A self-rimming sink can be a nice answer, but hard to clean especially the underside part where the sink attaches to the countertop because this area can be the growth of bacteria. If you want to have a kitchen sink that is easier to clean, choose an undermount even though the installation process is a little bit difficult. Before installing kitchen sink, buy faucet in the same style.
