How to design a custom sink


A custom sink is the perfect way to personalize your space. Whether it be for your bathroom, kitchen, laundry room, or beverage bar, a custom creation will add a unique look and feel to any room. Designing a custom sink allows you to choose every detail from the material down to the finish. Once you’ve planned your design, our custom stone wholesalers offer a variety of stone slabs to get you started on your project. Here’s everything you need to consider to design your custom sink!


When choosing a color for your custom sink, first determine the overall aesthetic you’re going for. What color scheme have you settled on for your bathroom as a whole - neutrals or pops of color? Are you wanting to mix or match? Once you know this, choosing a color should be easy. Black and white are easy neutrals to incorporate into any existing color palette, but also consider the trends. For example, Green and blue are particularly trendy for incorporating into  bathrooms in 2022. 


Next, decide what size is most appropriate for your sink. The best size will vary based on the function of your space. For instance, your mini bar or laundry room might only require a small sink, while a kitchen where you wash dishes will need additional space, with the standard size being 24 to 36 inches in length. Consider also the depth of your sink to ensure that it fits your specific needs. 


As for the shape of your sink, there’s a lot of room for creativity. Shape options range from square, oval, circle, and many more. You have plenty of options as far as shapes and styles to choose from. Do still keep in mind what you will do in and around your sink, as certain shapes will prove most efficient for different things. For instance, circular shapes are most ideal in bathrooms, while rectangular is favored for kitchens. 


Next, decide what material will function best in your space. While manmade surfaces like stainless steel and acrylic are typically more affordable options, you truly do get what you pay for. Natural stone is more visually appealing, but it’s durable, versatile, resistant and easy to maintain. Some of the natural stones used most commonly for sinks include marble, granite, onyx and travertine. Do your research to decide your preference and then visit our stone wholesalers to make your purchase. 


Once you’ve determined the best material, our stone wholesalers can help determine whether you will need to seal your custom sink. They can also educate you on how to properly care for it to maintain its quality and function for the years to come. 

Now that you know how to design your custom sink, it’s time to invest in the materials to create it. Our stone wholesalers have the materials to get you started. Contact us today for your natural stone!
