While this may seem a style choice, how your sink is installed can make a huge difference in how easy it is to keep the vanity clean. An undermount sink means that you can easily wipe down the counter surface with little impediment. Drop-in sinks require a little more work to keep them clean around their edges. Price may play a factor in this decision, as undermount sinks are usually more expensive.
An undermount sink presses up from the bottom of the countertop so it lays equal with the surface. They're often installed in stone countertops like granite. Plus, the faucets and handles are sunk from below as well, popping out of openings in the countertop.
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.
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.
