Installation Choices

You can have a free-standing bathroom sink or one that is placed on a countertop. There are even bathroom sinks that now hang on the wall. The option you choose will depend on how much plumbing will have to be redone and how much space requirement you have. The least expensive option is often the white porcelain bathroom sink which is the traditional option. These can be found in round, oval or square designs to fit into corners. However, there are still other bathroom sink options as well.

You can have a solid surface countertop which has the bathroom sink molded and integrated right into the design of the counter which is an excellent solution. For these counter sinks you have a wide variety of quality and price options. They come pre-molded in various standard sizes at most home improvement centers. If you want a custom-molded option that is professionally installed then it will cost more.
