Selecting a kitchen sink style for your granite countertop

Most people don’t know how many styles are available for a granite countertop kitchen sink. The kitchen is a place where you’ll probably be preparing a meal or making your coffee several times a day. It is an important central feature of your home that you’ll use to feed your family, entertain guests, and store all your perishable food items. Presentation of your kitchen is accented by selecting a style of kitchen sink . We can begin by showing you some choices when you’re thinking about that remodel.

Undermount Granite Countertop Sinks

First, hidden seams make it easier to keep clean because the sink is installed underneath the granite countertop. Next, its location underneath the granite countertop allows any debris from the counter to easily fall into the sink. Over time, this might prevent the buildup of bacteria from food or other organic material. It is almost the standard practice for kitchen granite countertop installations due to these couple of factors.


Overmount (Top Mount or Drop-in) Granite Countertop Sinks

The one advantage that it does have is that you can simply drop it in. This means that you don’t have to worry about the actual granite countertop being able to bear the weight load of the sink. One negative are that you can clearly see the seam between the granite countertop and the sink.
