Undermount sinks are a modern alternative to traditional sinks that drop in and rest over the top of the countertop.
Undermount sinks are installed under the countertop allowing a seamless flow from sink to countertop, creating a sleek, contemporary look. Kitchen sinks are not just a fundamental part of your kitchen, with a undermount kitchen sink they are also a stylish choice too. Until quite recently an undermount kitchen sink was only an option for professional kitchens. But with improvements in materials used in home kitchens, and with more trades people trained to fit them, an undermount kitchen sink is now an affordable alternative to the standard drop-in kitchen sink for your home kitchen. So why would you choose an undermount kitchen sink for your home kitchen?
Is an Undermount Sink right for your Kitchen?
An undermount kitchen sink has a number of advantages compared with a standard drop-in sink.
- An undermount kitchen sink is fitted to the underside of your kitchen counter top so it avoids the characteristic raised rim around the edge of your sink that provides the seal for a standard drop-in sink. By avoiding the need for this rim an undermount kitchen sink helps you to maximise your counter top space. This can be especially useful if you have limited counter top space in a smaller kitchen.
- By avoiding the raised rim around the edge of your kitchen sink an undermount kitchen sink makes it easier for you to keep your kitchen counter top clean. Crumbs, spills, and splashed water can be swept straight from the counter top into the undermount kitchen sink with no rim above the counter top surface where food and moisture can catch and bacteria can build up. So an undermount kitchen sink is ideal if you are a home cooking enthusiast, a home baker, or you cook at home with small children and sometimes create lots of mess on your kitchen counter top.
- An undermount kitchen sink helps to create smooth, unbroken lines in your kitchen giving it an uncluttered, minimalist, and professional look. So an undermount kitchen sink can work well in both modern and traditional style kitchens. With the kitchen being the most used room in the house, and increasingly popular for entertaining casual and formal guests an undermount kitchen sink can provide an attractive, eye-catching feature for your kitchen. An undermount kitchen sink also helps draw attention to your kitchen counter top, which is ideal if you have paired your undermount kitchen sink with a high quality, attractive material for your kitchen counter top such as granite, solid wood, or marble.
- Although an undermount kitchen sink can be slightly more expensive to install in your home kitchen, fitting an undermount kitchen sink can help to increase the resale value of your home as part of an attractive, statement kitchen design. So an undermount kitchen sink can be a valueable investment piece for your home as well as a functional and attractive feature of your kitchen.
