How to Install Undermount Kitchen Sinks

A botched installation can ruin even the highest quality countertop. Today let’s take a look at how to install an undermount kitchen sink with a focus on properly supporting the weight of the sink. Small bathroom or bar sinks are easier – they typically can be mounted directly to the concrete using the hardware provided with the sink. Kitchen sinks are too heavy to mount directly to the concrete, so special preparations must be made.

Order of Installation

It’s very important to install an undermount kitchen sink beforethe countertop slabs are set down. Once the countertop slabs are set down, you usually will not be able to fit the sink through the hole, and you won’t be able to properly seal between the sink and the underside of the countertop.

  1. First install the sink supports. We’ll talk about 3 different ways to install sink supports below.
  2. Then set the sink onto the support frame.
  3. Apply a generous bead of caulk around the top of the sink’s flange. Use silicone or siliconized acrylic kitchen and bath caulk.
  4. Install the adjacent countertop slabs over the sink, sandwiching it between the countertop and the cabinet frame.

Types of Sink Supports

For concrete countertops, the concrete should not bear the weight of the sink. Instead, you build a support out of plywood, and the cabinet frame together with the support bear the weight of the sink.

Commercial Bracket

The first type of support is a commercial sink bracket sold by granite supply companies. These brackets are designed to be installed onto the cabinet frame. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions.Commercial undermount sink Bracket

Custom Wood Frame

The second type of support is a custom made wood frame that mounts to the cabinet walls. The frame supports the sink by its flanges. Always leave some wiggle room between the sink bowl and the cradle so that you can align the sink with the countertop hole.brackets for undermount sinkundermount sink installed on brackets

Custom Plywood Shelf

The third type of support is a sheet of ¾” plywood shelf (yellow, below) that’s cut to fit inside the cabinet. The plywood has a hole cut into it that the undermount sink drops into. The hole in the plywood must be large enough to allow for the sink to be moved to align it with the hole in the countertop. Sometimes it’s useful to rout a roundover along the inside edge of the hole. In addition, it’s important to cut holes for all the plumbing and faucet fixtures that mount to the countertop. The hole in the plywood must be large enough to allow for tools to access the faucet and plumbing hardware.Custom Plywood Shelf for undermount sink

Caulking

It is very important to create a watertight seal between the underside of the countertop and the sink. Take care when applying the silicone caulk along the flange of the sink that it is generous enough to create a watertight seal, but not so much that it is messy.

Bare concrete will react with silicone to produce a nasty-looking, oatmeal-like consistency that will ooze out of the sink joint. Therefore, you must seal the underside of your sink openings so that only sealed concrete touches the silicone.

You get to choose the size, shape, color, and surface texture, so you can have a sink that fits perfectly, size-wise, into your space and suits your home style-wise. The look of concrete works with a wide range of design styles—rustic or contemporary, traditional or hip. And unlike most marble, granite, and engineered stone, which often has to be shipped from abroad, concrete is made of locally sourced material—gravel rock, sand, and cement—and thus has a smaller carbon footprint.

What are the disadvantages of a concrete sink?

Perfectionists need not apply. Concrete has natural variations in color and texture that might irk those looking for a uniform look, and it will show wear—or, to use a more appealing expression, develop a patina.

But the main drawback, as Cheng points out, is that “no matter what you put in your concrete, it’ll never be as hard as granite or engineered stone. Concrete is more like limestone in terms of hardness.” That means it’s porous and must be treated to prevent staining and discoloration. It also means that the surface is fairly easily scratched and nicked.

Can you use a concrete sink in the kitchen?

“I’ve never recommended putting a concrete sink in a kitchen,” says Cheng. “The finish just won’t hold up over time, owing to the constant abrasion from pots, food chemicals, and harsh cleansers.” Nevertheless, many people are indeed installing concrete sinks in their kitchens and embracing the well-worn look that might come along with it.

For those less tolerant of imperfection, however, the bathroom provides a gentler home for the concrete sink; there, it’s subjected to little more than tooth-brushing and face-washing.

What types of concrete sinks are available?

The great thing about concrete sinks is that, when customized, they can be made in whatever length, width, and depth you want. And the style is variable too: Cheng often creates long trough sinks with two spigots for the bathroom, so that family members can share the space. Double sinks are also an option, as are vessel sinks, especially in smaller baths or powder rooms.
