Why choose a top mount sink?

While other sink installation types require the security of strong countertop materials, these sinks can “drop” into any countertop material, even laminate. Since the drop-in sink is designed to rest on top of the counter rather than underneath it, this style also frees up more base cabinet space for maximum storage.

Advantages of an undermount sink include superior ergonomics and easy cleaning, but requires a polished edge around the sink opening. Drop-in sinks can “drop” into any countertop material.

How would you measure for a replacement drop-in kitchen sink?
Consult with your installer to ensure that enough space is left behind the sink for the backsplash

If you are replacing your existing drop-in sink with a new one, measure the interior width of the sink top at the widest spot, and then subtract 4-inches. For laminate countertops with a backsplash, you can install a drop-in sink that is up to 20 1/2" deep. Consult with your installer to ensure that enough space is left behind the sink for the backsplash, faucet fixtures and other accessories.
