Among the different kinds of sinks include vessel, vanity, pedestal, and under-mount sinks. Vessel sinks are freestanding that are decorated and finished on all sides and suit large bathroom spaces and bathrooms with limited space for a countertop. Vanity sinks allow more space on the counter. Apart from additional storage space on top, it also allows storage under it and is commonly seen in modern bathrooms.
Like vessel sinks, pedestal sinks are also freestanding and have a column at the center to support the weight of the sink. Pedestal sinks work well for classic and modern bathrooms. It is also suitable for small bathrooms as it doesn’t take too much space. Undermount sinks, on the other hand, are sinks mounted under the counter surface of the bathroom vanity. This kind of sink suits both large and small bathroom spaces.
The kind of sink material also makes a huge difference. Wooden sinks are now relatively rare but were common during the early days and were made of teak, a tropical hardwood that is known for its natural waterproof properties. Enameled cast iron sinks are also popular due to their durability but the downside is these are heavy. Solid ceramic sinks offer the same benefits of cast iron sinks and are less likely to corrode due to surface damage.
Glass sinks and stone such as marble, granite, and onyx are trendy options but these are on the higher end of the price scale. For cheaper bathroom sinks, these are usually made of plastic using injection-molded thermoplastic or the more expensive acrylic.
