Undermount sinks offer several advantages over conventional drop-in sinks. Because they are installed underneath the countertop, the sink rim does not show. An undermount sink gives a more minimalist appearance, increases counter space, makes counter cleaning easier and allows freedom when choosing where your faucet is placed.

Hard Surfaces Work Best

The sinks tend to be deeper and weigh more -- especially with a sink full of dishes -- they require solid weight-bearing and water-resistant countertop materials. Laminate or tile countertops are not well-suited to this type of sink. Marble, quartz, granite and concrete countertops are the best options.

 

 

Marble and Quartz Countertops

Marble is a hard, durable countertop that provides a traditional look. An advantage of using marble countertops is that small nicks and scratches can be polished out. Disadvantages are that marble chips and scratches easily and requires periodic sealing to avoid stains. Quartz, like marble, is a good choice for undermount sinks. An advantage of quartz over marble is that quartz countertops do not require sealing to protect against stains.

 

 

Granite Countertops

Like marble, granite countertops are very solid and durable. Granite can take a lot of wear and handle heavy weights. Granite countertops come in a large variety of colors, giving you many options in designing your kitchen. Like marble, granite requires periodic sealing to protect against stains. If chips develop on edges or corners, a professional will need to be contacted to repair them.
