Countertop lavatories are low-slung units with shallow bowls. Some sit entirely on top of the counter surface-bowl and all-and some have bowls that extend slightly below the countertop surface. Close cousins include vessel and integrated sinks.
Vessel sinks are decorative bowls that sit on top of the countertop, so the outer surfaces are visually prominent. As part of an overall scheme or a stand-alone statement, vessel sinks are eye-catching centerpieces, and finishes include polished stainless steel, hand-painted porcelain, carved stone and spun glass. Because vessels are tall, they require tall or wall-mounted faucet fixtures.
Vessel sinks are considered a stylish, high-end and expensive option—these "floating" sinks sit like a bowl on top of a vanity countertop and are available in all manner of materials, from glass to porcelain to metal.
Integrated sinks have wide, flat edges that are designed to fit flush with countertop materials—typically tile—to provide a smooth transition between the sink and surrounding surfaces. Some are available pre-made from manufacturers of solid surface materials, and a solid surface sink is seamlessly combined into a countertop of various lengths.
