Are you looking for renovating your kitchen? Tired with your old, ugly overmount sink? Then you might want to consider an undermount kitchen sink. Here we will talk about what it actually is and what is the pro and con of it.

Undermount sinks are different with traditional sinks. Traditional sinks are mounted on top of the countertop. The countertop will support the weight of traditional sinks. Meanwhile, undermount sink is a relatively new style that has an increasing popularity.

The Pro and Con of an Undermount Kitchen Sink

The undermount kitchen sink is installed under the kitchen countertop, instead of on top of it. This style of sink is attached under the countertop by the use of a strong adhesive.

The different installation makes and undermount sinks look different than traditional sinks. Traditional sinks will have sink lips on top of the countertop, while undermount sinks won’t. The countertop will have a clean look and flow seamlessly to the sink with no lips to disturb.

This kind of under-counter installation has an advantage, which is the easy cleaning of the countertop. Since there is no lip, you can just wipe away the food and spills straight into the sink. You won’t be able to do this with traditional sinks, which usually store crumbs and dirt in its edge. Uncleanable stuffs can lead to mildew and bacteria growth that is not healthy for your family.

However, what you have to consider before moving to undermount sinks is that it only works well with water-resistant and weight-bearing countertop. Also, the adhesive that keeps the sink attached is often not water-resistant. That’s why you have to watch out to not overfill the sink with water as it can weaken the adhesive.

To install an undermount kitchen sink, it is better to hire professional workers who have experience installing it. Although it is more expensive, you will have less problem and your sink can stay put for longer of time. The design looks good and it can be beneficial to your kitchen’s cleanliness.
