A bath vanity is made up of components including a cabinet, a bath vanity top, and a bath vanity sink. These parts of a bath vanity can come in many material options, with wood, stone, and copper bath vanity furniture as some options for your bathroom. With many styles, including vintage bath vanity and luxury bath vanity options, available, both the bath vanity cabinet and sink have a few options. While the size of a bath vanity can vary, with a small size being a 24, 25, or 26 inch bath vanity, another factor that can affect the size of a bath vanity is the sink. A bath vanity sink comes in a number of designs and can be installed in a number of ways on the bath vanity top that will increase or decrease the amount of space available in bath vanity cabinets.
The types of bath vanity sinks available include wall mounted sinks, pedestal sinks, vessel sinks, framed sinks, drop-in sinks, under mount sinks, and bath vanity cabinet style sinks. Some of these bath vanity sink designs, such as mounted and pedestal sinks, are only common in contemporary bath vanity styles, which often have the bath vanity cabinet and sink separate. Others are common for traditional bath vanities and vanity tops. A vessel sink, for example, is a bath vanity exposed sink or a bath vanity set bowl sink; for either name, the bowl of the sink sits on the bath vanity top. The bath vanity exposed sink is mounted to the bath vanity top or cabinet, which is mounted to the wall or floor. The materials used for a bath vanity set bowl sink include glass, stone, and porcelain options. Although a bath vanity exposed sink sits above the bath vanity top, the plumbing is still concealed by the bath vanity cabinets.
A framed sink is another option for a bath vanity, and the name is self explanatory for this type of bath vanity sink. This style sink is installed into the bath vanity top and is trimmed with a metal frame. The materials used for this bath vanity sink are usually iron, porcelain, or steel. A drop-in sink, on the other hand, is installed similarly into a bath vanity top, only the hole on the vanity top is smaller and the rim of the sink is above the bath vanity top. Some designs for this sink include at least half of the sink above the bath vanity top, and this is typical for both traditional and contemporary bath vanity styles. This type of bath vanity exposed sink is secured with a clamp underneath and is usually constructed with porcelain enameled cast iron or vitreous china, although glass and stone options are available. Other options for installing a bath vanity sink include an under mount sink, which is installed directly below the bath vanity top and the top has an overhang into the sink bowl.
A sink is a significant part of a bath vanity and many options are available for your bathroom. While vintage bath vanity styles and contemporary bath styles differ in the materials used, the type of bath vanity sinks available can suit all styles and designs for a bath vanity. Even for a double sink bath vanity, all of these sink designs are options for your bath vanity.
