Gone are the days when the simple white sink dominated the bathroom design scene. Nowadays, in addition to this more classic, but timeless model, there are also sinks of all shapes, with colours and finishes to suit all preferences.

Are you looking for the perfect sink and vanity to embellish your bathroom while meeting your needs? We have found 10 models of sinks to suit all tastes and budgets.

10 different types of bathroom sink models

1- Small and round vessel sink placed on a shelf

Instead of opting for the traditional bathroom vanity, these homeowners have instead chosen to place this small round sink on a shelf. This helps to create a very unique and airy room arrangement. Also, notice the presence of round shapes in several places within the decor like the showerhead, the mirror, the semicircles on the carpet and, of course, the sink.

These sinks or basins are available in several colours and materials, such as gray stone or black ceramic, among others. In addition, as you will see in the next photo, this option is also pretty with more traditional plumbing fixtures.

Round sinks are appreciated for their minimalist aesthetic appearance. The only downside is that a sink installed over a vanity can be more challenging to clean, as water tends to pool on the sides. Therefore, you must be prepared to properly maintain your sink if you opt for this type of vessel sink.

2- Built-in bathroom marble sink and cabinet

A marble bathroom sink? What a luxury! This lovely sink, which was built into a wooden cabinet, appears to come straight out of an Italian villa. It's a bold choice but it works just as much in any modern decor, as it does in a more classic-styled room. The characteristics related to this type of material make it possible to create unique pieces in all possible shapes. This type of sink must be custom-designed. Also, its strength and durability explain the high price tag.

This type of sink must be custom-made.

 

3- A bathroom sink carved into a concrete counter

If you like the elegant and smooth style of concrete, this is a very unique option! A custom-made concrete sink can be made into any shape and slope that you prefer, giving lots of character to your room, in addition to being anti-corrosive and requiring minimal maintenance.

The sink cabinet in this photo was clearly tailor-made for their bathroom. Do you have an idea for a piece of furniture or sink that is out of the ordinary? Talk to your contractor. Maybe they can build it or find someone they trust who can. If you like the idea of ​​having a concrete sink, but don't have the means or the time to custom design it, you can also purchase a ready-made one from a retailer. There aren't a ton of models available on the market,  but they exist and are relatively easy to find.

What are the pros and cons of a bathroom vanity with a built-in concrete sink? First of all, it must be stated that concrete is a durable and highly resistant material. Even if you use it very frequently, there is little chance of damaging it. On the other hand, there are very few products available on the market, so purchasing the sink and installing it could become quite expensive.

This type of sink needs to be custom made, however, if you like concrete sinks, there are some on the market!

4- Marble sink carved into a matching counter

Here is another example of a sink built into its vanity unit. Once again, the cabinet and the sink take on the appearance of marble. Looking at the photo, it is difficult to tell whether we're dealing with real marble or if it is porcelain that reproduces the patterns and textures of marble. If it's marble, this vanity/sink is rather expensive, but if it's porcelain, it may be an affordable option.

The complete structure is made up of a small number of seamless parts, which makes the surface rather watertight. The few seams between sections should be well protected, but this is something your contractor will definitely take into account when installing it.

This type of sink must be custom-made.

 

5- White sink placed on a wooden cabinet

Here we have more classic vanity and sink models. The dark wood cabinet has a bit of a retro look, highlighted by the fact that everything fits almost perfectly between the walls. The sink is white, smooth and easy to clean, with few crevices for dirt to lodge itself. For those who prefer simplicity in terms of maintenance, we strongly encourage you to consider buying a sink that is built into the counter. It's more waterproof, cleaning is simple, and the look is impeccably elegant.

6- Giant bathroom sink with a large wooden drawer

Would you like to integrate storage into your bathroom while maintaining a minimalist decor? You can install a drawer under a large sink. You'll have plenty of hidden storage space, as well as the option of adding faucets for a large family getting ready at the same time in the morning!

This type of vanity is especially recommended for replacing vanities with double sinks that are often found in family bathrooms. These can be practical, but they may require additional maintenance as the number of seals is multiplied. Instead, if you opt for a large-format sink, you can concentrate on a single basin and the cleaning process is done more quickly.

 

7- Cabinet with 2 individual round sinks

So far, we hadn't shared an example of double sinks. This type of installation is especially popular with couples and families who have to share the same bathroom. If you have enough space, why not! It is even possible that this addition will increase the value of your house when you try to sell it. What we see below is a rather classic and refined decor style, without being cold and strictly minimalist.

The double sink vanity is very practical for those busy mornings when everyone wants to brush their teeth at the same time, or at the end of the day when one wants to remove their makeup and the other wants to shave. This way, no one ends up huddled on top of each other, feeling the impatience build up as the other person finishes what they're doing.

8- Large vintage-style bathroom sink with 2 taps

Here is another type of sink that is well suited for families, due to its large format. Since it's not built into a vanity, it offers less storage, but its confident retro style creates a great focal point in the bathroom. If you like this type of sink, you can always install storage elsewhere in the room, especially below or above it.

9- Storage unit with 2 rounded sinks

Here is a bathroom decor worthy of a magazine! Simple, a bit bohemian, a bit retro and perfectly balanced. Instead of opting for a closed vanity unit, the owners opted for an open structure with plenty of flexible storage to suit your mood. The two vessels serving as sinks are smooth and refined, reminiscent of the atmosphere of a spa.

The benefit here is the ability to recycle an old piece of furniture, such as a chest of drawers, so that you spend less. By the same token, this means you can get involved in the project while promoting good practices for a healthy environment. You can also hire a contractor to carry out the project if you don't think you have the capacity to do so. In the example shown here, they've opted for countertop vessel sinks, but you could also ask your contractor to find a way to fit an under-mount sink into the cabinet if you prefer that.

10- Single sink with minimalist storage cabinet

Lastly, here is another rather classic sink model. The sink itself is small, but this allows for more counter space to add decorative elements and hygiene-related products. The cabinet that is installed under the sink is simple and elegant. This is an option perfectly suited for a narrower bathroom, such as a powder room!

Besides its size, which is well suited to bathrooms with limited space, the advantage of a bathroom vanity like this is its timeless appearance. It adapts well to modern, classic, minimalist or more fragmented decors.
