One of the most versatile modern sink options, pedestal sinks are available in a huge variety of different styles and sizes. Perhaps most ideally suited to classic themed bathrooms, pedestal sinks typically measure between 34 and 36 inches in height, but can be attached to a custom platform for extra scope if necessary.
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.
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.
