Undermount kitchen sink...why is everything so complicated!

I've been dreaming of getting an under-mount sink because it is so hard to clean the counter top around the lip of the drop in sink.

I am getting new kitchen counter-tops. I kind of know the current cabinets will need to be reinforced or completely redone??

So of course I find there are pros and cons to under-mount sinks. A post from 2017 the first reply was why they don't like under-mount sinks.

Anyway when, if, I do go with under-mount I would have it professionally installed. Have "things" opinions, ways to install, changed since 2017? Any suggestions, tips, on what to watch out for? What to ask the installer?

You are asking very vague questions. Mounting methods are determined by the type of sink and the type of countertop. This question needs to be discussed with your installer.

If you are asking opinions.... I personally like top mounted sinks. I don't find the top flange to be an issue.
