Whether you’re considering quartz countertops or have just had a new quartz countertop put in your bathroom, you’ll need to find the perfect sink to complete the look.

Bathroom Sink Materials
When choosing a bathroom sink, consider different materials such as porcelain, stainless steel, and tempered glass.
Porcelain, vitreous china, enamel-coated, and fireclay are traditional materials used for a bathroom sink. Porcelain sinks offer a clean, crisp look to accompany your quartz countertops. However, according to a consumer report, porcelain sinks tend to chip or crack more quickly than other materials.
The advantages of porcelain or enamel-coated cast-iron are that they are easy to clean and stain-resistant. This type of sink also comes in many colors, so it’s easy to match your bathroom vanity, countertop, and fixtures.
Tempered glass sinks are made from glass that has been heated to extremely high temperatures to make them durable and scratch-resistant. Able to withstand tough staining agents, like acetone nail polish remover and drain cleaners, these sinks are a beautiful addition to your bathroom.
Tempered glass sinks are highly resistant to heat and come in many styles, mounting options, and colors but have been known to shatter from impacts such as an object falling from a medicine cabinet.
Stainless steel sinks appear in many kitchen remodels and are becoming a popular option for bathrooms. Stainless steel sinks offer a complementary look for quartz countertops and can bring out different colors and patterns in the natural stone.
Stainless steel is durable and water-resistant. It’s also easy to clean and lends an industrial, urban visual to your bathroom space. Motor City Granite & Cabinets can help you find the perfect stainless steel sink for your bathroom. Our design professionals can work with you to discover a functional and modern stainless steel sink for your bathroom.
Mount Styles for Bathroom Sinks
Motor City Granite & Cabinets partners with Blanco and Delta for multiple mount style options.
Undermount sinks are a stylish choice for quartz bathroom countertops. They’re installed so that they hang beneath the countertop surface, creating sleek, clean lines ideal for contemporary homes.
Undermount sinks are easy to clean and maintain because the lipless sink design prevents crumbs, grime, and debris from building up underneath. Undermount sinks are typically deep and spacious. This design helps prevent splash back from faucets when washing your face and hands or brushing your teeth.
It is essential to have your undermount sink installed professionally to avoid damaging your quartz countertops. Work with Motor City Granite & Countertops for professional sink installation for your bathroom remodel.
Drop-in or top mounted sinks are lowered into the counter, with the rim of the sink overlapping the counter. A drop-in sink is versatile and goes well with almost any bathroom countertop. These sinks come in various colors, materials, and styles to make your bathroom a dream room.
Another variety of a top mount sink is a vessel sink. This type of sink sits entirely on the counter and is gaining popularity for its modern, unique, and stylish appeal. Vessel sinks can be made of any material commonly used in sinks and are also found in unique materials such as copper, granite, and stone.
A dual mount sink can be dropped from the top of the counter or lifted and installed from underneath the counter. A dual mount sink gives you the versatility of deciding which type of installation you want.
Wall mounted sinks are mounted to your wall instead of your cabinets or countertops. This type of installation is also called a floating sink. Floating sinks can be modified to fit and work with countertops and vanities, with the plumbing being hidden underneath.
Bathroom Sink Design Options
When choosing the perfect sink to complement your bathroom design, you can choose from several design options such as farmhouse, modern, or industrial.
A farmhouse-style sink is an on-trend yet timeless fixture for your bathroom and perfectly complements the elegant aesthetic of your quartz countertops. Often available in porcelain, stainless steel, and other materials, farmhouse sinks are more ergonomic than other styles of bathroom sinks.
Modern sinks create a clean, minimal aesthetic in your bathroom. A modern sink typically comes in blacks, grays, tans, or white and pairs perfectly with the look of natural granite countertops. Modern sinks feature clean lines rather than curves, so opt for square or rectangular sinks in subtle, natural colors if you’re going for a modern look..
Using metal, often stainless steel, copper, or bronze, on a granite or quartz countertop gives your bathroom an industrial aesthetic. This look is perfect for quartz countertops with gray or silver flecks. If you prefer an urban visual, look for rectangular sinks with straight, steamless angles.
