Before settling on an undermount bathroom sink, keep in mind that they can be difficult to install. If you are replacing the whole vanity or countertop, consider a one-piece unit that already has the sink attached. Choosing from the variety of colors and shapes is obviously a matter of personal preference. However, there are some important considerations when choosing between various materials.
For instance, a clear glass sink will show watermarks or dirt, so you’ll want to wipe clean frequently. A copper sink’s living finish will develop natural patina and is therefore less fussy, so that may be a better choice in a frequently used master or main bath. Whatever material you choose, make sure the sink base doesn’t have tight angles; you’ll want a base that’s easy to clean around. As with most fixtures, use non-abrasive cleaners to keep your sink in top form.
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.
Glass is trendy, but it may be impractical for some homeowners. Glass needs to be wiped down after every use to avoid ugly water spots. Like ceramic, glass will not rust or stain. Be sure to pay extra for tempered glass, unless you plan to put a fragile, non-tempered sink in a sparsely used bathroom. Also keep in mind that even tempered glass can chip relatively easily.
