Cutting and Fitting for Integral Kitchen Sinks

Postby Gemlousully » Sun Dec 09, 2018 6:15 am

Hi, can anybody offer any advise on integral kitchen sinks.
Have considered a corian worktop but there pretty expensive to put in a holiday rental. I would much prefer to use an Integral sink, is there companies who will cut the worktop with specialist equipment to fit the sink and oven worktop?

Hi, Integral or integrated sinks are usually made from the same material as the worktop and the sink is "integrated" into the worktop by joining with adhesive or welded depending on the material. The joints are then ground, sanded and if required polished, so that the sink looks seamless to the worktop as shown on this page.

If you just mean that the worktop is rebated and the sink is mounted flush to the surface like this
then that would be a flush fitting sink.

Either way you really need the worktop company to fit the sink. They will need to be a solid surface worktop like Corian, Minerva, quartz or granite unless they are stainless integrated sinks.

Hope this helps.
