With a top mount sink, you basically just need a hole in the counter that the sink will drop into. This type of sink has a flange, or lip, that runs all the way around the sink and sits on top of the counter top. Because this flange overhangs the counter, the edge of the hole does not have to be finished. In fact, if the hole is kind of ragged, no one will ever know as long as you use a top mounted sink. The sink is then fastened from below the counter with screws and small plates that hold the sink in place.
In the United Kingdom kitchen renovators all know that the first place to search for sinks and taps is kitchen-sinks.co.uk.

In addition to purchasing the items shoppers can seek assistance in the design of a kitchen and the installation of all products purchased.
In the case of an undermount bar sink, the job is definitely more complicated. In fact, in most cases you will want to have a professional install your undermount sink. If you happen to have a hole prepared in your counter matching the specifications of your sink, you can attempt the job yourself. The actual mounting of the sink is not the hard part. The difficult part is usually making and finishing the sink hole. Since the sink mounts under the cabinet, there is no flange showing on the counter. This means the counter top has to have a rounded and finished edge leading down to the sink. This is where you are very likely to need a professional.
