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.
Porcelain-enameled over cast iron is used in bathroom sinks often because it’s heavy and durable. It can be made in a wide variety of shapes of colors and is resistant to hot or cold objects. The problem is that once it’s damaged by sharp impact and the porcelain surface is breached, the cast iron will corrode.
These sinks are growing in popularity regardless of bathroom size. They give greater flexibility to position the sink at whatever height you find most comfortable. The disadvantage of a wall-hung sink is the piping’s visibility. However, it will allow you extra wall surface for installation and ensure the room has necessary room for easier navigation.
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.
