Choosing the Perfect NYC and NJ Bathroom Sink

March 24, 2010

The NJ or NYC bathroom sink along with the shower/tub and toilet, is one of the most important parts of your Manhattan or New Jersey bathroom design. Whether you choose a dramatic imported ceramic vessel sink or porcelain his-and-her pedestal sinks, the color, shape and type of sink you choose can have a dramatic impact on your New Jersey bathroom’s design. Your home itself may even guide your sink choice: a small city bathroom can be made to feel more spacious with a wall-mounted sink while a sprawling suburban manor would do well with a vanity sink.

Pedestal sinks feature a bowl placed at a comfortable standing height that rests on a pedestal base. Porcelain pedestal sinks are particularly popular because their white color complements every design and they offer a clean, crisp look. These sinks, while they save on space and exude a look of minimalism, lack the storage of a cabinet or countertop sink. You can offset that lack of space with a nearby bureau, medicine cabinet, or closet in an adjacent hallway.

Wall mounted or floating sinks hand from a wall at a comfortable standing height. You can purchase a wall mounted sink with a matching base beneath the basin for extra support and to conceal plumbing. Wall mounted sinks are a particularly wise choice in smaller bathrooms (NYC) and for homeowners who crave the minimalist look. As with pedestal sinks, wall mounted sinks don’t provide any storage, so you’ll have to make provisions for storing toiletries and sundries in your design scheme.

Vessel Sinks
Vessel sinks are simply bowls that rest on a countertop or, more uncommonly, attach to the wall with a bracket. These distinct sinks offer the most possibility for adding flare and a dash of panache to your Manhattan bathroom design. An imported ceramic and glass sink in any one of a variety of colors, designs, and textures can serve as a truly unique focal point for your NYC or NJ bathroom. If you choose to mount your vessel sink of a countertop, you’ll also have plenty of storage underneath.

Vanity or Countertop Sink
A vanity sink is a basin that fits directly onto a countertop. You can also choose an under-counter sink, which is attached to the underside of the countertop. (This is the type of sink that you’re probably most familiar with.) Both types of sinks are used with NYC bathroom vanities and consoles to provide storage space. Pairing the basin with the vanity and both in turn with the bathroom’s overall design, can add texture and depth to your bathroom In Bergen County or Plainview Long Island.
