What is an undermount sink and what are the benefits?
An undermount sink is a sink that sits underneath the countertop– attaches to the bottom of the granite from under. And the benefits of having a sink that sits underneath is twofold. One, you can wipe all of your stuff on top of the countertop without a lip of an overmount sink to push over directly into your sink. It’s so easy. That changes everything. You take your sponge out, wipe everything right into the sink, no mess, no hassle. Second benefit is undermount sinks are typically deeper than topmount sinks. The average stainless steel topmount sink that sits on top of your countertops is about 5 inches deep. An undermount sink is about 10 inches deep from the top of the countertop to the bottom of the sink. That’s about double. That means easier washing. It means you’re going to wash your small dog in there. You can put baby in there. You can pretty much do anything you want in that undermount sink. It’s going to transform your life. If you’re the dishwasher in the family, this thing is going to be like a life saver for you.
