Choosing a Drop-in Kitchen Sink
Drop-in kitchen sinks, like anything else, have advantages and disadvantages. One of the number one advantages is that they are less complicated to install, which means they cost less to install if you have someone else do it. Usually all you need is the correct size hole in your countertop, apply caulk and just drop the new sink in.
Also, since drop-in sinks are considered the standard type of sink, you can usually find more colors and styles to choose from. Finally, if you want to change your sink in the future, a drop-in sink can be easily removed and a new one installed in its place without any changes to the countertop.
One of the main disadvantages to a drop-in kitchen sink is the barrier between the countertop surface and the bowl that’s formed by the lip. You can’t just sweep food and liquids into the sink. If you try, you end up catching them at the edge where the sink and the countertop meet.
