Bathroom Remodeling: 3 Types of Sinks to Consider

Bathroom Remodeling: 3 Types of Sinks to Consider

For your next bathroom remodeling project, you have so many options for a new sink! Here we go into detail about three.

It’s exciting to undertake a bathroom remodeling project. However, it can provide a fair share of difficult choices for appliances. You want to pick something nice looking but practical for years of use. Today, we’ll help you narrow down your choice of a sink by diving into a few types you can expect to see while shopping around for your bathroom remodeling project.

Vessel Sinks

A vessel sink, also known as countertop sinks, is typically a bowl or basin that sits on top of the bathroom vanity or counter. These vessels can be rounded, squared, or other shapes, as well as be made out of different materials. Whether it’s glass, stone, or ceramic, most enjoy this style of sink in their bathroom remodeling project due to its modern appearance.


Despite being an enjoyable skin style to use and its elegant aesthetic, this sink does take up a sizable portion of the vanity space. Also, it requires plumbing that rises to meet the drain of the vessel, which would be at about countertop level. This extra bit of tricky plumbing is reason enough for hiring a professional for your bathroom remodeling needs.

Pedestal Sinks

Common in powder rooms and half bathrooms, pedestal sinks are stand-alone sinks that typically have a slim base and pillar connected to a wide basin. This compact base and narrow pillar translate into no cabinet space underneath the bowl. This can be a significant disadvantage for those looking to use bathroom remodeling to add storage space. However, homeowners have the freedom to add their own storage devices or new decor, like a potted plant. Storage space aside, the pedestal sinks often are very stylish in almost any bathroom design, with the added bonus that the narrow pillar covers the plumbing. This simple yet stylish sink design can add valuable return on your investment to your bathroom remodel.

Corner Sinks

While a bit uncommon in bathrooms, corner sinks can definitely have a place in not only small bathrooms but also in non-traditional designed spaces. The greatest advantage of this style of sink is its utility to be placed in a corner rather than requiring a width of wall space, which might be required or taken up for something else in smaller bathrooms. On the other hand, a disadvantage of implementing this style is the need to re-do the sink plumbing to accommodate a corner placement. This can be a turn off for those who are in the midst of bathroom remodeling for a straightforward sink upgrade and not major changes to your bathroom layout.
