In many bathroom remodels, the sink is the centerpiece of the overall bathroom design. If you are planning a bathroom remodel, perfecting the look of your bathroom may come down to choosing the right bathroom sink. The following are some bathroom remodel ideas that you can use to beautify your bathroom, starting with the sink.
The slimmest, lowest-profile bathroom sink option is the pedestal sink. Pedestal sinks can help maximize space in small bathrooms and powder rooms, but they offer little countertop space and no vanity for storage. This makes them less ideal for master bathrooms or guest bathrooms that get a lot of use.
Another sink option for bathroom remodels is a vessel sink, which features a bowl that sits on top of the vanity. A vessel sink doesn’t offer much usable counter space, but there is typically plenty of storage space inside the vanity. Many people pair a vessel sink with a piece of repurposed furniture for a unique, antique look.
Undermount sinks are bathroom sinks that are attached to the underside of the vanity countertop. This type of sink is suitable for natural stone or solid-surface countertops, like granite, marble, concrete or soapstone. Because of the way undermount sinks are installed, there is no rim between the sink and the countertop, which gives the sink a clean, continuous appearance.
Drop-in sinks, or self-rimming sinks, rest on top of the countertop and are the easiest type of bathroom sinks to install. Just as the name suggests, drop-in sinks are dropped into a pre-cut hole in the countertop. This type of sink works well with a wide variety of countertop materials.
In bathrooms with an integral sink, the countertop features a built-in sink made out of the same material. This makes the sink easy to clean and also creates a seamless, contemporary aesthetic. Integral sinks can also be customized to your exact specifications for material, shape, size and color.
The sink most homeowners choose for a bathroom remodel is the traditional single vanity. Offering adequate counter space on top of the vanity and abundant storage space down below, a vanity may be the best choice for your bathroom remodel. Because bathroom vanities come in a wide variety of sizes, materials and styles, including freestanding vanities, floating vanities and corner vanities, chances are good that you’ll find something you love.
If your bathroom is shared and you have the space, consider increasing your counter and storage space with a double vanity. Double vanities are becoming more and more popular for bathroom remodels, especially in master bathrooms and kids’ shared bathrooms. As an alternative to one long double sink vanity, some homeowners choose to install two matching single vanities for a more contemporary, custom look.
