Bathroom Sinks

Today, most homes have moved on from the generic white bathroom sinks of the past; now, colourful glass vessel basins, handy farmhouse units and modern freestanding sinks are all the rage. As you look to remodel your bathroom, changing out that dated pedestal bathroom sink for a trendier copper or stainless steel model or a brand new vanity unit is one of the easiest ways to give your space a fresh look. Here are some tips to help you along the way:

Which bathroom sink is best in a small bathroom or cloakroom?


Floor space is limited, so freestanding bathroom sinks are ideal as they provide style and function without taking up too much room. A wall-mounted basin comes in a range of styles and materials, so try finding a trendy stainless steel, glass or tile unit for added character. A pedestal bathroom sink also takes up minimal space, but as with any small bathroom, storage will be an issue. Be sure to add wall cabinets or shelves, especially if you don't have enough room for a bathroom vanity unit.

Which bathroom sink is best for a large ensuite or family bathroom?


Your ensuite should be the most luxurious bathroom in the house, and a countertop bathroom sink is the best option for both aesthetic and storage. An undermount unit creates a clean, seamless look, and you have the chance to try out different countertop materials as well. If you have space, a double bathroom basin unit is even better! For the main family bathroom, try an utility or farmhouse bathroom sink; this type is often deeper and wider — it also often has two taps to assist larger families.

What are bathroom sinks made of?


Although ceramic bathroom sinks are the most popular choice, there are many other options, if you care to venture out. For something that ages well and adds rich colour, try copper or bronze. For a slick, modern look, opt for stainless steel, stone or coloured glass. And for an interesting, eclectic approach, try a bright tile bathroom basin instead. If you're wary of a new material, try a new shape instead. Round, oval, rectangular and square are common options, or you can go custom with a design of your own. Either way, be sure to consider your bathroom's overall style and have your bathroom sink complement that.
