Why Should You Always Choose a Proper Sink for Your Bathroom

by Elias Deukmajian | Bathrooms

Picking out a new sink can make or break the design and functionality of your bathroom. A well-designed sink can transform the feel of a once-dull bathroom into a vibrant space that you won’t mind spending time in. Because there are such a wide range of choices on the market, it’s crucial to consider all your options and make the right decision.

Choosing the Right Material

Making sure your sink is made of a material that is ideal for your style, living conditions, and price range is important. Typically, average sinks are made of white porcelain, and this is what most people have in mind when picking out their next sink. However, there are now a wide range of other options to consider, so don’t keep your creativity in your bathroom limited to the typical sink. Consider the following materials for your next sink:


Porcelain sinks are prone to chipping and can come in colors other than white. It’s hard to really go wrong here, but some may feel that a porcelain sink lacks any expression or style.


Like a metal sink, a glass sink makes a statement about your bathroom. Glass sinks can be shaped in a number of ways and are also resistant to chipping.

Cast Iron

Cast iron sinks offer a different style than a typical porcelain sink and are also extremely durable. They are glossy and resistant to scratches, but they are also extremely heavy, just like a cast iron skillet. You’re going to need a sturdy cabinet to hold up this heavy-duty style of sink.


Choosing a metal sink makes a definitive design statement, and they can also be made to be any shape, size or color. They are also very stain resistant. Metal sinks can get a bit pricey, especially depending on what metal you choose, but a trusted expert may be able to help you find one for your budget.

It’ll Be There for a While

While installing a new sink isn’t a permanent decision, it certainly isn’t a bathroom fixture you can quickly change. Consider how much time you spend in front of your sink brushing your teeth, shaving, washing your hands. If that sink begins to malfunction to the point that a new one is necessary, it’s not an easy thing to change.

You may realize that you don’t like the design, color, or style of your sink once it’s already been installed. You will likely have to deal with that decision for a good bit of time into the future. A good sink should be pleasing, so if you find yourself grimacing each time you’ve got to wash your hands, you probably should’ve spent more time considering how the sink you purchased would cause you to react each time you see it.

Your Wallet Will Thank You

When you spend time weighing the options in front of you for your new sink, you will start to get a feel for a good deal. Unless you plan to go above and beyond, a proper sink shouldn’t break the bank, so don’t feel like you should have to get the most expensive model to express your style and look chosen for your bathroom.

Research on your own time or visit a bathroom or kitchen supplier that you trust to see if the sink you plan on purchasing is appropriately priced. The more money you save on your sink, the more can be used towards another project in your bathroom renovation.
