When you think of the different types of sinks and basins, what comes to mind? The first thing that comes to my mind is a pedestal sink. Yet I just got educated about the various types that are available. The one you likely see the most is called an under-mounted sink. It is one that is mounted underneath a countertop.
How many sinks do you have in your home? Are you just switching out one? Maybe you’re adding a sink, or maybe you’re looking at sinks and basins for a new construction. It is going to be fun selecting the sink that fits your needs. If you are outfitting an entire home, you’re going to be choosing a few different types.
If I were outfitting a bathroom, I would want to go with a pedestal sink. Yet there are reasons to go with other types, too. You can certainly pick what you think looks best in a space. And sometimes it’s not just about design. You want to be sure everything fits well in a room. Maybe you’re trying to save space.
Imagine gutting the bathroom and doing a redesign. A pedestal sink could possibly give you more room to move around. And whatever sink type you choose, you also have to select other features, too, such as the sink shape. Round, oval and rectangular are a few of your choices. And they are of course the most common.
What about sink materials? There is cast polymer, composite, copper and cast iron. That’s not all of course, as you often see stainless steel sinks in kitchens of course. Under-mounted sinks are especially common in kitchens, but there are different options for sure. A copper or cast iron sink sounds like a really cool option for a bathroom.
How about a copper pedestal sink? It really depends on what you see looking best in your space. Functionality is of course key, and you have your style preferences, too. Naturally, you have to take into account the costs as well.
What is your budget for this project? What sink and basin type, size, style and materials would fit your budget best? What would look best? I’m stuck on the copper pedestal sink. While a pedestal sink can be a cost saver, the copper would make it a bit pricey. Think about what you want when it comes to a new sink, and then you can start planning out the installation.
