While this may seem a style choice, how your sink is installed can make a huge difference in how easy it is to keep the vanity clean. An undermount sink means that you can easily wipe down the counter surface with little impediment. Drop-in sinks require a little more work to keep them clean around their edges. Price may play a factor in this decision, as undermount sinks are usually more expensive.
Bathroom sink vanities are wide and they are deep. And they have swinging doors, as do bathrooms themselves. Unless you are replacing an existing vanity with the exact same size piece, make absolutely sure that the width and depth still work in the space, especially as they relate to the swing of the main door, closet doors and the vanity doors and drawers. Take into consideration the moldings around doorways and the amount of space needed around the toilet. Taller and wider people need more space in all directions. Finally, pay close attention to the plumbing that services the vanity, especially if the size is changing, or you are adding a new sink. A few inches' difference in either direction will turn a standard DIY installation project into a call to a licensed plumber.
There’s all sorts of materials used in the construction of modern bathroom sinks, each with their own unique advantages. Chrome, stainless steel, brass and copper are just some examples of materials that can deliver sophisticated designer style to a bathroom, with porcelain and glass arguably the two most popular contemporary options.
Once you determine the material you want the sink to be made out of, it’s time to determine exactly how you want the sink to be positioned in the bathroom. Space and design are important in this factor, as the size of the bathroom could mean you want more space for other things and less for the sink area. Counter to that, you could have a huge bathroom and want two sink areas. There are many different ways you can position the sink depending on the way your bathroom looks.
