Recessed, or undermount, sinks are popular because they allow for easy clean-up of the adjacent surfaces and can be installed in practically any type of counter.

The method of attachment varies by manufacturer; installation instructions are included with all models.

In addition to the bowl, many sink manufacturers also offer countertops that are precut, predrilled, and prefit. All that is required is applying a bead of sealant and tightening some screws.
