Luckily, there are a number of styles of bathroom sinks. Porcelain-enameled, plastic, glass, ceramic—your options are moving towards the unlimited. If you're on a budget, redoing the sink is one of the simplest ways to upgrade the look of your bathroom. Naturally, you have to consider faucets in tandem with bathroom sinks in your remodeling plan.
Also called a self-rimming sink, these have been the standard. It’s called drop-in due to the design. They are inserted into the cut-out from the top of a counter and hang from an overlapping rim. The reason for their being standard is sheer affordability. Plus, they are easily installed into any stock countertop. Typically, many counters tend to be standardized, allowing you to buy any drop-in sink despite depth, shape, or size.
Ceramic sinks are like porcelain-enameled over cast iron, but without the porcelain over it. Having no overlaying means that it doesn’t deal with corrosion, as the ceramic is more akin to stone than it is to metal. So the surface will be more durable in the long run, but it can get scratches and crack with too much shock from being hit.
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.
