I fondly remember my grandmother’s old cast iron bathroom faucet. It was pure white with two huge sinks. The enamel had started to flake in some places, but it seemed to be worn around the house.

Today, there are many more styles of sinks to choose from. The sinks are much more durable and many are made of man-made materials. Older taps give a traditional feel. Today’s newer styles are more stylish for urban and contemporary buyers. Vintage faucets still exist, but even they are more elegant than their predecessors.

Styles summary

Glass: The most elegant aspect is glass. There are custom hand blown faucets you can buy, with long, elegant spouts, in a variety of colors, to match your sink. Most glass sinks come in clear or black. Consider spending enough money to get a warm basin because it is much safer. The most sophisticated look is a dark black glass sink with an oil rubbed black faucet. Clear sinks and taps are also a good option. Clear glass makes the room feel bright and fun. Glass faucets can cost less than $ 75.00 and more than $ 2,000.00.

Copper – Bacteria cannot grow on copper. Since faucet sinks have a lot of bacteria, copper is a sterile option. Also, copper will patina (most people love this) with age. Copper is a high-end faucet sink.

Stainless steel – the most popular kitchen sink. Simple, light, beautiful and resistant. This sink is the cheapest to own.

Corian: Corian is a sink that is molded directly into the countertop. It is made of a very hard plastic. It resembles natural stone and granite products. The cost is similar. People prefer Corian because the built-in sink is easy to clean.

Vitreous Clay: Vitreous Clay is a ceramic-based product. Vitreous clay products come in bold, bright colors. Most, however, are white.

Cast Iron – Cast iron sinks are the most durable and heavy. Today they are enameled with a ceramic epoxy coating. This coating can scratch with years of use and abuse. However, the sink will remain intact. Cast iron sinks are primarily preferred for laundries and areas where durability is an issue.
