Pros & Cons of Popular Bathroom Sink Options

When remodeling your bathroom it’s important to choose the right sink, which will be a major focal point of your design. With that being said, there are many great options available.

Under-mount sinks are situated (or mounted, hence the name) below the countertop, allowing for easier cleanup, as there is no rim above the counter to collect everyday dust, dirt and bacteria. These sinks are generally a desired option due to their streamlined look.

Under-mount sinks are generally more expensive than their self-rimming counterparts. They are considered more decorative and may take a little longer to install; but they are well worth the money to complete your new bathroom design. It is generally recommended that under-mount sinks be paired with a solid and waterproof countertop option, such as granite or quartz.


Self-rimming sinks drop into the countertop and create rims along the top of the counter where they make contact. Unlike the under-mount sinks, self-rimming sinks can catch dirt along their edges during cleanup, but they are still fairly easy to keep clean with regular wipe downs.

Because these sinks drop right into the countertop opening, they’re genuinely easy to install and usually quite affordable. A self-rimming sink can be a suitable and economic option for someone who is remodeling their bathroom on a tighter budget – and they can be quite lovely.


Looking for a streamlined, seamless look in your bathroom? Then, you may want to consider integral sinks, which are made from the same material as the countertop, providing a continuous look with no interruption in the design.

Integral sinks are considered the lowest maintenance. When it comes to quartz countertops with integral sinks they may be a bit more costly, while cultured marble and acrylic solid surface countertops with integral sinks can be rather affordable, and offer an endless choice of configurations of countertop, color, bowl shape and edge options.


Although you may not recognize the name of these sinks, you’ve likely noticed vessels before due to their striking and elegant design. Vessel sinks typically sit right on top of the vanity countertop (although, they can also be recessed into the countertop partway for more stability) and usually resemble a large bowl.

Because the basin takes up a smaller surface area, their owners will gain more countertop space. Other pros that come with this type of sink are the wide range of material options – from glass to stone – and the varying price tag (nowadays, they have become extremely affordable, depending on the material you choose).

Pedestal & Wall-Mount

Both pedestal and wall mount bathroom sinks feature a bowl (usually made from vitreous china) that is positioned at a comfortable standing height. On a pedestal sink, the bowl rests on a decorative base designed to conceal the drain and supply lines. On wall mount sinks, the drain and supply lines are typically exposed, though some have a matching shroud to help conceal the plumbing. Wall mount sinks provide barrier free access.

Both pedestal sinks and wall mount sinks are available in styles ranging from traditional to contemporary, and range from small to large.

The smaller units are perfect for bathrooms that won’t fit a vanity because their slim profile takes up little to no floor space.

If you are planning to use a pedestal or wall-mount sink, you should consider your storage needs since these styles provide little or no counter space, and no storage at all below the sink.

No matter what style you choose, you can find a great sink option in almost every price range and decorative style. Review your options carefully so you can choose the sink that is best for your bathroom.
