What is a concrete floating sink?

Concrete floating sinks are an innovative and aesthetically pleasing addition to modern bathroom designs. These sinks are made from lightweight glass fiber-reinforced concrete, and they float above the vanity or countertop. The floating effect is achieved by clever design and engineering, often utilizing hidden support structures or brackets on the wall, thus its alternative name: wall-mounted sink.

Why wall mounted concrete sinks?

A concrete floating sink has many benefits:

Space-Saving

Wall-mount concrete sinks are ideal for small bathrooms or powder rooms where floor space is limited. Since they don't require a bulky vanity or cabinet, they create a more open and spacious feel in the room.

Customizable Height

When installing a wall-mount sink, you have the flexibility to position it at a height that suits your needs, whether you prefer a standard height or something higher or lower for accessibility reasons.

Ease of Cleaning

With no pedestal or vanity to work around, cleaning the floor beneath a floating concrete sink is much easier. This can be particularly advantageous in commercial settings where hygiene is crucial.

Modern Aesthetic

Floating sinks often have a sleek and minimalist design that complements contemporary bathroom styles. They can give a bathroom a more modern and airy look compared to traditional pedestal or vanity sinks.

Accessibility

Mounting the sink on the wall can make it more accessible for individuals with mobility issues or those who use wheelchairs, as it allows for greater clearance underneath the sink. This is especially relevant in commercial spaces - where ADA guidelines need to be observed,

Versatility

Wall-mounted concrete sinks come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and materials, making them suitable for a wide range of design preferences and architectural styles. This permits greater flexibility in bathroom & powder room design.

Installation

The method used to install the sink is of paramount importance. Insufficient mounting can lead to issues down the road—or even worse, damage and injury. There are two accepted methods for installing concrete floating sinks. Details below.

Brackets

Brackets attach to studs in the wall or to a block installed on the wall. This method is completely concealed from view (unless you look under the sink). Trueform uses engineered steel brackets for maximum strength and durability. We have also developed proprietary brackets for mounting to walls of concrete masonry or other substrates, as well as walls with wood blocking.

3-Wall System (Built-In)

A concrete wall mounted sink that nestles into three walls creates a built-in, recessed look. It also provides two extra walls for support brackets, thus a stronger and more durable method of installation. It uses the same installation methods as mentioned above but the process is repeated for the two additional walls.

Concrete Wall-Mounted Sink Trends

The malleability of concrete affords myriad shapes, sizes, colors, and styles. The sky is really the limit when it comes to concrete. It also allows for customization of all kinds from embosing to alternative finishes.

Some of the hottest trends in floating sinks include:

Bold, Fresh Colors

Trueform can match any Benjamin Moore paint color in concrete. Though these don’t come standard, color is one of the most frequently requested customizations

Shapes

Wild shapes and designs in concrete wall-mounted sinks can range from a replica of a topographical map of a canyon to a hand-hewn wood basin and everything in between. If you can imagine it, Trueform artisans will do their best to bring your vision to life. Simply talk with our team to discuss your ideas.

Shallow Basins

Another favorite is the shallow basin concrete floating sink. Wider and shallower, these sinks are ultra contemporary in style and can set the tone for your bathroom design. Most standard shallow sinks are five to eight inches deep. With concrete you could make it even shallower.

Infinity Sinks

Like the shallow sink basin, the infinity sink aims to decrease the depth of the basin, sometimes to nothing. Instead, these focus on a drain that goes all the way around the sink keeping water where it belongs without having any basin at all.

As we conclude our exploration of concrete floating sinks, it is evident that these fixtures represent more than just a functional element in a bathroom—they are a statement of modern design innovation. Their ability to seamlessly blend style with practicality, while also maximizing space and durability, makes them a compelling choice for those seeking to elevate their bathroom aesthetics.

Whether in residential homes, luxury hotels, or avant-garde commercial spaces, concrete floating sinks stand as a testament to the ongoing evolution of interior design. As we look to the future, it's clear that these versatile fixtures will continue to inspire creativity and redefine the boundaries of contemporary bathroom design.
