Unhappy batthroom plumbing problem

We recently remodeled the downstairs bathroom with all new fixtures and paint. When we hooked up the new sink it worked fine for a few days. Then suddenly it sprung a leak and our water pressure is super low. We cannot figure out where the leak is coming from. We never had this problem until we put in the new sink. The toilet and showers water pressure is fine.
Any suggestions?

Aggravated and confused

Where is it leaking? The pressure drop may be there or in a kink in the supply line.

Hope this helps.

Hello, Dry the floor under the sink then lay down news paper and watch for marks on the paper from the leak. The leak will most likley be straight up. Put your flashlight on the spot and shine the lite up, that should spot your leak. You Should also find out if the water leaks all the time or just when you turn the water on.
The loss of pressure could be the aerator on the end of your faucet. Remove it then check pressure. I have also seen the aerator leak where it screws on, then drip down the inside of the valve and show up on the floor under the sink.
