Adding to the beauty of undermount kitchen sinks are its various sizes, shapes, and materials. You can choose from a double or single sink installation. On the other hand, there are also different sizes and measurements for you to choose from, along with different sink depths. When it comes to the material of the undermount kitchen sinks, you can take a pick from ceramic or stainless steel.
It can be a good idea to speak with a plumber or kitchen fitter before planning a new corner kitchen sink. All appliances and fittings that require water need to be easy to attach to existing pipes and drainage systems. You will also need to allow extra space for taps if your chosen design does not have pre drilled holes and would look best with a standalone tap fixed directly onto the countertop.
Another common material for undermount sinks in ceramic, which typically comes in white finish. This is great no matter the color of your kitchen countertop. As a matter of fact, you can opt for a customized ceramic undermount sink that goes well with the design of your entire kitchen. This type of sink design is available in a butler-sink style, which is perfect for Victorian-style interiors. On the other hand, you can find rectangular and solid ceramic undermount sinks that combines greatly with country-style interior designs in kitchens.
The installation of a bottom mount ceramic kitchen sink however would be somewhat more difficult. In this situation the countertop material will be making the lip to the sink itself, thus the cut and finish need to be very accurate and tidy. Unfortunately, no matter how accurate, a small difference between sink opening and countertop material is always going to exists, and a flush and exact match is close to impossible, thus leaving a lip or small overhang is preferable, otherwise a good helping of silicone needs to be applied, somewhat retracting from the otherwise unique and classy finish.
