    Hi,
    Ive been looking at kitchen base units, this may sound like a stupid question but, can you fit a sink on top of any base unit or do you need a strength-end base unit?

    thanks

    No, does not require to be strengthened. Any unit provided it accommodates the bowl and pipework.

    Just another comment, Keep away from the mitre joint with a sink if near the corner. Also, some manufacturers offer a metal drip type tray for the sink based units, encase there is a leak - the tray stops the carcass being spoiled.
