Karran Sink and Formica Countertop

Getting my laundryroom together and making it stylish has really made me feel so good about that space now. What was once a dark and dreary storage/laundry room has now become a full fledged mudroom/laundryroom/storage area and the ugly has mostly been removed.  I can’t tell you how exciting that is!

I’m so fortunate to be able to work with some incredible companies during all my house renovations.  One company that I have recently worked with is Karran and they build integrated sinks along with Formica countertops.  In case you didn’t know this, you can now do undermount sinks and these integrated Karran sinks with laminate!  I know…amazing isn’t it?  I had no idea this could be done until just recently and wow, does it take laminate to a whole other level.

So, I wanted to show you all the details on the new sink and countertop in my laundry space.

laundry room sink

I ordered Calacatta Marble Formica laminate along with a Karran Nova sink.  It’s a white acrylic sink and these are molded together in the manufacturing process and then installed as one piece.

shelf over sink

We simply sat it on top of my new base cabinet and added liquid nails around the top of the cabinet to adhere the sink, which has a built-in backsplash.  I love it!

Karran sink

The Calacatta marble looks surprisingly real and the gray veins really enhance my gray cabinet that was stained and I showed that process earlier.  In case you haven’t looked at Formica and laminate lately, the new method of undermounting is SO cool!  I was blown away by that new feature and knew that it would be perfect for my laundry room choice.

This product is Calacatta Marble Formicaand there are several finishes to choose from, all gorgeous!

Nova sink

The sink is nice and deep and will come in handy for gardening projects, washing out paint brushes and many other mudroom chores, since this room has a door going out to my backyard.  A big huge thanks to Moen for sending me the new faucet, Anabelle in brushed stainless.  I have this same faucet in my kitchen in oil rubbed bronze.  I just love these gooseneck pull-down faucets and Anabelle has been a winner for me.  The built in soap dispenser puts it just where it’s needed and soap is always at the ready.

Calcutta Marble edge detail

Here you can see the Ogee edge detail I chose, one of the postformed edgesfrom Formica.  I could not be happier with my Formica countertop and Karran Nova sink.  I’m so thankful to be able to work with fabulous companies like this in my home to make it even better.

And hopefully you got some new inspiration on using laminate again.  It looks better than ever!

Disclosure:   I worked with Karran and Formica on my undermount sink and countertop and I’m so grateful for their support of my laundry room project with the donation of the countertop and sink.  I chose all the components for my countertop and sink and a local fabricator made it for me.  We picked it up and installed it ourselves.  Moen is also a wonderful sponsor of mine and has supplied all the faucets in my house.

  1. I love that you’re able to do the undermount sink with this Formica, Rhoda, and it looks just beautiful. You made great design choices, as usual! 🙂

  2. (Well, I see that it’s actually an “integrated” sink, not an undermount, but the effect is the same. You can sweep crumbs right in! Love it!)

  3. Hi Rhoda! I peeked in your laundry room during your open house about a year ago…and wow this is quite a transformation! Obviously I live in the same area and was wondering if you could supply me with the name of the fabricators you worked with. Not sure where to start on our kitchen countertop project. Thanks!

    • HI, Kelli, Thank you, I sure am loving my new laundry room now! I worked directly with the manufacturer on the sink and counters and I don’t think that fabricator is open to the public. You could try asking at Home Depot and Lowes, I think one of them carries Formica and hopefully they can give you some info on getting the Karran integrated sink too. Here’s the Karran website and I’m sure you could ask them too:


  4. LOVE that I found your post as I was searching for options for a downstairs bath/laundry room double sink. Can you tell me the depth of the sink ? Also, what are the general price ranges of the countertops?

    • Hi, Kristina, the sink is 10″ deep. I’m not sure of the price ranges, because mine came from a wholesaler. I would recommend looking at their website and find a distributor near you. The Formica countertop should be easy to find too. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I absolutely love the look! Do you think this would wear well in a kitchen? I’d need a slightly bigger sink, but I love the look. I just know that our sink and the nearby counters get really wet all the time and I wonder if the edges would start to warp or leak.

    • Julie, I don’t see why this wouldn’t work well in a kitchen. Formica makes a great product.

  6. Are you still happy with the sink and the way it undermounted with the laminate now that it’s been a couple of years?

    • Wendy, yes I still love this sink in my laundry & it’s a nice setup being undermount.

    • Thinking of doing something similar having just learned of the option and don’t know anyone personally who has gone this route. Thanks for responding.

  7. What finish did you go with. Not mentioned here. Thank you!

    • HI, Carrie, I’m not sure what you mean by finish. On the countertop? It’s just regular formica in the name mentioned.
