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.
