Wall-Mount vs. Vanity-Top Sink

wall-mount-sink-faucet-installation-west-hartford-ct Wall-mount sink we installed in West Hartford CT

There are so many design options when choosing a bathroom sink. Try not to get too overwhelmed! Think about who will be using it and how your bathroom is laid out. Do you need extra storage? Do you mind looking at exposed plumbing? Once you think about what you want your sink to do, choosing one is simple! There are five main styles: vanity-top, console, pedestal, vessel or wall-mount sinks. In this blog, we'll compare the wall-mount and vanity-top options.

Wall-mount sink

If you have a very small bathroom layout, a wall-mount sink is the perfect choice. It can be installed at any height. It's also the perfect option for wheelchair accessibility.

You will need heavy-duty brackets because most wall-mount sinks are porcelain. The sink can be the sole element or it can be incorporated into a counter top.

To create even MORE space in a cramped bathroom, consider installing a wall-mount in a corner. Corners are the most wasted space in a bathroom. For more ways to make your small bathroom look bigger, please see one of our previous blog posts.

If you have a limited budget or don't want to spend a lot of money on a bathroom sink, a vanity-top is the best choice. The sink is usually the focal point of the bathroom but you don't have to sacrifice style.

There are oval, round and square options in a variety of materials. Ceramic, glass, porcelain and metal options can be set into counter top in a variety of pleasing combinations.

We installed an integral vanity-top sink in Canterbury CT. An integral sink is made from the same material as the countertop. It's a seamless look if installed by a professional.

    I had Rapid Service come to my home because there was a saddle valve under my kitchen sink that was about to make a huge mess. I wasn't able to use my filtered water faucet until the repair was made. The technician fixed it AND had a great attitude while he worked. That is a rare thing lately...
