    Choosing the right sink for your bathroom

    Published on 30 January 2019, Wednesday, 6:04 AM

    If you're feeling motivated by the start of spring, you may want to embark on a renovation project to rejuvenate your home.

    A bathroom DIY project is the perfect job to take on if this room of your house is looking a bit tired - whether it's in need of a coat of paint or a new vanity unit.

    With so many options on the market, finding the right sink to suit the decor and your tastes may be a challenge so we've put together a list of some of the most popular styles to give you an idea.

    Above the counter

    An above the counter sink sits above the vanity as a separate unit - making it a focus point of the bathroom. They come in a wide range of materials, shapes and styles, including square, round, oval, glass vessels and oblong. This is ideal if you want to emphasise this area of the bathroom.


    This type of sink is more widely used than above the counter basins - sitting partially on the vanity and partly off it. If you are unsure about a recessed or above the counter sink, then this is the one for you.

    Under the counter

    As it names suggests, this basin sits in the vanity itself - creating a sleek look that is perfect for the modern bathroom.


    An overhang sink juts out from the vanity and is ideal for homeowners who prefer a larger basin in the bathroom.
