In the Indian Market there is a sink available for every need and every budget — and the variety of options may overwhelm you. You’ll need to decide upon the sink’s material, the size and configuration of the bowl or bowls, the method for mounting it on the countertop, and more.
Installing a Sink in a New Countertop
Measure the space between cabinets to determine the maximum length of your new sink. Make sure you have enough counter space on either side of the sink for prep, especially in a corner location. Position the sink closer to the front edge of the counter for comfort and access.
Replacing an Existing Sink
Measure the opening in your existing countertop and choose a new sink to fit. Most drop-in sinks have a ½ inch lip so you will need to consider this for a proper installation.
Make sure to consider sink depth. Additions, like garbage disposals, can add significant depth. Consider a deeper sink for larger utensils.
Different Mounting/Installation Types for Sinks Available in India
Under Mount Kitchen Sinks
Under Mount Sinks increase the natural beauty of your kitchen top as they fit neatly under the kitchen tops and allow more space due to the rimless design.
Under Mount sinks are slightly more expensive and require higher maintenance as they are stuck to the kitchen platform with adhesives.

“Basin Split” refers to the percentage of space each basin takes up for a double bowl sink. The most common options are 50/50, where the sink bowls are the same size, and 60/40, where one basin is larger for larger pots and pans.
Different Sinks Available Based on With/Without Drainboards in India
What is a Drainboard: The drainboard is the ribbed flat portion right next to the sink bowl
The drainboard is an ideal place for drying hand washed utensils, vegetables etc. Since it is ribbed and sloped, the water drains down directly into the sink.
While it is high on utility, the drainboard will take away some of your kitchen top space. Prefer a sink with out drainboard for small kitchens
