5 Styles of Sinks to Fit your Home’s Esthetic

There are several styles and mounting methods of sinks to choose from when planning your bathroom or kitchen remodel. When most people think of a sink, they probably think of the traditional drop-in style. However, there are 4 other styles that I would like to share with you that may enhance your kitchen or bathroom. Sinks can add a certain esthetic to a room and that may be important to focus on in your overall design.

Drop In Sink by Kohler

This sink may be your best bet if you’re on a budget. The installer cuts the outline of the sink, places the sink in its designated spot and seals the counter top and the lip of the sink. While you may not have the convenience of sweeping debris straight into the sink like the integral style mentioned later in this piece, it does have a homier feeling.

Integrated Sink by Kohler

The sink and counter top are made from the same material. You may see this in stainless steel or solid-surface materials. This style is advantageous because of the element of easy clean-up. You can sweep any debris into the sink without worrying about build-up in crevices. This sleek style would bring a modern look to an older kitchen.

Pedestal Sink by Kohler

A pedestal sink is a sink that, you guessed it, sits on a pedestal. It’s sleek appearance can fit into smaller bathrooms to allow for more space. These sinks come in 2 parts. The sink is mounted to the wall and the pedestal is mounted to the floor. The pedestal is open in the back, allowing access to drain pipes.



Vessel Sink by Kohler

A vessel sink is a basin that sits completely above the counter top. They have no faucet holes, so the fixtures need to be mounted on the wall or counter top. Consider choosing a counter top somewhat lower than most to allow for the taller sides of the basin.


Apron Front Sink by Kohler

Apron Front
If you love to cook, this sink may be the most beneficial to you. This sink is installed with an exposed front and a wider, deeper display. This style not only allows for comfortably standing directly over it, its larger size allows for more room for the bigger pots and pans.
