Primary Bathroom Renovation: Single vs. Double Sinks

For families renovating their master bathrooms, the question of whether to go with single or double sinks often comes up. Like all remodeling design choices, there are pros and cons to both.

The size of the bathroom will be the motivating factor behind this choice because lack of space will dictate a single sink main bathroom. Let’s explore the pros of cons for each choice so you can make the most informed decision about your bathroom remodel.

Single Sink

The pros of a single sink in the master bathroom are leaving more room for other amenities, such as a larger walk-in shower or a soaker tub.

Secondly, you get more counterspace with the absence of a second sink. Without a second drainpipe in the cabinets below, there is also more room for storage. Of course, it goes without saying that a single sink will cost less than installing a double sink.

Double Sinks

Double sinks offer more privacy for couples sharing a bathroom, which is the main reason they’re chosen.

Especially in primary bathrooms with a lot of space, you can choose a layout that allows for complete separation. Most people choose a prefabricated double vanity but there is also the option of a custom double sink with vanity that allows couples to choose the exact dimensions that make sense in the space.
