Undermount Sink Reveals

So what do we mean by undermount sink reveals?  A picture best shows this…  Below shows you a “positive reveal” and a “negative reveal” around an undermount sink.  And yes, there is such a thing as a “zero reveal” where the countertop is flush with edge of the sink.  

A “zero reveal” or flush sink generally does have a cost upcharge.

The countertop runs short of the undermount sink flange edge with a positive reveal.  The countertop runs past the edge of the undermount flange with a negative reveal.  Which reveal is used most often?  Probably the “negative reveal”.  Generally, the positive and negative sink reveals have no up-charge.  However, the zero reveal will likely have an up-charge.

Negative Undermount Sink Reveal  So to recap…  You have three choices for a reveal for an undermount sink.  Positive, negative or zero reveal.  Keep in mind, the reveal doesn’t have to be 1/8 of an inch…  You can specify what that reveal is, but usually doesn’t exceed 3/8 of an inch.  Best time to talk about this is during the countertop template.  If you have more questions, send us a post.
