Undermount sinks are a trendy choice in both the bathroom and the kitchen because, not only are they functional, but they also work with whatever style your kitchen and bathroom already have.
An undermount sink is a sink that is installed under the countertop, adding a very neat and professional look. They come in a variety of shapes, materials and sizes, and their position makes cleaning a breeze.
Choosing your size
The size of your sink will depend on how big your bathroom or kitchen is. You do not want your sink to take up half the room. The average sink is usually 20 by 30 inches, and the depth can be anywhere from 5 to 10 inches.
You can also choose whether you prefer a double set or a single sink. If you have a large family and you do a lot of dishes, then the double set is probably the best option. The same applies to the bathroom, many couples decide to have a “his and hers” set.
Whether you are opting for a stainless steel sink or one made of ceramic or porcelain, you will be able to find one that reflects your unique style. Undermount sinks are also available in a range of colors, so if you want to carry a color scheme throughout your home, this is not a problem.
A sink that is undermounted is located under the counter, hides the plumbing. This is a fantastic feature as it will make your kitchen or bathroom appear very neat and professional.
Spoilt for choice
Instead of going to every supply store to find a sink to match your home, you can go online and have a look at the various materials and design styles. Shopping online is always easier because it saves you loads of time and you are spoilt for choice.
The best option to go for would have to be stainless steel, even though you may find ceramic or porcelain appealing. Not only is stainless steel a very strong material, but it is also very easy to clean, making it the hygienic choice for every bathroom, or kitchen, to stop the spread of germs from one person to the next.
Stainless steel is also scratch and dent resistant so your sink will look elegant for a long time to come. If you are installing a stainless steel sink, be sure that your counter is made of marble or granite.
Undermount sinks are very low maintenance. Any mess that accumulates around the sink can simply be pushed into the sink without getting stuck under the rim. Because the countertops that the sinks are installed into have glossy finishes, cleaning them is also easy.
Undermount sinks are clearly the best way to turn your kitchen or bathroom into a stylish part of your home. Be sure to go online and browse the many varieties available.
