Selecting The Right Bathroom Sink

2009-1-8

Selecting a bathroom sink and counter top is an important part of remodeling or redecorating a bathroom.


When it is time to install a sink for the first time or to replace one that has seen better times, a number of things will need to be considered.


Are you replacing just the sink or the counter top as well?


Whether you are just replacing or selecting a sink by itself, or replacing the counter top and vanity will reflect on how many choices you have.


 If you are starting fresh, you have many options. You can choose to have your sink as an integral part of the counter top eliminating any cracks and crevices for dirt and grime to settle. With the sink as a part of the vanity counter top itself, no metal rim or grouting is needed.



When a bathroom stone sink is integrated in to the vanity top as one piece, the counter top material will be man made. Many of these materials are attractive, durable, and easy to clean and maintain.



If, on the other hand, the vanity and vanity top are in good condition and only the sink needs replacing, then selection is somewhat limited since you will have to work with what is already there.


 This includes choosing the size of the sink and how it is mounted to the vanity top. Bathroom sinks can be attached from underneath the vanity, or they can be set in and have a metal rim, or you could choose a rimless application where the lip of the sink overlaps the counter top. Each application has it's pros and cons.


 If your situation calls for replacing both the vanity and the sink, you may want to consider buying a vanity that allows the sink to be offset to one side or the other rather than centered.


 This allows more usable space inside the vanity, and may even leave room for some very handy drawers, or if you prefer shelves in the space not taken up by the underside of the sink.


Another option is a counter top sink or vessel sink that is mounted atop the vanity with it's underside completely exposed. These sinks can give a bathroom a very distinctive look and come in all sizes, shapes, materials and colors.


The faucets that accompany counter top sinks are either set into the counter top, or sometimes in the wall. Between the vessel sink itself, and the application of the faucet system your vanity area can have a very unique look.
