Copper sinks bring a classic, antique look to a bathroom, and they have a beautiful and distinctive texture. Copper also has a natural anti-bacterial quality. However, copper requires significant upkeep. It must be cleaned regularly, and it should be wiped dry after every use to avoid water spots and discoloration. Copper also changes color over time, so it is difficult to predict what the sink will look like in a few years.
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.
Whether you’re looking for a sleekly modern or country cottage look, or possibly something in between - finding a style you like is actually the easy part. It’s all too easy to get swayed by the looks of a piece and forget about the function. But without the proper functional aspects, a pretty piece of furniture will lose its appeal very quickly. Just remember your checklist for bathroom sink vanities: size including height, storage needs, sink configuration, and then style
For instance, a clear glass sink will show watermarks or dirt, so you’ll want to wipe clean frequently. A copper sink’s living finish will develop natural patina and is therefore less fussy, so that may be a better choice in a frequently used master or main bath. Whatever material you choose, make sure the sink base doesn’t have tight angles; you’ll want a base that’s easy to clean around. As with most fixtures, use non-abrasive cleaners to keep your sink in top form.
