When you are looking forward to a thorough remodel of your house, you cannot possibly overlook the kitchen. Your kitchen is not only the center of most activities in the house, but it also bears the most thoroughfare and daily business. Therefore, every corner of the kitchen space needs durability and quality that will elevate the aesthetics of your home, as well as contribute to your real estate value for resale.
Undermount kitchen sinks are sinks that are installed below the countertop platform or surface. The sink is fitted to the bottom of the countertop material from below and the edge of the countertop stays exposed, giving an appearance of sink being embedded in the countertop. Silicone-based sealants are generally used to firmly seal the undermount kitchen sink from beneath to ensure that the joint between the sink and the countertop slab is waterproof.
The selection of your kitchen sink will depend on…
- the size of the cabinet underneath your sink.
- the size of your countertop (whether it has backsplash or not).
- the material of your countertop.
- the way you will use your sink.
- your preferences.
- how much you can afford.
