Choosing the Right Sink for a Master Bathroom
The master bathroom is the place to embrace your dreams of a luxurious, spa-like environment. This starts with a comprehensive design based on your favorite style. The master bath sink plays a surprising role in pulling the decor together. If it stands out in the wrong way, it will distract from the rest of the design. Use these tricks and tips for choosing the right sink for a master bathroom.
Undermount, Semi-Recessed, or Vessel?
Wall-mounted and trough sinks are great for modern bathrooms. But if you’re sticking with a classic vanity, you’ll need to start with a mounted sink style. Both undermount and vessel bathroom sink mounts tend to look modern. Semi-recessed or flush installations are the most traditional. Sinks and vanity tops are available to create any combination you want, so the choice is up to you.
Picking a Shape
Rectangular bathroom sinks offer the most modern look, but they’re a little tricky to keep clean. Rounded bathroom sinks are the traditional option. They’re also widely available in more contemporary styles. Only vessel sinks allow for other shape options since the sink is mounted above the vanity top. Both rectangular and circular sinks are available in all four common mount options.
Master Bathroom Sink Materials
Drop-in recessed and undermount bathroom sinks are commonly made from porcelain. Vessel sinks can range in material from glass to metal or porcelain. Pedestal and wall-mounted sinks are almost exclusively made from some kind of ceramic material. Even when sticking to traditional materials like porcelain, you have glaze color options to match the sink to your decor.
One Master Bathroom Sink or Two?
For most homes, a twin set of master bathroom sinks is a must-have. Double sinks allow two people to get ready for the day or clean up in the evening. Even for individuals, a double sink adds balance to a larger master bathroom space. If more space is desired for the shower or tub, a single sink vanity would work just fine for a master bath.
