More often than not, when you go to buy a sink, you'll find yourself standing in front of a top mount sink. These are sinks that have the inset bowl as well as a lip that lines the outer edge of the sink itself, and appears to sit on top of the counter upon which it was installed. Because of this design, they are commonly referred to as drop-in sinks. These are a great budget option, because they are less expensive than other types of sinks and also cost less to install, due to the simple nature of their installation. Should you ever wish to, they are also the easiest and least expensive option to replace. This way, if you ever find yourself wanting to make the decision to swap out your single bowl for a double bowl, or vice versa, you'll have the simplest path forward.
Additionally, if cabinet space is a priority for you, then an overmount style bathroom sink may be the very best option for you. Because of the way they need to be installed, undermount sinks often require more space inside of your cabinet, whereas overmount sinks leave a lot of room for your storage needs. This means that if you need more space under your sink for kitchen supplies, bath towels, or any other type of strorage needs, then this sink design may be the right choice for you and your household. This is true of the Fresno overmount bathroom sink, which is available in sixteen and fourteen gauge in three different types of metals: stainless steel, brass, and copper. Beyond that, this item can be made in a variety of customizations, and one of those customizations is texture. The possibilities for the looks you can create in one simple sink are nearly endless because of this.
As is common with bathroom sinks, this model has a two inch drain hole. This would make it suitable for both residential and commercial installation.
What makes a topmount sink the right option for me? Well, first of all, topmount sinks will protect the edges of your countertop. This is most important to consider on stone countertops, because overtime, the constant movement of pots and pans around the stone can weaken it over time, leading to chips. Although it would take time for these chips to show up, once there, they are incredibly difficult to repair. Additionally, topmount sinks are considered the easiest to keep clean, because there is no possibility of hidden build up between the lip and the countertop material. Simply clean your sink with the method you would use on any other appliance of its metal type, and it'll last you for years to come.
