Drop In Lav On A Top

Planning a bath remodel for a client in January, and they want to use a drop in lav on a granite counter top. We did another bathroom in their house last year, where they used undermounts, and for some reason they think they will prefer to use drop ins on this one.
I think it will look weird, but any reason that won't work?

Re: Drop In Lav On A Top

It's their money, and if they prefer the look, it will work just fine. Ask them if there's some problem with the undermounts in the other bathroom, to find out what's motivating the change.

Unless you go full vintage, drop-in sinks are one of those things can flag a bathroom as being dated and ready for a remodel, no matter how nice everything else is. It's up to them to judge how much that perception could affect resale value if at all, and whether they care about that at all.

Re: Drop In Lav On A Top

I did ask them to check with the interior designer, who gave it her approval, so I'm off the hook in that regard.
The reason the owner gave is she prefers the look of the drop in.
Obviously, the final decision is the owners

It's just a looks things--as long as they order a sink that is designed to be a drop in it will be fine.
