The bathroom sink is a much used fixture in the home, or at least should be. Replacing your sink can be an overwhelming process when attempting to make a decision between the different sink choices. We would like to reduce that stress by providing some helpful advice when it comes to purchasing a new bathroom sink.

Mounting

There are at least three basic varieties to choose from: traditional drop-in, undermount, and above counter vessel sinks. Drop-in sinks work with most vanities and do a good job of keeping water in the sink and not leaking into the vanity. Undermount sinks have the advantage of increasing counter space, yet require extra care when installing to ensure it is properly sealed to avoid leaking between the sink top and the counter. They also require more hardware to ensure the basin stays in place. Above counter vessel sinks are great if you want to repurpose another piece of furniture as a bathroom vanity as the unit simply sits on top and requires only that a hole be created to fit the drain, and a faucet if you choose not to install it to the wall directly.

Material

Sinks can range from traditional ceramic and composite materials on the cheaper end to stone and copper on the more expensive end. Ceramic's smooth surface is generally pretty easy to clean, while copper requires additional work and maintenance but with more vibrance and color. The material you choose should match your tolerance for upkeep and work well with the design of your bathroom. Don't get in over your head with a material that will require more work than you are ready to handle.

Plumbing/Installation

Keep in mind that while most sinks will show a faucet and drain kit with the model, they rarely come included. You will need to purchase a coordinating faucet and drain kit separately, so be sure to take into account necessary heights and widths as you search for the perfect bathroom faucet.
