Wall mount sinks are simple, economical, and are also available in corner styles. They are most often made of vitreous china, ceramic, fireclay, or porcelain.
Sinks are the most used item in bathrooms and kitchens. They are not only useful but can enhance the style of the room where they are fixed. While deciding the sinks, the strength and durability comes first, and then comes the color and style. It is also very important to think about the use of the sink in a particular area. More than being a functional necessity they have aesthetic appeal. They come in different designs; have softer lines and a variety of finishes.
