The sink has the old time apron sink appearance, and needs to be CUT INTO the vanity or counter to have that look. If you are comfortable using power saws and tools it will turn out looking really good. We needed a smaller sink for a cabin kitchen and it was just what we needed (it is really for a bathroom).
This is not a full top mounted sink. It is more of an apron sink. Yes, it has a unique design the sidesa as the description says but it's not finished on sides where the design is so it needs to be lowered into your counter. If you are looking for a top mount sink, do not buy this item.
