What are the different types of kitchen sinks?
There are several different types of kitchen sinks available, each with their own unique features and benefits:
Drop-in: Also known as self-rimming sinks, these sinks are designed to sit on top of the countertop and have a lip or rim that holds them in place. They are easy to install and are available in a variety of materials and sizes.
Undermount: These sinks are installed beneath the countertop, giving the countertop a seamless look. They are typically more difficult to install than drop-in sinks, but they are considered to be more elegant and modern-looking.
Apron front or Farmhouse: These sinks are designed to be installed with the front of the sink visible, giving the sink a more rustic, farmhouse-style look. They typically require a specific countertop cutout to fit.
Integrated: These sinks are integrated into the countertop, resulting in a seamless, cohesive look. These are more difficult to install and not as common as other types
Bar/prep: These are smaller and shallower than other types of sinks, and are typically used for food preparation or as a second sink in a kitchen.
Corner: As the name suggest this sink is designed to fit into corner of the kitchen and make use of an otherwise wasted space
