Vessels can be mounted on the countertop or recessed into it. When vessels with rounded bottoms are mounted above the counter, a sink ring is typically installed below the basin in order to stabilize it. Undermount : Similarly align the sink under the countertop.

Also to know is, can a vessel sink be recessed?

Vessel sinks are bowl shaped sinks that sit above the countertop. They can be installed in two ways: resting completely on top of the counter or, in the case of round ceramic or stone vessels, recessed partially into the counter. Glass vessels and shapes other than round must be installed on the countertop's surface.

Likewise, can I use an undermount sink as a top mount? undermount as top - mount Our undermount stainless steel kitchen sinks do not have the installation holes already drilled and technically can be used in a top - mount fashion. We do not recommend this though because the flange (or rim) is flat which leaves a somewhat sharp edge and makes it hard to properly seal.
