Small width undermount sink (rectangle?)

Posted by mamattorney (My Page) on

I just got off the phone with a granite fabricator. I have a narrow vanity (17.5" deep with a current vanity top depth of 18") and I was discussing using a remnant to make a new vanity top.

She told me that between the backsplash and the faucet holes that I would only have 12.75" for the sink and that it would be a tiny sink.

Current sink is a drop in over a laminate top. I know drop ins over stone are not at all popular and it's not my first choice.

Does anyone have a VERY narrow undermount sink that they are happy with? I think I would get another 1.5" if I didn't do a backsplash, but I'm not wild about that either.

How wide can you go? There are several rectangular vitreous china sinks on overstock that have reviews that say they fit in an 18" deep vanity:

Thanks for the link. I have found two sinks I think may work:

Porcher 12100-00.001 Marquee Petite Rectangle Undercounter Lavatory - White

and

Courtyard White Undermount Lavatory Sink

Has anyone used either one?

Since you will have very little space between the back of the faucet and the wall (or backsplash), you may want to use a drain stopper that is not connected to the faucet.

This means you can remove the pull-up handle/knob from the backside of the faucet. I'm not sure what that type of stopper is called, but it operates totally separate from the faucet....same as a kitchen faucet and drain stopper.

Umbrella drains are probably the most popular right now.

BTW, mamattorney, faucetdirect has the Porcher right now for $147.50 plus an additional 3% off. (There are also a couple of pics of it installed in the reviews there.)
