There are a variety of sink styles to choose from, each with its own personality. You will be able to find one that suits your needs and also the size of your space. 

If a DIY bathroom renovation is something you’re looking to do in the near future, explore the luxury line of Cheviot products. A unique sink, no matter the style or size, can do wonders for your bathroom renovation.

While you may be used to the more commonplace under-mount or integrated bathroom sink, there are many different styles of sinks that you can choose from. For some tips on how to select the right sink for your bathroom, read on. 

Wall-Mounted Sinks

The wall-mounted sink was common in the 1940s and 50s and is perfect if you have a small bathroom. The sink and all the plumbing underneath are attached to the wall, leaving the space open underneath. If you like the exposed pipe look, a wall-mounted sink may be right for you. 

Not having a bulky vanity or cabinet underneath the sink can also give the illusion of more space. Since they don’t have a lot of counter space, they’re good for a guest bathroom or a half bath. Those types of bathrooms don’t require a large number of supplies to be stored. 

Wall-mounted sinks have been updated for modern design. They feature a variety of finishes, from stainless steel to gold. You can even find an option that fits in a corner if you have a small space to work with. These types of sinks add to the minimalist aesthetic if that’s something you’re going for in your bathroom. 

Console Sink

Console sinks are great when you’re lacking a lot of space in your bathroom but you need more storage and counter space than what a wall-mounted sink provides. They are mounted to the wall and have two or four legs underneath for added support. 

These classic sinks are often called an apothecary sink. There is open storage space underneath, often just a shelf for you to place woven baskets or totes. Console sinks provide extra counter space for you to put your toothbrushes or bars of soap. 

They come in a variety of finishes with the legs being made from porcelain, brushed nickel, and chrome. If you need space for two people, there are console sinks made from fireclay with dual sinks. While you may have to keep your toiletries neater with a console sink, you’ll love the openness it gives your bathroom. 

Pedestal Sink

Pedestal sinks save space while hiding all the messy plumbing. They mount to the wall, as well, just like the previous two options. If you need more counter space or storage, look into a medicine cabinet or shelving for your bathroom. 

These types of sinks are usually porcelain, but their hardware has been updated to match the modern decor. Faucets can be in a variety of finishes, such as brass, chrome, and stainless steel. A pedestal sink will add a touch of elegance to your bathroom while hiding all the pipes in the stand. 

Undermount Sink

If you share your bathroom with another person or several, an undermount sink is the way to go. These types of sinks sit underneath the countertop. They have a seamless and sleek design since there is no lip visible between the sink and countertop like you might find with a drop-in sink. 

Undermount sinks can be very elegant. They’re easy to clean since dust and grime won’t get stuck in that area between the sink and countertop. Explore choosing a countertop that is the same color as your sink so it will look like one unit.

If you want to create more drama, pair a white sink with a dark countertop. It will add contrast and a modern design. 

Vessel Sinks

Vessel sinks may have been something that you’ve only seen in fancy bathrooms or spas, but they are a classic design that mimics the washbasin from years past. They are extremely stylish and can make for a conversation piece in your bathroom with their high style.

They come in a variety of materials, such as porcelain, hammered copper, or brushed nickel. Paired with a unique faucet, a vessel sink will wow your guests when they use your bathroom. Like a wall-mounted sink, they are easy to install for a luxury bathroom renovation. 

Vessel sinks come in a variety of shapes. You can have a classic circular sink or one that is rectangular and geometric.

Choose a fireclay vessel sink that comes in four different colors. Its raised lip will help prevent water from flowing over the edge. The extra counter space will allow you more room for your toiletries.
