Be very clear with yourself about your needs. Do you need two sinks with potentially less counter space, or will one sink and lots of surface space work best for you? What about under-cabinet storage? If you don’t have a linen closet handy, your vanity may need to store both towels and extra shampoo. Towels take up lots of space while shampoo and other assorted toiletries may work best in drawers.
Also called a self-rimming sink, these have been the standard. It’s called drop-in due to the design. They are inserted into the cut-out from the top of a counter and hang from an overlapping rim. The reason for their being standard is sheer affordability. Plus, they are easily installed into any stock countertop. Typically, many counters tend to be standardized, allowing you to buy any drop-in sink despite depth, shape, or size.
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.
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.
