The three basic varieties of kitchen sinks such as top mount, bar/prep and undermount sinks have their own advantages and special functionalities. Among them, top mount kitchen sinks, also known as drop-in or rimmed sinks, are suitable for every application and used extensively in both commercial and household sectors.
Top mount sinks are installed or dropped into a hole cut on top of a counter or benchtop. The lip of the sink overlaps countertop and makes an attractive covered edge.
- Top mount sinks simply fit into a pre-built cut out and thus do not need any additional support in the form of a brace or frame either. Faucet for the sink can be easily placed afterward as per your choice.
- Cost of top mount sinks tend to be less expensive compared to other forms of sinks since the labor and material costs associated with these sinks are less. Also, these sinks support an easier set-up process without consuming more time.
- Space management is another major characteristic of top mount sink and is perfect for both smaller and bigger sized kitchens. You do not need to make any extra arrangement of a place or position to install such a sink. A cabinet, display case, countertop or benchtop can easily support a drop-in sink.
You can find top mount sinks of single or double bowel models and zero radius or regular designs for your kitchen. A selection of well crafted and heavy duty stainless steel sinks with excellent sound deadening coating and proper drain as well as garbage disposal provision is an important factor.
Also, finding a sink, built of materials like stone, Granite or Copper, various sink accessories and other combo packages with matching faucet of a reputed brand would effectively meet all your needs.
