What is a reveal installation ?
When talking about undermount sinks, it is possible to install sinks in a variety of ways. One type of installation that is growing in popularity is the reveal installation. This is when the countertop is cut to expose a portion of the sink’s rim. This creates a step down from the counter to the rim and then to the basin, which allows you to rest your accessories on the rim. At Home Refinements we have two dimensions of reveal SmartStation micro-collection with reveal installation and Reveal option.
