A vessel sink is one of many luxurious bathroom sinks you can choose for your home.

Sinks are a critical piece of any home, especially in the bathroom. When you’re remodeling your space, there are various sizes, colors, and types of bathroom sinks to choose from. So what are the pros and cons of the different sink types, and how can you decide which one is right for you? 

Wall-Mounted Sinks 

These bathroom sinks are sleek and perfect for a small bathroom or powder room. All of the hardware is firmly secured to the wall, meaning you have more space beneath it for storage. You also have more flexibility with its mounting height, so this type of sink can be great if you have growing children. 

Self-Rimming Sinks

Also called drop-in, these bathroom sinks are very easy to install. They’re fantastic if your bathroom has an existing vanity that you’re looking to spruce up. Because of the short install time, these are among the most popular sink types for homeowners. 

Undermount Sinks

Undermount bathroom sinks are designed to sit just below a countertop. If your bathroom has limited counter space, this type of sink should be on your list of candidates! Not only do they look sleek and polished, but they are also easy to clean. 

Vessel Sinks 

Vessel, or countertop bathroom sinks, are gorgeous and excellent for modern homes or anyone who likes a modern, clean aesthetic. They can be made of marble, stone, glass, or crystal and have a deep, round basin. 

Pedestal Sinks 

Pedestal sinks are stand alone sinks, typically found in powder rooms. Their long base is mounted on the floor and hides a lot of the mounting hardware to make a classic, polished aesthetic. They are great for small spaces and can also make excellent additions to large bathrooms with separate vanities and storage space
