One of the central parts of the bathroom is the sink. It often sets the style of the room, so it’s necessary to choose it properly. Once you start to look for an appropriate option, you find yourself literally drowned in variety of products. Someone pays more attention to the design of sink and faucet, while others prefer useful models with loads of features. Anyway, process of choosing the best option becomes long and complicated. In order to avoid such difficulties, you should identify the kind of a sink you need.
There’re some basic things you should pay attention to. These are: amount of space in a bathroom, whether you have a family and kids, whether it’s a guest bath. In case you have a small bathroom, there’s no sense in purchasing a large sink – it will make the bathroom look ridiculously.
Next, it’s time to get familiar with all these sophisticated types of bathroom sinks. These are: pedestal, wall-mount, undercounter, above counter (or vessel), countertop, integral countertop, semi-countertop and corner. Each type has its own specific characteristics and features.
Let’s start with pedestal sinks. These sinks vary in style and shape and are perfect for small bathrooms, for example, for guest baths or powder rooms. This type of sink and faucet is usually sophisticated, so that curve lines may enlarge the room visually. However, pedestal sinks are not equipped with a large storage.
Wall-mount sink is a great choice in case you like modern design. This sink will be hung on the wall. Particularly these sinks gain popularity, as there are more and more different designs available.
Undercounter sinks are elegant and modern. This type is not equipped with a rim, so there’s no debris. As you understand, no rim – no dirt, no dirt – no problems with cleaning sink and faucet. Also, the counter space is free, so that you can use it as you wish.
Above counter or vessel sinks sit above a counter or a cabinet. They attract attention and define style of the bathroom. This type of sink is perfect for a modern guest or master bathroom, especially if the whole house is in a contemporary style. This specific sink requires a little bit of consideration. You should take into account that if you are going to purchase an above counter sink, you need a counter or a cabinet to be a bit lower than usually. Indeed, faucet is important, too. There are special tall vessel faucets that fit this sink as well as wall-mounted faucets.
Countertop sinks are self-rimming and therefore very useful. This is a perfect type for a family bathroom, as it’s affordable, easy to install and remove and simply designed.
Integral countertop sink is a seamless combination of a countertop and a sink. It’s easy to keep this sink clean.
Semi-countertop sink is a great way to use space efficiently, so it’s a good choice for small bathrooms. This sink usually has a large basin without using floor space.
Finally, corner sinks are perfect for bathrooms with empty corners. Such sinks can be pedestal or wall-mount.
