Bathroom Sinks That Reflect Your Style
Gone are the days of purely utilitarian baths. With our new emphasis on creating a personal retreat, the bathroom offers more creative possibilities than any other room in the home. To make your bathroom a style statement, choose the décor style that best reflects your personality. Once you've chosen your décor, you can choose a bathroom sink that coordinates with your master plan.
Though undermount or drop-in (topmount) bathroom sinks remain the go-to standard. Drop-in sinks are self-rimming, making them easy to install and a design that works with practically any type of counter or vanity top. Undermount sinks are set beneath the countertop, making them easier to clean since they have no lip above the counter to trap dirt. They offer a sleeker appearance and work well in most vanities.
Vessel sinks are mounted above the counter and come in a wide variety of materials, shapes, sizes, textures, and colors. Many feature handcrafted designs, finishes, and decorative elements. Easy to install, these sink add plenty of pizazz to your bathroom décor and can be mounted on a wide range of countertop types, shelves, or non-traditional bases.
For smaller spaces, pedestal sinks are a smart choice. A basin top set atop a pedestal or column base, these sinks add a lot of style in a small footprint. These sinks are commonly found in half baths or smaller bathrooms. Unlike vanity sinks, pedestal sinks do not provide any place for storage so other options for stashing bathroom essentials must be used.
Similarly, wall-mounted sinks offer no storage underneath, but are ideal for small bathrooms and offer a sleek, sophisticated look. They also provide universal access for people with various levels of mobility since they are a barrier free design that allows room for wheelchair access.
