The Benefits of an Undermount Bathroom Sink
With so much going on in your bathroom every day, do you really need to spend extra time on tasks that just get in the way? You might be surprised to learn that the installation you choose for your bathroom sink - undermount, drop-in or vessel - can have a significant impact on your daily routine. In addition to installation, your bathroom sink choice will come down to a number of factors: style, color, and shape.
Let's talk about why an undermount bathroom sink makes so much sense.
Easy to Clean
When you choose an undermount bathroom sink, your vanity top smoothly transitions into the bowl of the sink. Because your counter top will typically overlap your sink by a few millimeters, you can easily sweep anything from around it into the sink. You won't have an edge where unwanted dirt and grime can collect, making daily maintenance and weekly cleaning quick and straightforward.
More Counter Space
An undermount sink allows the vanity top to extend to the edge of the basin, giving you extra counter space, where a drop-in sink - because it requires room for the edge of the sink to overlap the countertop - takes up more real estate. An undermount bathroom sink can come in especially handy when space is already at a premium.
The unobstructed surface of a bathroom vanity with an undermount sink minimizes the view of the basin, giving the space a rich, elegant aesthetic so you can show off your beautiful new counter top. More, an undermount bathroom sink provides an expansive appearance that makes the area look larger, too. Have you recently updated your bathroom?
