Whether you are in the middle of a full bathroom renovation or just want to upgrade your sink, WalterWorks Hardware is here for you. While most people think there are only two different sink designs like pedestal and self-rimming sinks, there are actually many different bathroom sink designs for you to choose from. Let’s take a look at some different sink designs.
The pedestal sink is one of the most common bathroom sinks available. This sink has a stand-alone style that takes up very little floor space. Unlike other sinks, this sink is not installed into a vanity. Often made of ceramic china glazed inside and out, it is composed of a wide sink resting on a floor standing ceramic column. Pedestal sinks are often used in small bathrooms where storage isn’t a priority.
A self-rimming sink, also known as a drop-in sink, is one of the easiest to install and can be fitted to an existing counter. In order for this sink to be properly installed, the sink itself must sit on top of the counter in order for it to support the weight of the bowl. This is the most popular styles and can easily be placed into an existing bathroom cabinet.
Undermount sinks are installed below a solid countertop. This sink maximizes the counter space available and is easy to clean. Undermount sinks will give you the clean, modern look many homeowners are looking for in their bathroom.
Vessel sinks are typically bowl-shaped sinks that sit on top of the counter’s surface. Unlike other sinks, they do not require installation under the countertop. These sinks are typically higher than other sinks and are a bolder design choice. Vessel sinks require a pop-up drain in order to function properly.
Wall-mounted sinks are perfect for bathrooms with minimal floor space. This sink is supported by the wall and does not require a base or legs. It can be installed at different heights so they can be accessible for children and adults.
Console sinks are a cross between a wall-mounted and pedestal sink. These sinks have an exposed base but offer a less bulky option for smaller spaces. These sinks typically have two to four legs and act as both a basin and a counter top. For extra storage, you can install shelves below the sink. Console sinks are compacts and perfect for smaller bathrooms that need a storage option.
When deciding on a bathroom sink, there are some things you should keep in mind: overall look, size, and space. Once you have measured and know how much space you can space, head to WalterWorks Hardware’s Annapolis showroom to choose your bathroom sink today!
