Unlike standard bathroom sinks, vessel designs sit above the counter surface. Reminiscent of historical bedroom washstands that consisted of a wash basin and pitcher for freshening up, current vessel sinks utilize modern materials and designs to sculptural effect.
Modern bathroom sinks obviously match up nicely with contemporary surroundings. However, practicality should also be at the forefront of your thoughts when choosing your bathroom sink, especially considering that it is sure to be one of the most frequently used fixtures in your entire home. That doesn’t mean you need to compromise on looks–most modern bathroom sinks are designed using up-to-date technologies which ensure a durable, lightweight profile as well as appealing aesthetics.
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.
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.
