China and fireclay ceramic are the standard for bathroom sinks. Basic ceramic sinks are non-porous, durable, germ-resistant and relatively inexpensive. They can be painted and patterned, and formed into any shape. Of course, heavy objects may chip ceramic sinks.
Bathroom sink vanities come in nearly all design styles and sizes, and the right selection will make or break the design and, more importantly, the functional workings of your bathroom. Technically, the vanity encompasses the cabinet, the sink and the mirror above; however, typically, the cabinet-sink combination is what we think of when talking about bathroom sink vanities. As always with remodeling projects, you should start with an assessment of your needs and the space available. Is the bathroom a small powder room or the main family bathroom? Do you and your significant other share the bathroom and regularly need to be using it at the same time, or are your schedules staggered? These questions will help you determine if you need a double sink vanity or if a single sink can do the job nicely.
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.
