I plan to remodel my kitchen myself and will install granite tiles on my countertops since I don't have the equipment or skills to cut granite slabs.

When working with tile, I'm confused as to what style I should choose for the kitchen sink.

I recommend a tile-in cast-iron kitchen sink. This type of kitchen sink is a drop-in style install, so it's easier to work with than an under-mount sink.

But, the big advantage with a tile-in sink is it features a flat and square-edged rim, equal in thickness to most tiles.

Basically, the sink is like a big tile that fits perfectly to the tiles that surround the sink. Grout finishes the joints between sink and tile, just like when tile meets tile. End result is the sink becomes part of the tile countertop.

Bottom line: A tile-in cast iron kitchen sink can help you complete your puzzling problem.
