The pedestal bathroom sinks are the most common type of sink that is seen in bathrooms of most homes all over this world. It is also the most popular type of bathroom sinks. They are mounted on a single column or legs. The most common pedestal sinks is of the porcelain material and are now available in different sizes and fast colors that add beauty and elegance to the modern bathrooms. Wall mount sinks are fixed to the wall with the sinks mounted on the metal rods drilled into the wall. This is the only support for the basin of the sink. The only advantage of this sink is that the plumbing will not be visible on the outside of the wall. The vanity sink is probably the most commonly found sink. Here the sink bowl is under mounted inside any countertop and has a cabinet storage space beneath it and all the plumbing is concealed inside the cabinet.
Marble sinks gives a shiny and elegant finish to your luxury kitchen. But maintaining this look can be a problem, due to the porosity of the marble. Sealing helps to prevent this to a particular extent. But various juices, soft drinks and house hold cleaning liquids may cause dirty spots on the marble.
A good number of kitchen sinks are made from stainless steel. Such models are held in position using clips on the underside of the counter-top. This means that the clips you used for your old sink can be used to mount the new sink. If you cannot use them you should request for clips from the store you bought your sink from.
Stone sinks add class to any kitchen or bathroom. Stone sinks are porous and will get stains easier than any other sink material. Stone absorb fluids and allows it to remain below its surface. It is necessary to wipe any fluid that remains on the stone sinks as early as possible longer exposure to staining fluids causes deeper penetration of the stain and the staining will become permanent and difficult to remove. Granite and marble are the most commonly used stone sinks. They need different cleaning processes, as the porosity is different.
The current trend is starting to change in the stainless steel undermount sink. In the past most people preferred a double bowl sink, however a single large bowl is being selected much more frequently. It would seem many people are using the dishwasher and they want a larger single sink to wash just the pots and pans. It should be noted that the largest undermount single bowl on the market today is typically 30 inches long (measured horizontally) by 18 inches wide (front to back). This does not seem like big difference from the typical double bowl that measures 33 inches long (measured horizontally) by 22 inches wide (front to back), but the reality is the reduction of the sink size allows for much greater room behind the sink which will now open up your faucet choices and it also allows placement of the sink a little farther back in the countertop which allows the front edge of the counter top more meat which helps significantly in keeping breakage of the countertop to a minimum. This is truly important because most solid surface countertops fail at this critical point not only at installation but a year or two after installation after your fabricator is now no longer responsible.
