Sinks have reinvented themselves as a key element in any bathroom, with the versatility of making a statement or seamlessly tying in with the rest of your décor.
You may already have your eye on a particular design for your bathroom renovation, however it’s important to know exactly how much space you have to play with, in addition to surrounding elements, before finalising your design.
So, to assist you in selecting the perfect sink for both your bathroom layout and lifestyle, we’ll take you through the most popular designs and surfaces:
– above counter
– under counter
Ideal for young families or those that have a narrow vanity but prefer a larger sink, semi-recessed designs hang over the vanity and provide easy access to the spout and tapware.
Perfect for families or those that have a statement vanity, under counter (or undermount) sinks provide a seamless look that maximises bench space but minimises underneath storage. They are also the easiest sink design to clean as water spills can be swept directly into the sink, and there are no exposed lines or crevices for dust and dirt to hide. The ratio of the vanity size to sink size is key, as the installation of under counter sinks requires a custom sized hole to be cut into the vanity, with the exposed edges finished and sealed.
The most popular sink surface for families, acrylic sinks are durable and easy to maintain.
Durable, stylish, scratch and impact resistant, steel sinks are a great alternative to acrylic, making them a popular choice for those with busy lifestyles.
A great alternative to stone, concrete sinks create an understated elegance within any bathroom design. Due to its porous nature, it can stain, scratch and discolour easily, making it an ideal choice for ensuite or guest bathrooms. The rugged appeal of concrete also makes it ideal for both contemporary and industrial decorating styles..
