We are having our kitchen remodeled and purchased a 33x22 stainless Kohler double sink.

We have a standard laminant counter top (25") going in with a backsplash. The plumber has said that he will not install the sink as it is too big and we need to have a 21" sink to leave enough room for counter surface behind to the backsplash and in front and have enough room to attach the clips to hold the sink in place.

This does not seem correct, when we measure and look at other samples...while the showing counter top is small a 22" sink fits. Any suggestions or how to's to make this work?

On the top of the base cabinet, you may have to use a router or jigsaw to cut down the 1x's that were used for support and to prevent sagging of the C/T. Sometimes it's very difficult to install the clips on the front of the sink, and you really want at least 3 clips all around, so the sink is held firmly and makes a good seal.
