Assess Your Space & Measure The Countertop

Before falling in love with a picture of a beautiful sink you saw online, you need to understand your space and practical needs. If you are replacing your current sink, then you should first examine your bathroom plan, existing plumbing and assess your available space. All you need to do is measure the length, width, and depth of your existing sink and choose a new sink with the same measurements. 

If you would like to try a new style, then simply measure the length and width of your vanity’s existing cutout, along with the depth of your current sink. You need to select a new bathroom sink that is not longer, wider or deeper than your measurements.

If you are designing a bathroom from scratch then you need to choose an installation type based on your overall space and design aspirations. If you would like to install a wall mounted sink , then your floor plan and plumbing needs will determine the size and location for the sink. 


If you are thinking about installing a vessel sink, your countertop space will determine the size. Measure the front of the vanity to the back of the wall, to figure out its depth. Then measure across the top of the vanity’s surface to find out the length. It is important that you leave at least four to six inches of space on each side to have some room for bathroom essentials such as soap. 

Select An Installation Type To Suit Your Bathroom Space

Decide whether a vessel sink, wall mounted sink or freestanding sink would suit your bathroom space, style and practical needs best. 

Vessel Sinks

Vessel sinks are free-standing wash basins that sit on a vanity or piece of furniture. Originally called bowl sinks, vessel sinks are renowned for their luxurious appeal. Extremely elegant and versatile, vessel sinks create a stunning focal point to match any bathroom decor. Easy to install, vessel sinks fit on almost any bathroom vanity. A stylish yet sensible choice, vessel sinks take up very little counter space, making them a great choice for beautiful minimalist style bathrooms. Aquatica offers an extensive selection of exclusive vessel sinks in all different styles, shapes, sizes and colours. 


Wall Mounted Sinks

Wall mounted sinks are installed directly onto the wall. Aquaticas exclusive Millenium wall mounted sink vanity combo offers a simple sophisticated solution to bathroom space and storage issues. This floating washbasin-vanity combo is perfect for all bathroom sizes. It can make even the smallest of bathrooms appear bigger. Wall mounted vanities can be installed at any height, to accommodate shorter and taller users.

Freestanding sinks do not take up much space and are great for narrow rooms. The Aquatica Solo Freestanding Lavatory is a one-of-a kind sink, featuring a luxury and avante-garde appeal. This truly unique sink features an usual asymmetrical and angled rim. It creates a bold bathroom style with a distinctive character.

You can choose any color from the RAL color chart, or choose a MetalX™ surface coating to create an artistic masterpiece in gold, brass, bronze, stainless steel, copper and titanium. 


Choose A Fashionable Faucet To Compliment Your Sink

Select a compatible faucet to match the sink and fulfill your needs. Make sure there is enough space between the faucet and the sink. We recommend a minimum of 6 inches. Aquatica offers a wide range of faucets and taps to perfectly compliment your vessel sink in trendy styles and colours, including chrome, black, polished rose gold and yellow gold.
