Undermount Sinks - The smallest and the best!

Problem: Finding a great undermount sink for a small base cabinet.

I love deeper sinks (8"+ depth) and double sinks,  and always recommend them to clients, but deep or not, options are limited for sinks that fit into 30"cabinets... and they become even less bountiful for 24" cabinets.  When you're designing for a New York kitchen, it's likely that you'll want more drawers than that open space under the sink for storage, so small sink cabinets are a common solution.

Here are my picks for some sinks that work well in tight spaces:

Favorite double sink for a 30" cabinet, the Blanco 440163 Supreme Double Basin Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink

Blanco 440163

It's nice and deep, which is helpful for cleaning pots as well as for limiting splashing and the second bowl is a good size, which is so hard to find in a double sink. 

For a 33" cabinet, the Moen Lancelot 22392 is my hands down favorite. While many companies make a 33" sink cabinet, IKEA doesn't, so you'd have to use a 36".

This has nice deep bowls, and the second bowl can be used as a dish drainer to keep the counter space free.

And for a smaller, 24" cabinet there are these three options:

Elkay ELU1814 Gourmet

a good option at around $400.

Also, IKEA makes the BREDSKÄR, a great-looking sink that can be undermounted or rim-mounted on the counter. It's easy on the budget at $256, but I'm not sure that it comes shipped with the clips for undermounting, so your countertop fabricator may have to supply these.

This Kraus sink has a nice deep 9" basin and is also a great price at $159, which includes a rack and a drain!

And this one from the precision collection at  Blanco has these these stylish drain grooves. Cool!

I love the sleek design and the detailing in the basin

Buying tip: most sinks are sold separately from the drain, so remember to buy the drain, and get two for a double sink. 

Good luck in your sink hunt, and if you have any questions, please
