Types of Vanity Sink

We all know how important a vanity sink is in the bathroom. A vanity sink is a binding of the sink and the storage area which hides all the plumbing pipes and other things. We have gathered all the ‘in trends’ vanity in one place and came down with the top 3. The top 3 vanity sinks we have been receiving many orders and customisation are below:

a. Above Counter Sink
It is a basin that sits on top of the vanity’s bench.

b. Drop in Sinks
The drop-in vanity sink is a self-rimming sink where it is mounted on top of the vanity leaving the rim visible around the benchtop. It is more common for kitchen sinks, but these days you can find these styles in the bathroom as well.

c. Circle Bowl Basin
Round or bowl basins are the new trends because of their unique shapes.

Tips: Before choosing which vanity sink you are after, it is advisable to consider the user of the basin. Are they adults, kids, elderly people or visitors? Then, measure the diameter of the vanities for the sink before choosing your vanity. This eases your decision making as these 2 steps will filter out the basin that is not fitting to your vanity.

Seamless Vanity Sink
The seamless design seems to be the popular look sought after these days because it is considered one of the features of modern furniture. Looking seamlessly beautiful gives a few advantages. Firstly, no doubt it will not run out of style easily as the design is minimal. Secondly, it is easy to clean as features like rim, nooks and crannies are removed from the design. Hence, cleaning the surface is smoother and easier.
Choosing the right Materials

Why is knowing the material of a vanity sink is important? The materials of a vanity sink represent the style and quality of your bathroom focus point. Having a better understanding of these fine aspects of these sinks can also serve as an aide-memoire of your bathroom’s style. After all, it can be overwhelming when you are designing every detail of your home interior. So, the following are the common materials used:

a. Porcelain
Porcelain sinks are the most durable raw material because it is formed in a kiln at the highest temperature resulting in the hardest clay available. The temperature can go up to 1400 degrees, making sure the clay is watertight. The average lifespan of the porcelain sink can be up to 50 years. The best part is the porcelain basin in the market is priced very reasonably and comes in a variety of colors and shapes to suit everyone’s style. This makes it a popular choice among shoppers.

b. Ceramic Sink
Ceramic Sink would be the alternative to porcelain. The ceramic sink is also made from clay and hardened by heat, however, there are few differences such as the temperature, other materials involved and how the shape are formed. Typically, a ceramic sink is formed by mixing clays, powders and water and shaping it to the desired basin sink like pottery. The heating temperature to remove the water molecules is set roughly at 760 degrees. The common problem found in ceramic ware is they tend to chip or crack.

c. Stainless Steel Sink
Stainless steel sink is a common pick for commercial, education and medical institutions. For personal space, it is usually installed in the kitchen. This is because it is durable for commercial usage and relatively inexpensive. The durability of the material makes it resistant to vandalism. In the event of vandalism, it may be a dent or crack which can be fixed by professionals. The maintenance and cleaning times are less as the colour of stainless steel makes the sink always appear sanitary.

d. Wood Sink
For homeowners who are into rustic and natural looks, a wood sink is your calling. Wood The manufacturers, usually teak or bamboo is the go-to wood to use. This is because it is resistant to mould and fungi which tends to thrive easily in a moisture environment.

e. Cast Polymer Sink
If porcelain and ceramic sinks may be over your renovations budget while you do not want to compromise your bathroom look, introducing cast polymer sinks. The next common question we get asked will be “Will that compromise the quality?” The answer is no. Cast Polymer Sinks are still resistant to crack.

f. Glass Sink
The fragility of glass sinks is nothing to be worried about. They are made from tempered glass for durability and user safety. Tempered glass undergoes chemical methods and thermal heating up to 600 degrees to ensure it does not break easily. This does not mean they are resistant to chips and crack.

Plumbing Problems
Like all the products in a house, some may find clogging issues from their vanity sink which can be avoided easily. Clogging happens when the hair and dirt, combining with the soap, gather on the walls of the pipes. The best advice to prevent the vanity sink from clogging is to avoid washing your hair in your vanity sink as much as possible. Although we do admit it is an effective and time-saving method to wash our hair especially during the morning rush. However, a vanity sink is designed for daily routines like brushing your teeth and hair, facial cleansing, and shaving. Short length hairs from your face are thin enough to be flush down the sink’s pipe. However, head hair is longer and thicker, so it will eventually be stuck in the filter causing the sink to clog. Only basins found in hair saloons can be used for hair wash as they are designed for the purpose.
Tapware & Tapholes
While you are choosing your vanity sink, please keep in mind your tapware design is also matching with your choice basin. Aside from that, you need to take note of the number of tap holes your sink offers. A quick guide will be 1 for modern looking, 2 for a traditional style where the hot and cold are separated and 3 for filter water which is rarely the case needed for bathroom vanity sinks.
