Different Types of Bathroom Sinks

Choose a Sink That Best Suits Your Bathroom with Help from Build A Bath & Kitchen

There are several types of bathroom sinks available for installation, but choosing the right one can be tricky. Size, shape, design, and style all need to be taken into account before making a decision. 

Trough Sinks

Trough bathroom sinks are similar to a drop-in/self-rimming sink but the basin is deeper and wider like a trough at a farm. For larger bathrooms, opting for a two-faucet trough sink is excellent for households where sharing a bathroom space is necessary. Trough sinks are highly versatile in their layouts and can be used as undermount sinks, wall mount sinks, drop-in sinks, console sinks, and vessel sinks.

Undermount Sinks

Undermount sinks are installed under the countertop. For those looking for ample counter space, an undermount sink is the right choice. Another perk of having an undermount sink is that they are easier to clean.

Vessel Sinks

Vessel sinks are shaped like bowls and rest on the countertop. Vessel sinks provide a contemporary spin on traditional sinks which makes your bathroom look more modern – no matter how old the house is. 

Drop-In or Self-Rimming Sinks

Drop-in or self-rimming bathroom sinks are installed on top of the countertop with the edges visible but the basin sits under the countertop like an undermount sink. This is a very understated look that adds a clean, modern look to any bathroom. 

Wall-Mounted Sinks 

Small bathrooms can benefit from wall-mounted sinks thanks to their floorspace-saving design. The downside is that there is very limited countertop storage space. For those that prefer the look of exposed plumbing, a wall-mounted sink has the aesthetic you’re looking for. 

Corner Sinks 

Also a great choice for smaller bathrooms, corner sinks are conveniently tucked away and are available in a variety of styles. To amplify storage space, choose a corner sink with built-in shelves or drawers.

Console Sinks

Just like wall-mounted sinks, console sinks have exposed plumbing for an industrial appeal but the main difference is that the sinks have legs. If space in your bathroom runs on the more conservative side, you can add in a shelf or a towel rack for extra storage capacity.

Pedestal Sinks

The classic pedestal sink is ideal for powder rooms thanks to its smaller stature. Pedestal sinks and their stands are made of the same material for a uniform look.
