Rock Tops Granite Reports: Undermount Sinks for Hygiene and Appeal
Professionals who specialize in kitchen and bathroom remodeling recommend installing under-mount sinks. Under mount sinks have become very popular because of their modern, sleek appeal and their clean look. Because they fit under the countertops, one can easily wipe crumbs and debris from the countertop right into the sink, without it becoming caught under the lip of the sink. The older style sink that requires a bead of caulk around it to provide a seal between the sink and countertop accumulates crumbs and debris and just looks bad over time.
The undermount sink does not work with all countertops. The ideal countertop for this type of sink is granite, marble or any other natural stone or solid material. Countertops of laminate or formica can eventually delaminate and bubble up over time, so an under mount sink is not recommended for this type of surface.
There are many styles of kitchen sinks to choose from, including single and double bowl. Bathroom sinks offer many options with a variety of sizes, shapes and colors to choose from. Kitchen and bath remodeling projects are the most expensive to do, so whatever choice you make for your sink and countertop, you will want to be sure it will remain functional and beautiful for many years. The undermount sink is one worth considering.
