolation I couldn't remember what i'd decided so had to
get up and take a look, so it's plainly stopped bugging me.

Sideways or front to back ?

Is there anything I can do?


Make the supplier do it properly before paying them.

Is there any wriggle room


Not that much usually.

or would I have to buy a wider sink


Unlikely to be available.

and get that fitted?


Get the supplier to do it again, properly.

anyway, you senile wisenheimer. LOL
