China and fireclay ceramic are the standard for bathroom sinks. Basic ceramic sinks are non-porous, durable, germ-resistant and relatively inexpensive. They can be painted and patterned, and formed into any shape. Of course, heavy objects may chip ceramic sinks.
Porcelain-enameled over cast iron is used in bathroom sinks often because it’s heavy and durable. It can be made in a wide variety of shapes of colors and is resistant to hot or cold objects. The problem is that once it’s damaged by sharp impact and the porcelain surface is breached, the cast iron will corrode.
Granite, soapstone and other stones can be carved into an undermount bathroom sink. They can be porous, and may trap germs and stains. Composite undermount bathroom sinks are rare, but they are available. They are typically less porous and can be formed into a wider variety of shapes. Most are made of quartz, granite or other stone mixed with acrylic binders. Like cast iron, stone sinks are heavy and expensive, and may be costly and complicated to install.
Vanity sinks provide the luxury of added closed storage space, supplied as an essential completing detail of a full unit. These sinks are embedded into a counter top as standard.
