There are a wide variety of different sink options for your kitchen and bathroom. Not only can you choose from countless materials, including metals, acrylics, and even stones, but you can also choose the type of support you want for your sink. One of the less frequently seen types of sinks are undercounter sinks.
Undercounter sinks are actually mounted under the countertop, as the name implies. This is in contrast to automatic rim sinks that are mounted so that the rim sits on the counter. Because of this, you want to use a countertop that has a finished edge when choosing this type of sink.
One of the benefits of undermount sinks is the fact that it is easy to wash the countertop down to the sink. There is no edge of the sink to look good, it just has a flat surface to clean. You don’t have to worry about dirt and grime getting stuck on the edge of the sink.
These sinks also give it a different look. The faucet holes are in the countertop and not in the sink itself. This means you don’t have to worry about finding a sink with the right holes for your faucet, you can simply put the right holes in your countertop. This means you have more options for faucets than you would with a sink that already has the holes cut out, so you have more decisions to make when it comes to the overall look of the sink once the installation is complete.
Undercounter sinks tend to look great with stone countertops, as well as solid countertops with a well finished edge. You don’t want to use these sinks with laminate countertops because the edges just wouldn’t show up.
Although these sinks are not used as often as automatic rim sinks, it’s easy to find a wide variety of different options to choose from. You can get them in different sizes and shapes, as well as in different materials. There is also the option to shop around for the best price, as many companies offer similar models that you can choose from.
