various configurations the most popular are single or super
single 1 and 3 quarter bowl equal double bowl and
entertainment or bar overall it’s important to choose
a sink configuration that fits your lifestyle single or larger basin
sinks are one of the most popular styles this is because we do last dish washing
by hand so we don’t need a separate bowls to
wash and rinse but double sinks are still popular and their inventive configurations like
low divide sinks which can accommodate larger pot handles
while still giving you sink divisional the 1 and 3 quarter sink offers a prep area
and a main area for washing these can sometimes be reversed whether
you are left or right handed so the small sink can be on the left or
right side bar or entertainment sinks are made for a
second sink on an island or in a bar area they come in a wide range of styles pick
one that fits your space and functionality let’s talk about
installation undermount sinks are positioned under
the counter surface this style is popular because it looks
clean and makes it easy to wipe crumbs into the sink it works best with granite engineered
stone or marble countertops when you undermount a sink you can choose a reveal which is the amount
of sink that shows under the edge of the counter top we recommend a1 eighth inch positive
reveal which shows a small part of the sink rim 0 reveal is a flush mount and a negative
reveal is under the counter on all sides this
is really a matter of preference you should ask your fabricator what your
options are depending on the sink and countertop that you have over mount or
drop in sinks are an alternative that works with all counter
types one advantage is that you can sometimes change a sink without
cutting a new hole in the counter new technologies like Blanco’s micro edge sinks offered almost flush mounted installed

tradition and modern looks for this classic style
sinks are typically about seven to eight inches deep but can
run as deep as 10 inches the depth of your sink depends on what
you want to put into it and how much you want to bend over to
lift out heavy items you can complement a shallow sink with
the higher faucet to accommodate filling large pots or if
you can’t have a high faucet you may need to a deeper sink it’s
important to know what your cabinet dimensions are before choosing ia sink as not all sinks fit into all cabinet sizes Blanco makes
special sinks like the precision 16 collection which work well with fragile counter
