What are the different types of bathroom sinks?
Vessel & Above Counter Sinks
A vessel sink is mounted above the counter and comes in a variety of materials, shapes, sizes, textures, and colors. Our vessel and above counter sinks feature designs, finishes, and decorative elements that impart a clean, modern look to your bathroom. Easy to install, these sinks add plenty of pizzazz to the bathroom décor. Mount a vessel sink on any countertop type, a shelf, or other non-conventional base in a bathroom or lavatory.
Undermount Bathroom Sinks
An undermount bathroom sink installs beneath the countertop; this type of sink is easier to clean since there is no lip above the counter to trap dirt and debris. The rimless construction of an undermount sink offers a sleek appearance that works well in most vanities. Find an undermount sink in an oval, square, or round design that complements your existing bathroom cabinet.
A pedestal sink boasts a slender silhouette that typically works well in a half bath or a smaller bathroom. Consisting of a basin set atop a pedestal or column base, this type of sink still packs a lot of style punch with its smaller-than-average footprint.
Drop-In Bathroom Sinks
The drop-in sink remains the standard style in most bathrooms. Its self-rimming design makes it easy to install in most types of countertops or bathroom vanities. We offer drop-in bathroom sinks in durable materials from copper to concrete that add beauty and utility to the washroom.
Wall-Mount Bathroom Sinks
A wall-mount bathroom sink does not rest on top of a vanity, cabinet, base, or stand, but instead mounts directly on a wall, making it an ideal space-saving solution for a small bathroom. A wall-mounted sink offers universal access for people with limited mobility since its barrier-free design allows room for a wheelchair.

Frequently Asked Questions
What shape bathroom sink is best?
The best shape for your bathroom sink is really a matter of personal preference. A rectangular sink offers a contemporary aesthetic and often comes with a larger basin than a traditional round or oval sink, which allows for more counter space. A vessel or above-counter sink in an unexpected silhouette—think leaf, shell, or bowl designs—makes a dramatic statement in the bathroom.
What bathroom sinks are in style?
Traditional undermount sinks are always in style thanks to the clean, sleek aesthetic they impart to a bathroom vanity or countertop.
What size bathroom sink do I need?
Bathroom sinks are available in a wide range of sizes to suit your needs. If you're replacing an existing sink or adding a sink to a vanity counter with a pre-cut hole, simply measure the space available and choose a sink to fit. A vessel sink should not extend beyond the edge of the counter or the vanity. A wall-mount or pedestal sink should clear the bathroom door, and a sink with legs should allow enough clearance for a person to move about freely in the bathroom.
What is the best material for a bathroom sink?
The best materials for a bathroom sink are durable and easy to clean—vitreous china, fireclay, and ceramic sinks are popular for these reasons. Sinks fabricated in brass, copper, and other metals are as durable but more difficult to clean; the tradeoff is the elevated style they impart to the bathroom. Concrete or glass vessel and above-counter sinks make likewise style-oriented options.
