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.
An undermount sink presses up from the bottom of the countertop so it lays equal with the surface. They're often installed in stone countertops like granite. Plus, the faucets and handles are sunk from below as well, popping out of openings in the countertop.
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.
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.
