Since vessel sinks are top-mounted, you’ll have to adjust your counter height to accommodate for the vessel’s depth. Since standard sink rim height is 34″ high, subtract your vessel’s depth from 34″ to figure out the ideal countertop height. You might try retrofitting a vessel sink to an existing console or dresser under 30” high to achieve an ergonomic sink height.
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.
The faucet pairing and placement requires forethought as well. A wall-mounted faucet is common, but a carefully selected deck-mount faucet will also do the job. Like with other projects, site measurements and product dimensions are majorly important. Keep in mind that the faucet must be long and tall enough to reach the basin. Also be sure to position the faucet so that the nozzle sits directly over the drain to avoid bothersome splashing.
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.
