Bathroom Sinks and Vanities: Beautiful Ideas from Rate My Space

Bedroom Furniture Goes to the Bath

When HGTV fan rachelcar decided to renovate, she wanted to create an urban, chic bathroom. She opted for vessel sinks and retrofitted dressers rather than typical cabinetry.  

Small But Sassy

A small space doesn't have to mean a diminutive vanity. In this tiny powder room, HGTV fan KarenSpirit replaced a pedestal sink with a more substantial, freestanding vanity. Choosing an undermount sink and adding a clever tile accent along the walls makes the room look larger.

A Pair of Pretty Pedestals

This master bathroom renovation is many years in the making. HGTV fan paintingismypassion chose his-and-hers pedestal sinks with a granite-topped cabinet in between and another storage solution above.  

Travertine and Copper

This spa-inspired, DIY bathroom by HGTV fan inputplease begs for attention. A duo of travertine sinks and copper faucets are the icing atop a vanity that boasts cabinet and drawer space. Another fave detail: the laundry chute. A sensible amenity for this attic turned bath retreat.

Copper, Bronze & Stone

HGTV fan vickiborn chose a custom-built cabinet to pair with a hammered copper sink and bronze faucet. She added smart built-in niches, a stone accent wall and dared to go beyond a white toilet for a stunning combination of color, texture and style.

High-Rated Repurpose

HGTV fan Colleen_Christine likes the look of spindle-leg sink consoles — but not the high price tags. She found this bargain that needed TLC, and with vision and paint, created a custom piece that looks like a million bucks.  

Granite & Glass

HGTV fan FabSusan calls this space her Venetian guest bath, and what a treat for company! Susan was inspired by this Italian granite that she chose to top with a glass vessel sink. A great way to show off a beautiful piece of stone.

Modern and Wall-Mounted

HGTV fan Timdreese chose to go ultra modern when he renovated his 1960s master bath. A wall-mounted, Italian sink is a high-style choice. Though not ideal for a renovator wanting a lower-priced look or someone who prefers an expanse of counter, it's a beautiful look.

One of the most common and economical bathroom sink styles is the drop-in sink. This style fits into a hole in a vanity cabinet or sink stand, and it can be easily installed or removed. A common material for a drop-in sink is affordable porcelain, but these sinks are available in a wide range of materials, from plastic to metal to glass.

Pedestal sinks are another common style of bathroom sink. These are often constructed of porcelain, though metal or plastic options are also available.

Undermount sinks are slightly higher in price than drop-in sinks, but they have a similar style, with one exception—they sit flush on the surface of the vanity, whereas drop-in sinks fit over the lip of the hole in the vanity. These sinks are also available in a wide range of styles and materials, including porcelain and metal.

Finally, for a high-end option, consider a vessel sink. These "floating" sinks sit on top of a vanity as a bowl or rectangular vessel. They offer a bold and distinctive visual style, and they're available in a wide range of materials, including porcelain, metal and glass.
