Sinks are the most used fixture in any bathroom. The average person visits the bathroom six to eight times a day, brushes their teeth twice a day, and washes their hands before and after meals. That adds up to a lot of time at a sink. In bathrooms used by more than one person at a time—family baths and master baths—double sinks streamline the process of getting ready for the day.
Vessel sinks are reminiscent of the wash basins of years gone by, but their technology is up-to-the-minute. They require surface or wall-mounted faucets like the ones shown here. To avoid excessive splashing, the faucet needs to be fairly high above the basin. This can be accomplished through careful placement on the wall or by using a goose-neck faucet.Seemingly floating on the counter, these glass sinks offer more than good looks and high style.
These undermount sinks are quite deep, which helps avoid splashing as they’re used. Undermount sinks fit below the countertop. As you see here, the edges of the countertop are exposed, so they have to be finished and watertight. Many undermount sinks are used with solid surface countertops like the one shown here. They also work well with stone countertops.
The original materials in Houzz user jons112’s guest bathroom certainly weren’t his style, but the wood subfloor underneath the outdated tile posed a much greater problem: years of water damage from damaged cast iron plumbing. He hired a contractor to completely gut the small bathroom and give him a blank slate. With a $9,000 budget, he turned the once-dingy yellow and brown tiled space into a classic and bright guest bathroom that still fits the style of his 1923 home.
What type of material are your sinks made out of? If you are lucky then they are probably ceramic. If you have a standard home then they are probably some type of metal or plastic. Imagine how much your rooms would change if you tore out those old sinks and installed ones that were made from glass instead.
Log – Take your bathroom back to nature with a wooden sink basin or vessel. Whether you have a found log custom-crafted into a sink, or a ready-made version from a store, make sure it has a polyurethane clear coat for durability. A substantial piece of wood like this can be very heavy — make sure it’s adequately supported on both the wall and floor.
