The use of copper for the wash basin is not a brand new concept. Before the modern manufacture of vitreous china sinks, copper was one of the better choices available and was mined for use in many objects, not just the bathroom and kitchen where we so often see it today.

While a classic pedestal sink can still be found, a broad variety of colors and shapes are now available in all manner of contemporary design. You no longer must adhere to the classic oval or round pedestal sink. I’ve seen square pedestal sinks that look great in the right bathroom design.

With this Bathroom Sinks Guide, I will address the many options you have as well as the many variables you must consider before making your choice.
There is a wide range of sinks that you can buy that will suit any bathroom. The most traditional sinks are constructed from porcelain and are round, oval or square. Porcelain is the most popular material because it is smooth, strong and waterproof. If you want a personalized sink then it is possible to have custom-made sinks made to your color and liking. This is a more expensive option than buying off the floor.
The more modern bathroom sinks can be made from glass or metal. Glass sinks can be made with a colorful and unique look. Metal sinks can be constructed from brass, chrome, copper or stainless steel.

Copper and copper apron sinks have long been part of an elegant kitchen. Often copper pots and pans are kept in the kitchen where people can see them as decoration because of their rustic and attractive color.
