5 Popular Bathroom Sink Styles April 10, 2019

5 Popular Bathroom Sink Styles , ,

Of all the plumbing fixtures within the bathroom, the sink is a feature that stands out. While sinks may seem straightforward, homeowners actually have a lot of creative leeway when it comes to updating this aspect of their bathroom. In fact, there are many available sink styles to choose from; discover some of the most popular options below.

Bathroom Sink Options to Consider

1. Wall-Mounted Sink

Wall-mounted sinks are modern and space-saving. As their name suggests, these plumbing fixtures are attached directly to the wall, leaving the pipes exposed. For small bathrooms or half-baths, it may be ideal to forego a vanity or countertop altogether, leaving more room for navigation and open floor space.

2. Washplane Sink

Like the previous option, washplane sinks are also mounted to the wall but are even more minimalistic in design. Resembling a horizontal shelf or slab, they feature a gentle slope to facilitate drainage. This style is especially well-suited for sleek, modern bathrooms and is available in materials such as ceramic, granite, and marble.

3. Pedestal Sink

4. All-In-One Countertop & Sink

This convenient style integrates the plumbing fixture directly into the bathroom countertop, under which a vanity is constructed. As one of the most popular sink styles available, the setup is widely preferred for master and full baths as it provides storage space and hides pipes. Moreover, because the sink surface is so minimal, it’s exceptionally easy to clean.

5. Vessel Sink

Often chosen for its unique aesthetic impact, vessel sinks are basins that sit atop a surface, such as a countertop. Although they take up more space, they can make a stunning visual impression and are available in a broad range of materials and shapes, including ovals and rectangles.
