These under mounted sinks are commonly integrated with vanity cabinets because they are installed directly under the opening of the sink. The drop-in sinks are incorporated with simple counter tops to give space for other bathroom items such as toiletries, bathroom cleaners and miscellaneous accessories. The commonly used materials for these sinks are ceramic, fire-clay, porcelain, and china clay. Though there are models of drop-in sinks that are made of glass or copper, these kinds are not commonly seen in normal houses.

You will often see wall mounted sinks in public restroom because they do not take up a lot of room and you can fit a large number of sinks into a limited amount of space. Some people do use wall mounted sinks in their homes, but they should not be used if you have small children or people who will need to pull themselves up or rest on the sink with their entire body weight. Wall mounted sinks can be pulled away from the wall and that could cause a large amount of damage both to the wall and water damage.

Construction quality is made up of several factors - how corners are constructed, welding technique and proper dimensions for ease of installation. Quality can vary even when considering sinks made in the same town such as many of the sinks from Mexico. The buyer should make sure they are buying from a legitimate company that knows the product and is not selling \"seconds\". In the world of hand crafted products, not all sinks are created equal and oftentimes there are two or more quality levels sold by the same shop (i.e. \"firsts\" and \"seconds\").

This type of sink has a flange, or lip, that runs all the way around the sink and sits on top of the counter top. Because this flange overhangs the counter, the edge of the hole does not have to be finished. In fact, if the hole is kind of ragged, no one will ever know as long as you use a top mounted sink. The sink is then fastened from below the counter with screws and small plates that hold the sink in place.

In fact, in most cases you will want to have a professional install your undermount sink. If you happen to have a hole prepared in your counter matching the specifications of your sink, you can attempt the job yourself. The actual mounting of the sink is not the hard part. The difficult part is usually making and finishing the sink hole. Since the sink mounts under the cabinet, there is no flange showing on the counter. This means the counter top has to have a rounded and finished edge leading down to the sink. This is where you are very likely to need a professional.

If you made a big change in the layout of your sink, you will need to install some new pipes and connectors (and may want a plumber to help with that), but otherwise it should be the reverse process from when you disconnected them earlier. You will want to use PVC cement to seal the joints of the pipes, to prevent leaks.
