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.
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.
You’ll also want to consider its location. Vessel sinks are usually found in powder rooms and guest baths where they see lighter use, typically just hand-washing. That’s because this type of on-display design requires a bit more cleaning and maintenance than your average below-deck sink.
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.
