Benefits of Rectangular Undermount Bathroom Sink
Featured Image: LB18127
With so many different types of bathroom sinks to choose from, it’s not always easy to settle on a single design. Just narrowing down the options to one style can help the process. Undermount sinks, in general, are a great choice for guest and master baths alike. Rectangular designs, in particular, are stylish and give a modern edge to any room. Find out what makes undermount bathroom sinks such an excellent choice for so many spaces.
Easy to Clean
All undermount sinks are easier to clean than overmount designs because of the way the countertop overlaps the edges. Overmount sinks form a raised lip all around the edge of the sink, making it hard to get the area completely clean with just a few wipes. In contrast, allowing the countertop to overlap the sink with an undermount design allows anyone cleaning to quickly wipe messes and debris right down the drain.
Good Opportunity for Contrast
Undermount sinks are ideal for bright colors or unusual materials that might be overwhelming in other styles. Since the countertop runs over the edge of the sink, its visual impact is limited and is ideal for a high contrast choice. For example, many homeowners choose to combine bright white undermount sinks with black stone countertops or the reverse combination. High contrast undermount sinks pop without drawing attention from the rest of the room.
Saving Counter Space
Undermount sinks are also great for freeing up counter space. With no raised rim around the edge, it’s easy to arrange cosmetics and self-care tools right up to the edge of the sink. It’s also easier to arrange for an alternative placement for a faucet when working with an undermount sink with optional escutcheons to cover the holes.
Oval-shaped undermount sinks can develop splashing problems if the bathroom faucets paired with them are too short. This puts too much pressure behind the water as it splashes into the sink, often shooting it out one side as the oval shape directs it towards the edges. Rectangular undermount sinks are carefully angled so that water falls almost without splashing right into the drain. This reduces messes around the sink, making them the ideal choice for busy family bathrooms.
