Drop In Sinks vs Undermount?
In the 8 Trends To Avoid post undermount sinks were cited as a trend. Another poster noted that they were likely to be problematic over time and be difficult to replace without changing out the countertop. I do understand the changing out part.
I have to choose a new sink for my remodel and I was certain about going with another stainless undermount. Mine has been great for 12 yrs of hard use (I rarely use my DW) and I find it so much easier to keep clean compared to the drop-in style I had for 20 yrs. before this one.
What am I missing? I can't imagine going back to a drop-in sink. I have a soapstone apron style sink at our lake house, which I love, but I don't think that style fits well with this house and layout.
Of all the things I've heard and read about going wrong with kitchens, I have never heard of anyone having their properly installed undermount sink fail.
