installing a undermount sink as drop in


will that be an issue to use an under mount sink as a drop in? i'm putting in a sink in an ikea 12inch cabinet (smallest they make) and the room inside the cabinet is only 11.5. most bar sinks are the right size the the ones that are deeper are listed as undermount.. was wondering if there will be any issues using it as top mount?? tx

i dont see any problem with that. The only difference is that the under mounts have a flat flange so that they sit flush with the bottom of the counter top. To the right person, one might be able to tell the difference, but most people probably wont even notice. Why not just use it as an under mount? Are you using a formica top.

yes, i'm using a formica top because the wife wants a counter top with sink on top of a washer/dryer. the measurements are so strange that i'm forced to do a lot of manual cutting.
