Similarly, stainless steel is a great option for the kitchen, but may be less attractive in a bathroom. Steel sinks can be noisy, although newer sinks may be undercoated with sound-deadening finishes.
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.
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.
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.
