Bathroom Sink Styles

 In Bathroom, blog

The bathroom is one of the most essential rooms in the house. It’s also one of the places where you can make upgrades and have a good return on investment. Bathrooms add a lot of value to the house, and maintaining a beautiful bathroom can be a great selling point. If you’re a novice when it comes to bathroom remodels, here’s a rundown of the different sink styles that are on the market.

Drop-In Sink

This style of sink is sometimes called a self-rimming sink. The hole for the sink is cut into the countertop, and the sink is dropped into the space. The sink has a rim that rests on top of the counter. Depending on the sink and the material, that rim may be either narrow or chunky. It’s readily available in a variety of materials and is very easy to install.

Undermount Sink

Unlike the drop-in sink, the undermount style of sink is installed underneath the counter. The result is a sleek, rimless style that looks great. However, this type of installation comes with its own set of complications. The countertop needs to be cut to fit the sink perfectly, and the weight of the sink can create installation delays.

Pedestal Sink

Perfect for small bathrooms, the pedestal sink stands by itself without a vanity, saving you valuable space. This style of sink comes in many different designs suitable for any small bathroom.

Vessel Sinks

Vessel sinks rest either directly on top of the counter or slightly recessed within. You can find this type of sink in a variety of materials and styles, and it creates a distinctive look that draws your attention.

Wall Hung Sink

This is another option that’s great for a small bath. This type of sink is mounted directly to the wall. It’s similar to a pedestal sink in that it saves a lot of much-needed floor space and requires no vanity or countertop.
