This is also known as the drop-in or self-rimming sink seen regularly in Indian kitchens. A top mount sink, to put it simply, has a ridge that fits over the countertop. It has a sink rim or lip which rests on top of the countertop. These kinds of sinks are easier to install and are relatively cheap.

Undermount Kitchen Sink

The undermount sink is recessed below the countertop, so it effectively hangs underneath the counter. Since the lip or rim of the sink does not sit on top of the counter, it creates a meticulous flow from the countertop into the sink. The undermount sink is also easy to clean because there are no crevices where normally dirt or grime gets accumulated.

Integrated Sink
