Bathroom Vanity Sink? Consider This

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

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

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 or clipped/sealed to the underside of the countertop material. The countertop must be a solid surface material such as granite.

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 separate countertop) and very practical, being easy to clean. However, some might say they lack 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. This type of sink can make a design statement in the powder room. But be mindful of storage.

Vessel Sinks

We include an example of the vessel sink here for the sake of completeness and for illustration. But we recommend against them. They are faddy, impractical, and vulnerable to accidental damage. Think of a large, clumsy guest stumbling around the tight quarters of a powder room.

  • They are hard to clean around.
  • They don’t have an overflow drain
  • They need an expensive standalone faucet. 
  • They are difficult for short people to use.
