If you are considering upgrading your bathroom, you should really give thought to replacing your existing sink with an undermount sink. No matter what size you are limited to, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding and undermount that suits your bathroom.

One of the most attractive qualities of the undermount bathroom sink is the fact that the finished product is seamless, making cleaning a breeze, and giving your entire room a clean and polished look. Some people are under the incorrect assumption that undermounts are only available in rectangular shapes. As a matter of fact, there are many different shapes, such as oval or round, or even kidney shaped. There are also a variety of materials available, from the traditional look of China, or the country charm of cast iron, to the modern designs of glass and stone, you are sure to find a sink that matches your bathroom decor. One of the leading brand of undermount sinks is Kohler, with decades of experience in the bathroom industry, and a quality that can’t be beat.

Just as there are many different materials and shapes that you can choose from, there are also a large range of prices. At the bottom of the range you can pick up a decent plain undermount for around 60 or 70 dollars, whereas a custom made hand blown glass sink can cost anywhere up to $3,000 and beyond.

When purchasing an undermount sink for your bathroom, special attention needs to be paid to the vanity and counter top on which it will be placed. Traditionally, a wooden vanity with a stone counter top really puts the finishing touch on your new sink. As an alternative to stone or granite, you may want to consider a tiled counter top, and there are a wide variety of tiling options as well.

Finally, give thought to your faucets as well. To finish the look you are after, you have two choices; you can either get a faucet set that will compliment your sink without taking away from it’s charm, or you can purchase ornate faucets that really become the centerpiece of your bathroom. If you some extra money to spare, you may want to consider getting an electric faucet, they are easier to install than you may think, and provide and added layer of luxury to your bathroom.
