Often providing decorative or ornamental appeal, console sinks are a great choice for traditional bathrooms. Of console options with a more contemporary aura, vessel sinks with table tops are a prime example; their unenclosed design is perfect for enhancing space in the bathroom.
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.
Bathroom sink vanities come in nearly all design styles and sizes, and the right selection will make or break the design and, more importantly, the functional workings of your bathroom. Technically, the vanity encompasses the cabinet, the sink and the mirror above; however, typically, the cabinet-sink combination is what we think of when talking about bathroom sink vanities. As always with remodeling projects, you should start with an assessment of your needs and the space available. Is the bathroom a small powder room or the main family bathroom? Do you and your significant other share the bathroom and regularly need to be using it at the same time, or are your schedules staggered? These questions will help you determine if you need a double sink vanity or if a single sink can do the job nicely.
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.
