Due to the sleekness of the sink, wiping down your countertop and sink area has never been easier. How you clean your undermount sink will largely depend on the kind of material it is. For copper sinks, gentle soap and water is often best used while stainless steel may require more heavy-duty products. Porcelain sinks are one of the easiest materials for wiping down and getting “clean and shiny”.
Undermount sinks tend to be a bit more difficult to install because they are designed to fully be placed under your countertop. Some countertops will not work with an undermount sink so this is an important factor to keep in mind. Undermount sinks are installed by being mounted underneath the countertop and one's cabinets. This gives them a sleep look with an invisible rim. Most under-mount sinks do not come with pre-drilled holes, allowing you to choose exactly where you want to place your faucet.

What are the cons of an under-mount sink?
Although there are numerous benefits of an under-mount sink, the process of installation can be a barrier for some people. Unfortunately, with an undermount sink, there needs to be adequate counter and cabinet space below the countertop as this is where the sink will be placed. Sometimes counters do not have enough space or foundational strength to support an under-mount sink. Undermount sinks can also be tougher to change in the future. This is because, during installation, a custom-sized hole must be cut under the counter to fit your undermount sink into place. If done right, these are very durable and will last a long time, but may be harder to replace in the future if need be.
Will under-mount sinks ruin my counter from the installation process?
Undermount sinks won’t ruin your counter as long as the installation process is done right. The one thing that may be a barrier is if you wish to change or replace your sink in the future. Undermount sinks require a custom hole to be cut underneath the countertop, so keep this in mind when taking measurements for your undermount sink to be installed.
What is the difference between an under-mount sink and a standard sink?
An undermount sink is primarily how it is installed and sits in the counter of the sink. With a standard sink, the edges are usually raised and sit around the outside of the sink making it easier for food and water to get trapped.
How do I measure an undermount sink for installation?
The hole for your under mount sink should be the same size as the actual sink, minus the rim. Taking proper measurements from one rim to the opposite rim of your sink both length and width, and then subtracting the length of the rim itself will give you an approximate size of what you’re working with. The overall width of the sink rim should be equal to or less than the interior width of your sink cabinet. This will allow for easier installation and replacement of the sink.
What kind of sealant should I use for an under-mount sink?
It is important that your undermount sink is sealed properly during the installation process, which can be one of the more difficult steps. Over time, 100% silicone-based sealant is found to have the best use and prevent cracking or breakage. When a bracket is installed, almost any type of water-tight sealant will be functional. We often utilize siliconized acrylic caulk because it is water-based, long-lasting, and much easier to apply.
