Pros: A semirecessed sink sits at the front of the cabinet and countertop, allowing you to have shallower cabinets — maybe even as shallow as about 12 inches, depending on the model you choose. This frees up valuable floor space. It also keeps a lot of the counter space free. This can be a good option for young children and people with limited mobility, as you can get closer to the sink to reach the faucet without the obstruction of a countertop and cabinets.
Cons: The storage space underneath is limited. Also, because there isn’t any countertop around the front of the sink to catch water, splashes and spills onto the floor are more common, especially in a home with children.
Good for: Children’s bathrooms and tight spaces.
