Stainless Steel Sinks

Non-porous stainless-steel sinks are a great option to pair with your solid surface countertops due to their resistance to everything from heat and water to grease and oil stains. What this means is that your sink will be resilient to any type of liquid substance that can usually penetrate through most materials, making it the most hygienic option on the list! If you are looking for a sink that provides you with ample space for your pots, pans, and cooking utensils, these sinks are even resistant to rust stains from skillets and edges of sharp knives.

There are several advantages to choosing an under-mount sink for your solid surface countertops. The rims of your under-mount sink are completely seamless with your countertop, making it easier for kitchen cleanup, increases your counter space, and gives you more freedom when deciding on faucet placement. When it comes to under-mount sinks there are three types of installation; positive reveal that allows the countertop to stop just before the edge of the sink, negative reveal where the counter hangs over the sink a little, and seamless where the counter and the sink’s edges are aligned. At Ray’s Countertop Shop, Inc. in Springfield, IL, we offer a variety of under-mount sinks for your solid surface countertop. Stop by for a free estimate today!

Top Mount Sinks

Also called drop-in sinks, top mount sinks are one of the easiest to install and are perfect for non-porous countertops like solid surfaces. The difference between under mount and top mount sinks is the lip that covers the edge of the countertop, preventing moisture from damaging the hard surface and cabinets below. At Ray’s Countertop Shop, Inc. in Springfield, IL, our top mount sinks are more affordable than any other option, making them perfect for homeowners on a budget and can easily complement the design of your kitchen or bathroom. Pair your solid surface countertop with a beautiful top mount sink from our shop today!
