7 Best Drop-In Sinks for Your DIY Renovation
Whether you are tackling a complete remodel or just want to freshen up the look of your kitchen, drop in sinks offer the fastest and simplest way for a DIY enthusiast to get the job done! Also known as top mount sinks, this style installs from above the counter with a built-in deck that rests directly on the countertop – eliminating any need for specialized mounting hardware or supports. All Kraus stainless steel drop in sinks are constructed with an extra-thick 4mm mounting deck for an extra durable design that will not warp or bow overtime like other drop in sinks on the market. Unlike undermount and farmhouse sink styles, the drop in sink deck allows for installation with almost every type of countertop material, and provides extra flexibility if your countertop cutout is slightly too large. This added choice in countertop material, and the ability to re-use existing countertops allows for a more budget-friendly kitchen remodel solution. These sinks are a great way to increase the value, function, and look of your kitchen, all while remaining easy to install with the basic home toolkit. Here are a few of our favorite drop in sinks for your next kitchen renovation.
