From stone and stainless steel to wood, marble, and concrete, there are many options when choosing a material for your washroom basin. Still, we're partial to the classic: ceramic. Why choose a ceramic bathroom sink? Let us count the reasons.
First, let's break down the material. Ceramic (even porcelain ceramic) is a type of pottery — a mixture of clay, powders, and water that is shaped, then hardened by heat. Count on these vessels for durability and functionality. Plus, they're resistant to scratching and chipping, making them a favorite for high-traffic powder rooms.

Now the hard part: Finding one that will complement your bathroom decor. The good news is these sinks come in a variety of shapes, colors, and budgets, so we've started shopping for you. Read on for eight of our favorites.
If you're on the hunt for a modern sink basin to grace your countertop, look for one with a sleek design. We like the beveled sides and rounded shape of this one. It's simple but stunning and will elevate the style of any bathroom. Finish it with a chrome faucet and a less-is-more approach to decor.
This Kohler bathroom sink is a little more special than the average find. In fact, it's made of vitreous china, a ceramic that's been coated with enamel to make it even tougher and shinier. Inspired by studio pottery, this piece has a handcrafted feel, and for good reason: Each sink is one-of-a-kind. Plus, it's available in multiple earthy tones. And we can't get over those divots.
If you're searching for a small bathroom sink, consider a corner option like this one from Nameeks. This particular design can be wall-mounted, which will save on precious square footage in a tiny space. With a classic ceramic design and a white finish, it'll look timeless for years to come.
Stand out with a black vessel sink that has an enamel glaze like this one. You won't regret the smooth, shiny finish (which is scratch resistant). And styling the bathroom vanity will be a breeze because you already have a focal point.
This vessel bathroom sink from Kohler would look classic in a bathroom today or in a decade from now. With a clean, understated rim and flat bottom, this shallow basin sink is perfect for a countertop with more personality (Think marble or striking tile).
This Kohler pedestal sink gets rave reviews on AllModern, and we can see why. It's both sophisticated and functional — the best of both worlds. While the slender column takes up minimal space, the basin's deck offers plenty of room for hand soaps and lotions.
Is this sink concrete or ceramic? Trick question. It's both. The concrete is sealed with ceramic, so it's waterproof and scratch-resistant. Plus, the drop-in design includes a shelf for storage, making it sophisticated and practical.
