Bathroom Sinks
Written by Elizabeth Wood

Bathroom sinks, or lavatories, offer the greatest opportunity for personal expression of all plumbing fixtures. There are two different types of bathroom sinks; pedestal sinks (sinks without cabinet) and sinks with cabinets. Cabinet sinks can be installed on top of countertops, propped into the counter or under mounted below the countertop.

Bathroom sinks can come in different types of material. Generally, sinks can be made from stone, marble, vitreous china, enameled cast iron, fireclay, glass, copper, and stainless steal. Special custom sinks are also available. The material you choose will depend greatly on the overall appearance you are looking for. In addition, bathroom sinks are available in an infinite range of colors, patterns, styles, designs, heights, depths, and widths.

Sinks are available in a variety of sizes and configurations. You can pick between a sink with one bowl or two bowls. They also come with deep or shallow bowls, straight or sloped sidewalls, offset drains, under-counter mounts, tile edging, or self-rimming. You can choose for your sink to be any color of the rainbow. In addition, they will fit a variety of faucet styles, but keep in mind that no sink will accommodate all faucets.
