The advantages of the undermount sink

Undermount sinks are characterized by being installed below the kitchen top, making the sink, once installed, perfectly aligned with the work surface.

It is essential to check the feasibility of this option, considering the dimensions of the sinks available and making sure that there is enough space under the countertop to place the sink bowl.

The assessment is particularly important in the case of older kitchens, where there are often numerous pipes and branches under the sink which would prevent undermount installation.

Once you've determined the feasibility, it's important to consider the pros and cons of this setup. Among the advantages of the undermount sink, a notable aspect is the cleaner and more sophisticated, "disappearing" design.

In addition to the aesthetic aspect, the undermount sink is easier to clean thanks to the absence of edges and unevenness with the worktop. This convenience is particularly useful when you have little time available and you want to clean the sink quickly to be able to devote yourself to other activities.

The undermount sink also allows you to optimize the space in the kitchen, making the environment more functional and practical. Finally, this solution is extremely versatile, with a wide range of models available: in the Evhoc collections you can find sinks with one or two bowls, with or without accessories, rectangular o

Undermount sink: when is this solution convenient?

Choosing an undermount sink depends on several factors, including aesthetics, functionality, and budget:

  • Aesthetic aspect: the undermount sink gives an elegant and clean look to the kitchen. The hidden edges of the sink create a continuous and uniform surface, which can be particularly suitable for modern or minimalist design kitchens.
  • Ease of cleaning: undermounts are easier to clean than traditional sinks. Since there are no protrusions or joints between the countertop and the sink, you can simply sweep the residue right into the sink without any obstructions..
  • Countertop materials: if your countertop is made of materials such as granite, marble or quartz, installing an undermount sink can highlight the beauty of the countertop by being borderless and uneven.
  • Customization: undermount models come in many shapes and sizes, allowing for more customization in choosing the sink that fits your needs. You can choose between single or double sinks, larger or smaller sizes, depending on the space available and your preferences.

 

However, it's also important to consider the potential drawbacks of an undermount model. For example, a higher cost than traditional sinks, the need for proper installation from professionals and to have space below the worktop. Make sure you weigh the pros and cons carefully before making a decision.

How to install undermount sinks by Evhoc

To install a sink correctly, we always recommend hiring an expert. In case you want to proceed independently, there are still some steps that you absolutely must respect when installing an undermount sink:

  1. Insert the sink into the opening. You may need to cut part of the cabinet partition under the sink. The width and height of the hole should match that of the sink, adding an extra centimeter.
  1. Secure the sink from below with clamps. You must tighten evenly and be careful not to crush the sealing tape.
  • Insert and turn on the faucet.
  1. Replace the siphon. Again, apply silicone sealant or sealing tape around the edges of the sink to prevent water seeping underneath.

Evhoc guarantees you all the assistance you need in evaluating the right product and giving you all the technical information necessary for installation.
