Bathroom Vanity Sinks | Things to Consider for Your Remodel

Best bathroom sinks for your remodel

Below are some things to consider in selecting bathroom vanity sinks for your remodel.

Choosing a bathroom vanity sink depends on the bathroom remodel you have in mind. Typically, this would be a master bathroom, guest bathroom, or powder room.  

Our site has a focus on the accessibility required by aging in place and Universal Design and we point this out in our discussion here.

And at the end of this piece there are links to more detailed posts giving the big picture.

Main Types of Bathroom Sinks

Drop-in or top mount bathroom sink

The drop-in sink sits with its rim on top of the counter and its body recessed (dropped) into the body of the counter. These are suited to most countertop materials and are less expensive to install than the undermount sink.

Undermount bathroom sink

The undermount sink is installed underneath the counter with its rim glued to the underside of the countertop material, which needs to be a solid surface material such as granite.

Vessel bathroom sink

The vessel sink is totally exposed on top of the counter or just partially recessed. It makes a stylish statement and is great for powder rooms but (in our opinion) is impractical for frequent use.

Integrated bathroom sink

The integrated sink is molded into and is part of the countertop itself. It is relatively inexpensive (you don’t need a separates countertop) and very practical, albeit somewhat lacking in style.

Wall-mounted bathroom sink

The wall-mounted or cantilevered sink has no cabinetry below it and the plumbing is exposed unless special measures are taken to conceal it. It is very practical from an accessibility point of view as a wheelchair can approach it closely.

Pedestal bathroom sink

The pedestal sink is mounted against the wall with no cabinetry associated with it but with its plumbing concealed within the pedestal itself. This too is a great choice for accessibility.

Sink on a floating vanity

A stylish accessibility solution is to have a sink installed on a floating or cantilevered vanity. This provides ease of access plus some storage.
