Bathroom sinks for commercial or residential usage come in a variety of mounting techniques to make the most of the available space while also adding an aesthetic element if desired. Drop-in or vessel (or bowl) sinks are examples of counter-mounted sinks that are installed above or below the bathroom countertop. Under mount sinks are mounted beneath the countertop and secured with brackets. Pedestal sinks have a stand-alone design that is supported from below by a small column or pedestal. The bathroom wall mounts and supports wall-mounted sinks.
