Most bathroom sinks are made from porcelain but they can be made out of glass, metal, or stone. Porcelain is still the best material based on its durability and ease of cleaning and maintaining. Stone, which some small vessel sinks are made out of, might be the most difficult to keep clean because most stone is not a totally smooth surface.
Great bathroom sink ideas are all about what you as an individual wants. Be careful to remember that if you get something with a unique style that is totally hot right now it may not be a popular style 5 or 10 years from now.
