What Type of Bathroom Sink is Best For Your Remodel?

If you have decided to remodel any of the bathrooms in your home one of the main things you will want to consider is what type of bathroom sink will work and look best. The answer to this question can vary significantly depending on the bathroom you are remodeling. If you only have one bathroom in your home you may choose something very different than if this was a guest bathroom or powder room.

The type or design of the sink you choose can have a big impact on the look and feel of your bathroom. After all the sink area is a focal point in this important room. In fact you can make your bathroom look like a new room with just a new sink or vanity and a fresh coat of paint if you are looking for an easy way to provide a fresh look.


The first thing you need to consider when buying a new sink for your bathroom is what will be functional for this room. I know this isn’t the most fun thing to consider but on a day to day basis you will be glad you gave this enough thought.

If you live in a small condo with only one small bathroom you will want a vanity sink with a little counter space and room for storage. Not having enough room for storage of basic items can make life more inconvenient than it needs to be. But if you are remodeling a powder room you may not need the storage space and you may prefer the look of a pedestal sink.


Once you decide what basic functions you need from your sink it is time for the fun part, deciding what look you want. There are so many styles to choose from you shouldn’t have any problem finding just the right look.

Bathroom pedestal sinks offer a clean, simple look. Vessel sinks offer a distinct look that works well in a contemporary style room. A copper bathroom sink will offer a unique experience and topic of conversation for your guests. While undermount sinks provide a counter space with a clean look.


Unfortunately your budget may also have a say in the exact bathroom sink you choose. Something that is too specialized may come with a price tag that is too high. But there are a lot of great options in the affordable range. You can even find discounted bathroom sinks at home improvement stores, online or at auctions. If you are qualified to install the unit yourself you can save even more money.
