Drop-in Sinks
These sinks fit right into a vanity of counter tops and are the easiest to install. You can also maintain an undercounter storage space just below so this can save you some space especially if your area is not that spacious.

Console Lavatories
Console lavatory sinks are classic but the designs have modernized. The bases of this type of sink appear to look like an outline do that the plumbing is exposed.

There are lots of varied styles for bases and basins that you could choose from.

Vessel Sinks
These bowel-shaped sinks sit on top of a countertop or a vanity instead of it being sunk into the countertop or vanity itself. Currently, there are a lot of vessel sink styles to choose from and in a variety of materials. They can be quite pricey but they can give your bathroom the stunning look that you want.

Other Considerations
Once you have chosen the type of bathroom sink that will fit into the size and design of your bathroom, you must check the details of the sink you chose. You need to make sure that the exact dimensions of the sink are just right for the area where you plan to have it placed. Also, you need to consider the faucets that you plan to install.

Lastly, you need to make sure that your sink matches the design, the color scheme and the overall atmosphere of your newly-constructed bathroom.
