Double bowl This sink has two bowls, not necessarily the same size. Could be a 60/40 size split or even 80/20. Single bowl: As the term suggests, this sink has no separation so has only one drain.
Farm house Also known as an apron front, this sink is typically associated with a rustic or old-fashioned style interior, where the front of the sink is visible.
Top mount This is a self-rimming sink that sits on top of the counter. Typically used with a laminate or wood counter.
Undermount: This sink is mounted under the counter top so the rim is hidden. Typically used with a stone or solid surface counter top.
Single bowl As the term suggests, this sink has no separation so has only one drain.
Vessels This sink sits completely on top of, and above the counter. Bath or Lavatory sinks come in many different colors, shapes, and materials including: Stainless Steel, Accrylic, Enamel, Cast Iron, Swanstone, Copper, Fireclay, and Composite.
Important things to remember when buying or replacing sinks whether in the kitchen or in the bathroom:
Some of the currently popular types of sinks can be damage-prone: vitreous china, porcelain as well as fireclay, solid surfacing and enameled cast iron, all can be dented, dinged, or chipped. The tempered glass sinks can be shattered into small shards. Acrylic sinks don’t typically chip, but they can melt slightly if a hot curling iron or pot is left on them, while solid-surface sinks have a much harder time being burned.
If you’re just replacing the sink, your vanity and countertop may limit your choices, so note their width, length, and, if you’re considering a vessel sink, height. Updating all three? Then you’ve got more options. In the bath you can even add a second sink although some folks prefer more counter space over an extra sink.
Also keep these points in mind:
Master baths are the second most popular room to redo, after the kitchen. So this is where to treat yourself. Stick with a sink that can take wear and tear for a child’s or frequently used bathroom. For a guest bath or powder room, where storage isn’t as crucial and space is tight, a pedestal or wall-mount sink will work. The latter can be installed to any height, making it a good option for tall, short or disabled people. In the Kitchen you want to keep in mind the available counter space, the amount of work your kitchen sink will endure, and what types of material may suit you best. Always keep in mind the ease of cleaning or ware in tear your sink is going to be subject to.
You can use drop-in sinks, which fit in a hole in the counter; in the bath you can use vessel sinks, which sit on top of the counter, with any countertop material. Just be sure overall height of the vanity plus the vessel sink isn’t too high. Under-mount sinks either in the kitchen or the bath require waterproof countertop materials, such as stone or solid surfacing. Seamless installations, usually in the bath where the sink and the counter are made of the same material, have a nice clean look. But because they’re made as a unit, if the sink or counter is damaged, you’ll have to replace both.
There are a few facts that you should know before going out to choose new bathroom faucets. If you are going to simply replace the faucet itself and keep the sink, then most of the work is already done.
