ABOUT KITCHEN SINKS
The main types of kitchen sinks are - Drop-on, Inset, and Undermount. Each of these can be made from three main types of material: stainless steel, composite, and ceramic. Drop-on kitchen sinks rest on top of a worktop or supporting frame. Inset kitchen sinks drop into a cut-out in the surface of the worktop; a lip around the edge of the kitchen sink rests on top of the worktop, and provides a watertight seal. Undermount kitchen sinks a fixed below a cut-out in the worktop. It is also possible to incorporate a stainless steel sink into a full stainless steel worktop and splashback.
