    I was wondering if anybody could possibly confirm if 35mm is the standard size for the cut out hole for a kitchen sink tap? Any help would be appreciated.

    32mm - 38mm.
    Depending on tap and whether or not it has a pull our vegie sprayer.

    35mm should be ok for standard mixer.
    Vegie sprayer ( pull out ) requires 38mm

    Not all sinks come pre-drilled, and some taps fix onto the work surface so coring/drilling is necessary. But the size does vary depending on the tap. 35mm is average size. But I would not core a hole before having the tap on site just to be safe.
