Since vessel sinks are top-mounted, you’ll have to adjust your counter height to accommodate for the vessel’s depth. Since standard sink rim height is 34″ high, subtract your vessel’s depth from 34″ to figure out the ideal countertop height. You might try retrofitting a vessel sink to an existing console or dresser under 30” high to achieve an ergonomic sink height.
Also called a self-rimming sink, these have been the standard. It’s called drop-in due to the design. They are inserted into the cut-out from the top of a counter and hang from an overlapping rim. The reason for their being standard is sheer affordability. Plus, they are easily installed into any stock countertop. Typically, many counters tend to be standardized, allowing you to buy any drop-in sink despite depth, shape, or size.
An undermount sink presses up from the bottom of the countertop so it lays equal with the surface. They're often installed in stone countertops like granite. Plus, the faucets and handles are sunk from below as well, popping out of openings in the countertop.
The title of these sinks explains their design, and you can place them at a level appropriate for your needs. With a prominent space saving element, wall mounted sinks are ideal for small bathrooms or en-suites.
