Why Kitchen Remodelers Suggest Installing Undermount Kitchen Sinks

When having your kitchen remodeled, thinking about replacing your existing kitchen sink may be one of the top priorities on your list. In such case, you may want to consider having your kitchen remodeler install an undermount kitchen sink along with any of the other additions you want—especially if you are looking to add (or retain) marble, granite, or soapstone countertops.

Undermount kitchen sinks have become very popular in home kitchens in recent years. These specialized sinks sit under the countertop’s surface, as opposed to resting right on top of your kitchen counter. Why is this design taking homeowners by storm?

1.    Smooth and Seamless

Let’s face it: the seamless look is all the rage today. From seamless showers to seamless cabinetry, seamless designs also work very well with your sink. Due to the fact that they do not have a distinctive raised edge or “lip”, undermount kitchen sinks allow your countertops to flow seamlessly. This becomes even more pronounced when you want to show off the beautiful, unique granite or marble countertops you are having installed in your new kitchen.

2.    No Cleaning Woes

The seamless integration of countertop to sink to countertop is more than just an aesthetic design choice. How often have you sighed in exasperation when wiping your countertops, only for dirt and food particles to lodge themselves on the rim of your sink? This is not a problem with undermount sinks, making it a very low maintenance and easy-to-clean option.

3.    Easy Installation

In general, installing an undermount kitchen sink is a simple task—assuming you are working with a trusted professional. This is where the value of working with a respected remodeling company like Valley Home Improvement, Inc. truly shines. Experienced pros can easily install an undermount kitchen sink in roughly 30 minutes while making sure that the sink stays firmly in place.
