But it is not advisable to buy cheap stainless steel sinks as they would be made of very thin material and would not be durable. Moreover cheaper stainless steel sinks would get scratches on them easily. A good quality stainless steel sink would be easy to clean and won’t get scratched easily. It is better not to get the mirror type stainless steel sinks. Frequent use will scratch its surface and the shiny new look will become a foggy dirty look. Also do check if there is insulation under the sink bowl. Insulation tends to minimize the noise created by water drumming.

It can be a stand-alone cabinet or a series of cabinets that cover an entire wall. The sink is usually installed in one of two ways. The first is when the sink is molded to the counter. In this case the sink is indistinguishable from the rest of the counter. The second type of installation is a self rimming installation. In this case the sink is lowered into a hole cut in the counter that is slightly small than the rim of the sink. The sink sits on the counter just outside of all four sides of the hole. This option is good for master bathrooms or larger second bathrooms in your home where you need a lot of storage.

In the past most people preferred a double bowl sink, however a single large bowl is being selected much more frequently. It would seem many people are using the dishwasher and they want a larger single sink to wash just the pots and pans. It should be noted that the largest undermount single bowl on the market today is typically 30 inches long (measured horizontally) by 18 inches wide (front to back). This does not seem like big difference from the typical double bowl that measures 33 inches long (measured horizontally) by 22 inches wide (front to back), but the reality is the reduction of the sink size allows for much greater room behind the sink which will now open up your faucet choices and it also allows placement of the sink a little farther back in the countertop which allows the front edge of the counter top more meat which helps significantly in keeping breakage of the countertop to a minimum. This is truly important because most solid surface countertops fail at this critical point not only at installation but a year or two after installation after your fabricator is now no longer responsible.

Next, you should attach them to the underside of the counter-top and drive each nut into place. Some of the sinks manufactured today are made from enamel cast-iron or porcelain. These are classified as self-rimming as they usually rest on the source of the counter-top meaning they do not need clips. Though such models are simple to install they have a raised edge that does not allow you to clean debris from the counter-top directly to the sink. Apply a silicone sealant before lowering the sink into position. Reconnect the disposal, trap and supply, and then turn on the water supply. Test the taps ensuring they are operating properly. Wait for a few hours allowing the silicone sealant to dry completely before cleaning up.
