How to Shop for Kohler Kitchen Sinks

As you design your kitchen and choose the style of your sink, there are several functionality and installation options you'll want to consider, especially since they may affect your faucet options. We've outlined the basic information below.

Smart Divide®

If you often wash large pots and pans yet want the functionality of a double-bowl sink, consider a Smart Divide sink. The divider is uniquely developed to make it easier to clean large, bulky items while keeping clean and dirty items separate.

See all Smart-Divide Kitchen Sinks.


Bowl Count

We offer single-, double- and triple-bowl sinks to match the way you work — whether you use your dishwasher for dishes and just wash large pots in the sink, or you hand-wash your dishes and want to separate clean and dirty items. You'll also find a variety of bowl sizes in our offering and may want to consider a sink with a wet work surface for food preparation.

Bowl Configurations

KOHLER sinks are available in a range of configurations, including double-equal and offset bowls. In addition, our Undertone® line of sinks can be grouped to create customized configurations.




Often called farmhouse sinks because they evoke images of traditional kitchens, KOHLER apron-front sinks have a stylish panel in front and are available in both tile-in and under-mount models. Self-Trimming® installation lets you install an apron-front sink with most conventional cabinetry. Our fresh approach to color and material includes apron-front options in KOHLER enameled cast iron and stainless steel for any décor.

A particularly easy model to install and frequently used with laminate counters, the top-mount sink's rim extends above the countertop surface and supports the sink's weight. Clips and bolts under the counter hold the sink securely in place. Many of our sinks accommodate both under-mount and top-mount applications.

These sinks mount beneath the counter and are most often used with solid-surface countertop materials like granite and marble. Under-mount installation highlights the curved contours of the sink bowl and makes counter cleanup a breeze. Many of our sinks accommodate both under-mount and top-mount applications.

Faucet Holes

You'll need to determine the number of faucet holes needed for your faucet when you choose a top-mount sink. The number will depend on the style of faucet you prefer and whether or not you'd like to include a sidespray, filtered water or soap dispenser, or additional functionality.


Under-Mount Sink Kits

This kit helps ensure quick, sturdy installation of most KOHLER enameled cast iron under-mount sinks, helping to eliminate the need to build a wood frame or drill into the countertop.




Bar sinks can be installed as a complement to the primary sink in the kitchen to help in food prep or cleanup or as a stand-alone sink in a family room, entertainment area or anywhere else you entertain guests.

See all Bar Sinks.



Our utility sinks allow you to take great style and functionality beyond the kitchen and into the laundry room, greenhouse, basement or garage. We offer a range of durable sinks that stand up to a variety of projects.
