Frequently Asked Questions

Are drop-in sinks a good option for your kitchen countertop?

If you have laminate countertops, drop-in sinks are the only option: the particle board below the laminate surface isn’t strong enough to support undermount sinks but plays well with self-rimming basin types. It wouldn’t be fair to sing the praises of drop-in sinks without mentioning their problems as well.

Can I install a drop-in kitchen sink myself?

Homeowners can install a drop-in kitchen sink on their own as long as it is a one-for-one replacement. After cleaning away any old caulk, lay down a bead of caulk, set the sink into the hole, center it, and secure it with clips underneath the countertop. While an exact replacement in size is generally easier, there are things to consider.

What is a drop-in sink?

A drop-in sink has a visible lip around its perimeter that rests flat on the countertop. The sink basin drops straight into the countertop cut-out, and the perimeter lip holds everything in place. Drop-in sinks are secured by hidden metal clips under the countertop as well as a bead of silicone caulk under the sink's edge.

What is the difference between a drop in and undermount sink?

An undermount sink is the opposite of a drop-in sink. Instead of having the ability to be literally dropped into a hole in the countertop, an undermount kitchen sink is installed below the counter, resulting in no lip between the sink and the countertop. Instead, the edge of the sink will be level with your countertop.
