How close can your sink cut out be to the counter edge?

23 days ago

We are redoing our kitchen. We got quart and an undermount sink for rhe first time. Our installer suggested the counter edge to sink opening be 4". It was all installed last week and I find it too far in sadly. I find I have to bend forward so much more and my arms lean against the countertop while washing dishes. Additionally we have a bridge faucet and a 50/50 sink so I didn't even question where to place the faucet and now when the faucet is moved to one sink basin, the water flow only reaches about 1/4 into the sink. So its more leaning back.
Just wondering now out of curiosity if I could have made any of this better or if my installer made the right call.
