To install a recessed sink, you need to cut a hole in the countertop to accommodate it. Some manufacturers will supply a cutting template with the sink. If not, you can draw your own guidelines. It is advisable to install the faucets and waste assembly to the sink or countertop before the sink is secured in place because access is much easier. To start, position the sink face-down on the countertop, making sure the space at the front and back is even. Draw a pencil guide line around the sink.
