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.
Plastic sinks come in several different forms. They can be thermoplastic, which means they’re low-cost but also easily broken when damaged by hot or sharp objects. Acrylic is another option, but they’re also easily damaged by hard objects. They can be made from the same material as solid surface countertops, which are durable and attractive. They can be damaged by hot objects but can be sanded down.
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.
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.
