Most cast iron sinks are basically damage-proof, and they are a great high-end option for the kitchen. However, they are heavy and difficult to install, and their industrial look may clash with your bathroom.
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.
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.
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.
