Types of sinks

If you are thinking of changing the Restroom sink or the toilet and you want to choose a type of washbasin that fits your personality and the decoration of your home, don't worry, nowadays there is a wide variety of designs of all kinds and for all kinds of people. We can find modern and minimalist sinks that are located on countertops or rustic models with pedestal, but it is advisable to know all the options that we have, so I want to make a small list of the different types of sinks that we can find.

Types of washbasin depending on their shape and placement:

- Freestanding or pedestal sinks

They were the most used sinks in the 70s and are the most common in apartment construction since they are cheap and easy to get. Currently, vintage-style models have been designed perfect for bathrooms that want to give an old look.

- Countertop or countertop washbasins

This type of washbasin is located on a surface or countertop without recessing. There is a great variety of models of this type of battery since, as they are independent of any furniture or wall, the shapes they can have are almost infinite. They are the most used today for this same reason and also come in all kinds of materials, from glass and stone to treated wood or metals such as copper.

- Built-in or under-plan sinks

This type of washbasin is placed in the lower part of the countertop so that it does not protrude from it.

- Wall-mounted sinks

This type of sanitation is characterized by being located on the wall without any countertop, foot or accessory furniture. They are perfect for small toilets or minimalist style bathrooms. They have the disadvantage of having little space to place or support accessories such as the soap dispenser.
