China and fireclay ceramic are the standard for bathroom sinks. Basic ceramic sinks are non-porous, durable, germ-resistant and relatively inexpensive. They can be painted and patterned, and formed into any shape. Of course, heavy objects may chip ceramic sinks.
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.
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.
