Whether you're giving the powder room a refresh or overhauling your master bath, the right bathroom sink can transform your loo from a dated room (that makes you cringe every time guests visit) to a space you'll want to show off. A well-chosen sink is an important purchase—and often the focal point of the bathroom—that lays the groundwork for the room's design before you can move on to selecting fixtures and accessories.
However, that doesn't mean you have to break the bank to get one that suits your space: These days, you can get an attractive, on-trend bathroom sink for $100 or less. Read of for our recommendations, plus our best pre-shopping advice.
Unless you're completely renovating your bathroom, existing plumbing and space constraints are the main considerations when shopping for a bathroom sinks. Generally speaking, there are five primary sink styles: undermount, drop-in or top-mount, vessel, pedestal, and wall-mount. Drop-in or top-mount sinks, which literally drop into a countertop cutout and are supported by a lip around the edge, are the easiest to install. Vessel sinks—perhaps the trendiest style right now—which are set on a countertop, are also similarly simple to install. Undermount sinks mount from below, so there's no lip, and are the way to go for a streamlined countertop. Pedestal and wall-mount sinks are excellent space-savers—ideal for keeping small bathrooms from looking cluttered—though they don't have storage space underneath.
In terms of materials, most bathroom sinks are ceramic or porcelain, and those with the term “vitreous china” attached are glazed with a layer of glass enamel for extra durability. Tempered glass is commonly used for circular vessel sinks, with everything from clear to colorful patterns available.
Beyond those considerations, your decision boils down to basin shape, along with the number of faucet-mount holes your setup requires.
