We had an undermouted sink in the kitchen, under a concrete countertop, wife hated it. It was only about 5 years old, was in the house when we bought it. We tore it all out and put in Formica countertop with a top mounted cultured granite sink, much nicer, and lower for my short wife!

Just curious what you didn't like about the concrete with undermount? I make concrete countertops so I'm always curious as to what people think.

The cabinets were a standard height, then there was 3/4 plywood screwed to that, with the sink cut into it. Then the 2" concrete countertop was on top of that with the sink flange sandwiched in between. This put the top of the countertop almost 2" higher than standard, and it was a deep sink, very awkward! You really can't make the cabinets any shorter or a dishwasher wouldn't fit. The person that cast the concrete put the reinforcing right where the plumbers drilled there holes for the faucet, so it was severely weakened, very poorly planed! Maybe if it was all well planed it would be ok.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeWhat someone else thinks: concrete, granite & such hard materials with undermount sink gives a perfect hard rim for chipping all of wife's china. Over/top mount SS rim is much more forgiving. 2 cents.
