The bathroom sink is an essential component to the functionality of the room. All bathroom sinks and faucets serve the same function of bringing water into and removing from the space. However, a perfectly paired sink and faucet can be the perfect accent to any bathroom design.
Bathroom Sink Sizes
Bathroom sinks come in a variety of different sizes. In a compact bathroom, powder room or half bath, the size of the room may dictate which type of sinks will fit into the space. In larger bathrooms vanities may be more appropriate in order to fill the space.
Sink Installation Type
Top Mount sinks “drop in” to an existing hole in the countertop or vanity top. These are typically easiest to install and can be installed with any type of countertop.
Undermount sinks are mounted to the bottom of the countertop. They are frequently installed with granite, stone, quartz and similar vanity or countertops.
Are sinks that are part of the countertop itself. Usually part of a top specifically made to fit a vanity. These minimalistic sinks allow for maximum levels of clean as there is no seam between the countertop and the sink.
Sit on top of the countertop (above counter) or slightly below and slightly above the countertop. Vessel sinks come in a wide variety of materials.
Wall Hung Sink
Installed directly to the wall & save floor space. No storage and exposed plumbing
Console Table Sinks
Wall mounted sinks that sit on 2 or 4 legs for support. Plumbing is exposed but some storage can be offered via a towel bar or shelf on the bottom
