8 Bathroom Sink Designs
By writer on September 26th, 2014 in Sinks
Bathroom sinks come in an array of styles and are an important part of the overall look and feel of the bathroom. There are so many beautiful bathroom sink designs to choose from these days. Knowing what kind of space you have available and what you look are going for will help you make the best choice for the washroom you are designing. In this post we will discuss 8 bathroom sink designs and what they are best suited for.
I am sure everyone has encountered one of these sinks before. Part of the basin sink family and also known as a drop in sinks, they are designed to be lowered into the countertop and usually have a lip around the edge of the sink where it is secured to the counter.
Another of the basin sink variety, these sinks are recognizable by the way the lip of the counter usually sticks out over the edge of the sink where the sink has been attached from underneath. This gives the counter a nice flat surface all the way across and is a nice look for granite countertops.
Semi Recessed Sinks
With semi recessed sinks, half the basin is above the countertop and is half below. This modern sink design is a hybrid between the vessel sink and the drop in or countertop sink.
These sinks are the most artistic sink designs in the entire lot. With a wide variety of materials and shapes to choose from, a vessel sink is showy and guaranteed to make a statement. The faucet for a sink like this is usually just as artistic as the sink and may be mounted on the wall or on the counter below. If you are looking to give your bathroom a modern edge, this is the sink for you.
Wall Mount Sinks
As the name alludes to, this type of sink is mounted to the wall. This kind of sink comes in a wide array of styles, shapes and sizes, and is a good option for a small bathroom where there isn’t room for a countertop or cabinet space below.
These sinks are essentially cousins to the wall mount sink and obviously, mounted on the wall in a corner. Ideal for a small-scale half baths with very little space, this sink will help give a tiny space more room to breathe.
Console sinks are essentially a wall mount sink with two to four legs made solely for decoration. These sinks tend to be larger and sometimes allow for a little bit more counter space than other wall mount sinks—at least enough to balance a hairbrush on. This look has the same advantages in space conservations as the wall mount sink.
It’s a sink on a pedestal. Essentially, this sink design is a wall mount sink with a decorative pedestal designed to hide the plumbing. These are beautiful sinks that usually complement a Victorian or vintage design. This style works well for small areas like a half bath, but doesn’t give you any counter or storage space. If you need to do hair and makeup in this room you are going to need to be coordinated if this is the sink you choose.
That covers all 8 bathroom sink designs for today.
