If you’re starting a bathroom remodel, get ready to make many design decisions. Even though the bathroom is one of the smallest rooms in your home, there are a lot of choices to make: which tub, shower, toilet, flooring, color scheme, lighting, even towels do you want? With so many choices, it can be easy to get overwhelmed. But don’t forget to spend some time picking out the right sink for your bathroom.
To help you get started on choosing a sink for your bathroom remodel, we’ve put together a simple guide:
• Top-mount sinks: The top-mount sink is set down into a pre-cut hole in the countertop, overlapping the counters when in place. Usually made out of porcelain, the top-mount sink can be used with nearly any kind of countertop product.
• Under-mount sinks: Under-mount sinks sit below the countertop surface, which keep the counter’s surface smooth without the lip of a sink. These types of sinks are used commonly now in new homes and are usually paired with granite counters.
• Vessel sinks: Vessel sinks are a great choice if you want to make a design statement in your bathroom. Resembling a large bowl that sits atop the countertop surface, vessel sinks come in a wide variety of styles and materials. Tempered glass, stainless steel, stone, and art glass are just a few of the attractive materials available. To add even more interest to your vessel sink, have a plumber install the faucet and handles to the wall above the sink.
• Pedestal sinks: The pedestal sink is a good choice for a small bathroom or half bath. Its floor- mounted base design gives a classic, sleek look. Since the pedestal sink offers very little sink-top space, no countertop space, and no cabinet storage underneath, opt for over-the-sink shelving, like a mirrored medicine cabinet, or a hallway linen closet.
