Before updating your bathroom, there are numerous things you’ll have to think of other than your bathroom’s flooring or shower plans. This is especially true if you also plan to change your bathroom’s sink. There are numerous designs you can pick for your sink, and, since it’ll be there for a while, you’ll need to carefully think through your decision.
Undermount Sinks – Undermount sinks are the most popular sink installations. Since there is no rim, you can easily clean this type of sink. It also doesn’t take up too much space on the countertop. However, should you choose to install an undermount sink in your bathroom, keep in mind that once it’s there, it’s unlikely that it can be removed for a future remodel, closing the possibility of ever changing your sink style without major work.
Drop-in Sinks – The drop-in sink style is easy to install since the rim rests atop the counter’s surface. Due to this, iDIYers often gravitate toward this sink style. Drop-in sinks are available in a wide variety of materials, such as stainless steel, porcelain and granite, and can offer you a significant amount in savings.
Wall Mounted Sinks – The wall mounted sink is also another popular choice of bathroom sink style due to its clean appearance. They can offer you bathroom a modern and clutter-free look if the grout lines are perfectly aligned with the faucet. Wall mounted sinks are also very popular in commercial areas since they can be placed at any height and are great if you want to save space in a small bathroom as well. If
Vessel Sinks – While not as common as the other sink styles, vessel sinks are available in various designs such as frame square, barrel round, or even rectangular. They can also be made from a wide array of material such as stone, glass, porcelain, and copper to give the sink its own unique statement.
Pedestal Sinks – If you’re looking for elegance in your bathroom, then pedestal sinks are the way to go. Since they only feature an average bowl size with only enough space for hand soap and grooming essentials, this sink style is best placed in small bathrooms that do not need much storage space.
Console Tables – On the other hand, if you’d like a practical and attractive bathroom solution, a console table sink is also a good choice. They come with a rail for your towels and can give your bathroom a light and open feel, making your small bathroom feel bigger than it actually is.
