New kitchen sink issue
Hi all, newbie here. I recently had my kitchen sink replaced and the new one is smaller than the old one. They are both 22" x 33", but apparently the old one was more rectangular and the corners on the new one are tapered. In other words there are now gaps in the corners of the countertop.

I was planning on redoing the laminate on the countertops in the near future, but do I now need to redo the entire countertop? Any ideas as to how I can make the existing countertop work with the new sink on the long term? Can filler pieces be tied into the countertop and then laminated over? Thanks.

No, you don't have to put in new countertops because of the small gaps on each corner. If you put down new laminate it would'nt hurt to glue some small blocks in each corner.

We bought a new kitchen sink that is 1 1/2" shorter than our present sink. How can we fill in the gap without tearing out the older counter top?
