As I'm not a fan of inset sinks (I hate all that mopping up), I'm
thinking of installing a 1000 x 600 roll front s/steel type. At one end
there will be a worktop join (over the washing machine), but there seems
to be no joining strip to cope with that situation. I guess that's the
downside of full depth sinks, but has anyone got any bright ideas?
IIUC you want the worktop to butt up against the edge of the sink, but
have no way of fixing it too the sink?
Usually one would support that edge of the worktop on either a batten or
on small angle brackets fixed to the side of the unit that is supporting
the sink. Then run a bead of silicone along the worktop to sink joint.
I've seen a few where the side fold of the sink has been drilled and the
sink edge screwed into the worktop edge. Easy to do at the drainer end, but
could be difficult at the sink end - getting a driver in?

We're planning to re-fit our kitchen in a few months time, and share your
opinions about inset sinks. Problem is that we haven't managed to locate
anyone supplying the lay-on sinks. Do you have links to any suppliers?
Thanks Stuart. Those two links got me started in the right direction and
also led me to a few more at www.leisuresinks.co.uk and
www.rangemaster.co.uk. Now we only have the task of narrowing it down to
one that comes close to SWMBO's requirements without breaking the budget.
