Getting a new sink for my bathroom. What is the best kind of material for a sink?

I just want something that holds up and doesn't rust. I am also getting a new vanity, so the sink will be over not under. Thanks.

  • There are literally dozens of good options available for a lavatory sink. The one that is right for you will depend on your budget and your aesthetic. I am assuming you are meaning undermount and that you are referring to the bowl and not the top? A great budget option would be a seamless white cultured marble or onyx top that has an integral bowl. Another common option would be porcelain that is undermounted to another material. Does that help?

    Avoid a vessel sink. I have come across too many people having trouble with them. Specifically, when washing hands the water splashes out of the sink too much creating a mess on the counter. One person reported that just the force of the faucet was splashing water out of the sink.
