TOP MOUNT OR UNDERMOUNT

by | Jun 1, 2021 | Blog | 0 comments

The #sink is a very important element in kitchens, mainly due to its function when it comes to washing and preparing food during the cooking process. When undermount #sinks hit the market, they were expensive and considered difficult to install. But now that professionals are more comfortable installing under the surface prices have become more competitive and the choice has torn much more difficult.

Depending on the material of the #countertop, you can choose between several ways to place the #sink. Therefore, it is one of the most important questions when creating your #countertop.

TOPMOUNT

They can be installed on any type of #countertop and are still the most common type of kitchen sink. A drop-in sink has a visible lip around its perimeter that rests flat on the countertop. The sink basin drops straight into the countertop cut-out, and the perimeter lip holds everything in place. Top mounts are secured by hidden metal clips under the countertop as well as a bead of silicone caulk under the sink’s edge. topmount #sinks represent the most traditional line and its installation is usually faster and less expensive.

UNDERMOUNT

It is typically recommended for granite, quartz or synthetic countertops. Undermount #sinks mount to the bottom of the countertop and are held in place by heavy-duty clips and caulk or a special adhesive. An undermount sink does have a rim, but the rim is not visible because it rests up against the bottom of the counter. The edge of the countertop along the sink cutout is entirely exposed.

Currently, the installation undermount sinks are gaining ground compared to the traditional topmount sink. A different style that, together with the great variety of specific models, offers possibilities available within a kitchen.

Undermount #sinks are usually more visually aesthetic and tend to be cleaner since the silicone seal between the sink and the counter is not as visible and there is no lip to form an obstruction around the sink. You can swipe food particles directly off the counter and into the sink.

Although both styles are functional, the fact that we opt for one or the other will be determined by our taste and options. The choice of the sink, as well as the rest of the elements in the kitchen, is determined with the unique purpose of making life easier for us, so beyond design and color, we must value its usability adapted to our lifestyle.
