Bathroom sink vanities are wide and they are deep. And they have swinging doors, as do bathrooms themselves. Unless you are replacing an existing vanity with the exact same size piece, make absolutely sure that the width and depth still work in the space, especially as they relate to the swing of the main door, closet doors and the vanity doors and drawers. Take into consideration the moldings around doorways and the amount of space needed around the toilet. Taller and wider people need more space in all directions. Finally, pay close attention to the plumbing that services the vanity, especially if the size is changing, or you are adding a new sink. A few inches' difference in either direction will turn a standard DIY installation project into a call to a licensed plumber.
Ceramic sinks are like porcelain-enameled over cast iron, but without the porcelain over it. Having no overlaying means that it doesn’t deal with corrosion, as the ceramic is more akin to stone than it is to metal. So the surface will be more durable in the long run, but it can get scratches and crack with too much shock from being hit.
Unlike standard bathroom sinks, vessel designs sit above the counter surface. Reminiscent of historical bedroom washstands that consisted of a wash basin and pitcher for freshening up, current vessel sinks utilize modern materials and designs to sculptural effect.
The title of these sinks explains their design, and you can place them at a level appropriate for your needs. With a prominent space saving element, wall mounted sinks are ideal for small bathrooms or en-suites.
