Types of Countertop Bathroom Sinks
Farmhouse & Apron
The farmhouse or apron sink is a unique option for your bathroom with deeper and wider basins that feature a “lip” over the front of the countertop.
Drop-in sinks feature a rim that rests on top of the vanity counter. Faucets can be installed directly along the back rim of the sink. During installation, these sinks are “dropped-in” to the vanity countertop.
Vessel sinks sit directly on top of the counter. Sometimes referred to as a “bowl sink,” vessel sinks come in varying shapes and sizes. With these types of sinks, faucets must be installed directly into the vanity countertop or in the adjacent wall.
Pedestal sinks are units that exist without a vanity. A simple sink, it features a basin bowl and pedestal which are sold separately or together as one unit. These sinks are usually best for guest bathrooms.
Ceramic is probably the most common sink material, because it’s sturdy and easy to clean. Made of a mix of clay and then infused together, ceramic sinks come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colours.
Glass sinks offer a sleeker and more modern look for your bathroom. Usually found in vessel sinks, they come in a variety of styles, like frosted, beveled, and mixed with stone. They come in multiple colours like blue, gold, or turquoise.
Stone sinks can give your bathroom vanity a unique look. Available in onyx, limestone, and more, stone sinks are found in vessel and undermount variations. When it comes to cleaning, they may require special care—be sure to check which cleaner works well for your sink.
A budget-friendly option, acrylic offers a lot of versatility. Available in almost all sink types, acrylic sinks are easy to install, have minimal upkeep, and come in lots of different designs, shapes, and colours.
More practical than other materials, stainless steel sinks are perfect for high-traffic bathrooms. When paired with the right vanity, stainless steel sinks can transform your bathroom into a modern space.
Go green with a bamboo bathroom sink! Made from the fast-growing plant, these sinks are totally unique—literally! No two bamboo sinks will look exactly alike. When cleaning, make sure not to use any metal wool pads and dry the basin afterwards to avoid water spots.
