The bathroom sink and faucet are an important part of any well designed bathroom. The right bathroom sink can be both functional and fashionable. Listed below are the most common styles of bathroom sinks.
Types of Sinks
Self Rimming sinks
These sinks come in a large variety of sizes, shapes, and hole configurations. They are mounted from above the counter with a visible rim and can be used with all types of countertops.
Installed from underneath a solid surface counter top, such as granite, marble, stone or man-made material, such as Corian and does not have a “rim”. Counter mounted or wall mounted faucets are common with this design; therefore the number of holes for the faucet is not a factor in this sink application.
Pedestal sinks are freestanding sinks
These sinks sit on their own bases. These sinks are a great space saver, making them ideal for smaller bathrooms and powder rooms. When selecting a pedestal sink, be sure to consider the finish of the exposed plumbing items (drain and supply lines) underneath and match them to your faucet.
