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.
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.
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.
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.
