Glass sinks may not seem like a good idea, but innovation has made it where the glass is thicker and more durable. It can handle stains, scratches and shocks from things hitting it, which means it has a better durability and long-lasting time span as compared to thin glass. It’s a current trend that’s picking up.
There’s all sorts of materials used in the construction of modern bathroom sinks, each with their own unique advantages. Chrome, stainless steel, brass and copper are just some examples of materials that can deliver sophisticated designer style to a bathroom, with porcelain and glass arguably the two most popular contemporary options.
Copper sinks bring a classic, antique look to a bathroom, and they have a beautiful and distinctive texture. Copper also has a natural anti-bacterial quality. However, copper requires significant upkeep. It must be cleaned regularly, and it should be wiped dry after every use to avoid water spots and discoloration. Copper also changes color over time, so it is difficult to predict what the sink will look like in a few years.
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.
