Marbleized Bowl/Counter Units
There are two kinds of marbleized bowl and counter units: acrylic plastic and cast methacrylate, both of which can contain veining that simulates, in a highly polished surface, that of marble (Fig 243) They re even referred to as synthetic marble Both come in various colors and finishes, including high-gloss onyx models These sinks are frequently integrated into a vanity countertop, with one-piece construction They have a popular appearance, are easy to clean, and can be molded A marbleized sinktop into beautiful patterned bowls (in the form of a seashell, for example) The main drawback to marbleized surfaces is that the finished layers are very thin A heavy scratch can penetrate the coating and expose the white material underneath, which is difficult to cover up or repair
Sinks and counters made of solid composite materials are made with the color, often a bone white, all the way through the material If scratched there s no color change and the mark can be easily removed with steel wool or fine sandpaper Solid composites can also be sawn, drilled, and filed with standard carpentry tools for custom applications It s one of the better materials for bathroom (and kitchen) counters and sinks, but it s also one of the most expensive
Sinks and countertops made of concrete that s custom-formed, stained and sealed can be created right on site by individuals who specialize in finished concrete work (See the section on kitchen countertops) It s an option that you may want to consider if you like components that are artistically stylish and one-of-a-kind

BATHROOM SINK INSTALLATION
A bathroom sink should be large enough for comfortable use, especially if it must suffice to wash your hair or bathe an infant Try not to select anything smaller than 20 by 24 inches In master bedrooms, consider a double-bowl arrangement Every sink should have at least a narrow backsplash along the back of the wall it s mounted against, to protect the wall from spilled or splashing water A drip edge should be included at the front and side ends of the countertop or around the tops of basin lavatories to prevent water from overrunning the top surfaces onto the floor Sinks should also have an overflow prevention catch hole that drains water after it reaches a certain upper level in the bowl
Toilets or water closets are made in various grades, from lowcost models to luxurious units with gold-leaf seats The best buys are usually in the middle of any manufacturer s range Toilets also come in water-saving designs that operate with less water than standard models an especially helpful feature if you re in an area having
