What size is your bathroom sink?

I am remodeling my bathroom. Ordered a new tub and am now looking for a new sink. The original sink is aprox. 15 1/4 x 16 1/2 x 6. It is one molded piece that just sits on the top of the cabinet. I can not find a sink the same size. I am wondering if the smaller sink that is 12 x 16 x 6 is too small.

So what size is your sink? Is it mounted in a counter top? Is it a corner?

We had what I would call a standard size oval lav in our Corian top. We took out the old lav, overlayed the top with a 1/2" layer of new corian and mounted a "Vessels" type sink. We now have a large lav bowl without giving up any countertop space. See the photo.

Doing the same thing as Dan is near the top of my list of things to do. The OEM plastic sink is small, ugly, easily stained and too low for me and a vessel sink and new countertop will solve all of those problems for us.

also vessel

Hello,

This past spring we also upgraded our bath vanity. It had a vinyl type top and tiny stainless sink, smaller than you guys have. And a cheap faucet of course.

Our solution was to throw the entire top out. We do woodworking and so made the vanity top larger using solid mahogany and put a 16" vessel sink on top.

It looks much much better (I need to take a pic) and is considerably easier to use.

The cheap look was replaced with a high end look. The plumbing was easier than I expected. The faucet was very easy with flex hoses, and the drain took a few parts from Home Depot but was also petty easy.

Good luck. It was a bit of work but well worth it.

Hmm, a vessel sink. I never considered that but getting a bigger sink in the same amount of space seems like a good solution. I will look into that.

Thanks for all the replies.

I overlaid a hard maple countertop and a vessel sink.

That is a good idea, my sink is so small I can barely brush my teeth in it.

Seriously though, the sink in my coach is not only small, it's positioned well back under the medicine cabinet such that I bang my head leaning over to brush my teeth or wash my face. I'm also really tall and the recessed sink is a bit low for me. The vessel sink is going to be a great solution to all three problems for us.

Now all I need is time.

Well folks, my teeth are normal size. What I should have said was I can barely get my head in the sink to wet my hair when I am finished brushing my teeth. Don't ask...my head is also the normal size, what is normal these days? Got to have a sense of humor. That was a good question webegone2, I am still laughing .

Last time I got her so mad, I had my head handed to me. It would not fit in my sink.

Solution. While letting the hot water run down the back of your neck while taking a shower is the best time to brush your teeth. When the water gets cold and your teeth start to chatter it is just like having an electric tooth brush.
