Finding the Right Kind of Sink For Your Bathroom

You can do a total overhaul of a room in your home by simply updating a few things. Bathrooms are a great example of this. Updating faucets and fixtures can make a huge difference and adding a little change to your decor can give your bathroom a whole new look. Most often you can find a one stop shop like Duftons Plumbing Supplies Brighouse that can supply you a variety of different products to help give your bathroom a much needed makeover.  Right now we are focusing our research on different types of sinks for our master bath.

Wall Mounted: These sinks are exactly what they sound like. They are mounted to the wall and are perfect for bathrooms that don't have a lot of space. These are great because you can utilize the space under them by putting in a cabinet, trash can, etc. You can also purchase decorative covers to hide the plumbing to make it look neat and tidy. This is a pretty inexpensive choice and very common in rental homes and apartments. 

Pedestal: If you are looking for a more Colonial look, a pedestal sink is mounted on the wall and rests on a pedestal. This is another great option if you are short on space but you will not be able to utilize the space underneath it like you could a traditional wall mounted sink. Pedestal sinks can give an elegant look to any bathroom and it's nice that the plumbing is concealed within the pedestal part. 

Drop Sink: This type of sink is securely placed into a cutout in the top of a cabinet.  This is a very common and inexpensive type of sink. 

Vessel Sink: This is a very unique style vanity that is becoming more popular in today's homes. These types of sinks can almost be looked at as a form of art. It features a sink that sits on top of a countertop that is attached to some kind of vanity.  Many of the sinks are a porcelain bowl or blown glass. 

Whatever kind of sink you choose, remember that this can be a pretty pricey investment so choose something you are going to love and want to keep for a long time. We have looked at sinks from $50-$5,000 so consider your space, budget and style when looking for a new bathroom sink. 


  1. We currently have the pedestal sink but we are thinking of replacing with a vessel sink. It's totally becoming a hit these days because of it's attractive and modern look. Anyway, this is a great source of reference about sinks.

  2. I am planning to remodel our bathroom. I am thinking of a vessel sink to make it look grand! -http://edenbath.com/

  3. I had Vessel but it wasn't suitable with my faucet. So I changed it.Faucets are more important than sink for me. Faucets must be more attractive. you can find more great information on http://www.fauceta.com/

  4. Vessel was not suitable for me before . I love my kitchen and always make different thing in it. Faucets are very important for me. last month I bought Delta faucet.This faucet is gorgeous and substantial. I couldn't have made a better choice for my kitchen. The stainless steel look goes well with my new stainless sinks. The sprayer is easy to use and sets back into the hole with little force because of the magnetic grip. It resists stains. I am impressed with this faucet. Easy to install as well. But be careful .We have different price types in the market. I got great reviews from http://www.faucetmag.com/

  5. . Much the same as the least expensive auto or the least expensive TV. Esteem is essential and the correct handyman will really spare you a large number of dollars despite the fact that he/she is not the least expensive. mcbplumbing.co.nz
