Mounting Rings

Mounting a vessel sink requires specific hardware.  This is especially true if #1 your vessel is glass, and #2 if it does not have a flat bottom.  If the bottom of your vessel sink is rounded, then you will need to use a mounting ring, which is positioned between the countertop and the vessel sink. By placing your glass vessel sink on a mounting ring you protect both your sink, as well as the surface it rests on, especially when all the plumbing is tightened. Normally the mounting ring's finish will match that of the bathroom faucet and sink drain.

Currently the most common  choice for a new kitchen sink is the single bowl undermount. 

In the past decade, Solid Surface counter tops, such as Quartz, Granite, and other various stones, have become closely priced compared to laminate tops. When offered an option between a laminate top and a similarly priced solid top like quartz, most people choose the latter.  

With a solid surface top you now can use an undermount sink. 

Most new Kitchens are designed with using a "sink base cabinet". This can be a corner base ( commonly 30", 36", or 42"), or a linear sink base that measures 24". 27", 30", 33" or 36". Larger and smaller options exists, but they are not common. 

 With this information, now lets look at the single bowl and double bowl sink options. Single bowl options are available from as narrow as 10" wide, all the way to 57" wide - and larger. However, double bowl sinks generally start around 30" wide, and are common at 32"-33" wide, 

Simply stated, More sink options exist for a much larger demand of cabinet sizes.
