Kitchen Design/Remodeling/Replace kitchen sink (exact size???)


Hi Craig -
We want to replace our current kitchen sink (undermount) but need help determining the proper size of the new/replacement sink.  

Here are the current measurements and other notes:
Counter is granite

Hole for current sink - undermounted - is 32" wide by 21" long (depth is 9")

The gap (counter top) between back of the sink and wall is 2.5"

Gap (conter top) btwn front of sink and edge of counter is 2"

What size sink should we consider buying?  And, are we locked into undermount or can we consider over counter mount?  Knowing our limitations will greatly help finding the right sink.  Thanks very much.


If you replace with under mount sink you will need to use exact same sink.  If you change sink style, you may need to remove tips and have sink edge re-cut and polished.

If you switch to drop in sink, you can use any as long as they fill existing hole and have enough ledge to support the sink.

Pretty straight forward.

Hope this helps you out.

Thanks for using all experts.
