I think I took notice of overmount or self rimming sinks when Lonny partnered with Kohler in their most recent issue. They featured the Tresham collection,
Then from there I started noticing them more,
I think with their overstated molding-like frames they are directed at more classic, elegant baths.
Here’s an oval,
Let’s compare the self rimming variety to its undermount counterpart,
Undermount definitely creates more of a seamless look,
In a kitchen, an undermount sink makes counter cleanup easier because you just sweep the mess in to the sink. In the bathroom, that’s not really an issue.
(P.S. isn’t that blue/grey vanity fantastic, I want to try that!)
Do you thinkÂ both sink stylesÂ have their merits? Which one do you prefer?
Thanks for playing,
And now a quick word from our sponsors!

I have a Kohler self-rimming sink on my bathroom remodel wish list. I’m not sure why I want it, just that I prefer the look for this particular bathroom. I agree with you that it seems classic and elegant which is definitely the look I’m going for here.
I’m not too crazy about the over mount sink – it seems like a pain to clean! BUT I think that version would look awesome if you made a sink out of an antique console/buffet/vanity type thing. I’m dying to try that! – Boo
I agree that the over-mount is like having nice millwork, but wouldn’t have thought of that until you pointed it out.
Regarding that blue/grey vanity. When I first saw that very picture, I thought the same thing. Out with the white one, in with the dark!
The over-mount is beautiful. I think I prefer it too, but wouldn’t have thought of it either!
