Bathroom Planning: Which Sink Will Work Best For You?

When you’re starting out on bathroom renovations, you’ll be faced with selecting a sink style. With so many designs available, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with your choices. That’s why we created this little guide to help you navigate your options and identify what will and will not work for your lifestyle.
 

The Bare Necessities

As a natural minimalist, you have your options open when it comes to sink styles. If you don’t need a lot of products or items for your daily routine and you won’t need to share your sink area, consider doing something striking and unique like a vessel sink. Vessel sinks are bowls or basins that sit on the counter and give you a beautiful, modern bathroom design. They’re a great way to keep your bathroom aesthetic clean and minimal, but also add just the right amount of intrigue.
 

All Hands On Deck

With bathrooms for the whole family, storage is key. Stay away from pedestal sinks and console sinks that look sleek, but lack cabinets, drawers, and surface space. Instead, opt for a storage-oriented option above your base bathroom cabinets like a self-rimming sink that will sit right on the counter and make your home decor classic and easy to maintain.
 

Bathroom For Two

Couples need more storage options when they share a bathroom, so it’s best to opt for sink styles that are elegant and bold, but without compromising functionality. Vanities with storage cabinets below, or even double sinks (if you have space) are great interior design ideas for couples.
 

Beauty Queen

If you love makeup, skincare, and beauty products and you’re always eager to try the latest trends, you’re going to need a lot of surface space. Stay away from pedestals that don’t give you a lot of room to put down brushes and lipsticks as you go, and consider an undermount sink instead. Undermount sinks are completely seamless with counters, and are extremely easy to wipe down. They look great, give you full access to rest items on the side of your sink, and optimize all your surface area as well.
 

Kids Zone

Kids usually have a small amount of products to store, but they can make a big mess with the few products they do use. Wall-mounted sinks are a great option for children’s bathrooms because they are so easy to clean, and they keep floor space open for step stools, bath toys, and extra bottles of no-tears shampoo.
