Undermount Stainless Steel Sinks
August 10, 2017

Easy on the Eyes

Undermount stainless steel kitchen sinks are installed below the countertop and secured in place with a silicon-based adhesive. This installation method is popular for customers who have granite, marble, or other stone countertop because the perimeter of the sink opening remains visible. Not only are undermount sinks considered aesthetically pleasing, they are also hygienic options because their rimless installation allows remnant water or food debris to be swept directly into the sink.


MR Direct undermount stainless steel sinks are constructed from cold-rolled 304-grade stainless steel. The superior-quality composition and corrosion-resistant properties ensure a strong product that you can depend on. Each undermount sink comes fully-insulated to diminish sound, and has a brushed satin finish to help conceal any scratches that may occur over time.

Cleaning your Undermount Sink

To clean your sink after everyday use, it's important to rinse with water and towel dry afterwards. Most cleaners contain chemical additives that will compromise the luster of your sink if they are used daily, but regularly rinsing with water is sufficient.

Once a week, saturate your sink with a mild abrasive cleaner and use a soft cloth or sponge to scrub with the grain of the sink. Rinse immediately and towel dry. Never use steel wool or allow chlorides to remain in contact with your sink for long periods of time.
