Do Bathroom Vanities Come With Sinks And Faucets?

Are you searching for a bathroom vanity with a sink and a faucet? You might be able to find one. However, it might take a little more time and effort to look around.

Bathroom vanities frequently include sinks but infrequently include faucets. An alternative is a vanity set with holes for a broad (3-piece) or center set (1-piece) faucet. Some bathroom vanity sets come with cabinet handles, a mirror, and a backsplash in addition to sinks. It just depends on the brand and style of the vanity.

Let’s look at what your bathroom vanity set will include and how you may assemble a vanity if you already have some parts.

What Types of Sinks Come With a Bathroom Vanity?

A bathroom vanity set typically consists of a sink, or two sinks for a double vanity, together with a countertop and cupboards.

The following sink varieties could come with a bathroom vanity set:

Integrated Sink

The bathroom vanity countertop is made of the same material as the integrated sink. Typically, there is no distinction between the material used for the countertop and the sink basin because they are cut from the same slab.

Undermount Sink

A different sheet of material than the countertop is typically used to create the under-mount sink. It is embedded from below into the vanity.

Drop-In Sink

A drop-in sink basin lies below the top of the bathroom vanity. The sink rim that sits on top of the vanity countertop, providing the drop-in sink with more ornamental flair, distinguishes it from an undermount sink.

Vessel Sink

The vessel sink is ultra-modern, sits atop the vanity, and is available in a wide range of materials. The vessel sink is frequently the most eye-catching of the three.

Do I Need to Purchase a Faucet Separate from my Vanity?

Most likely, a bathroom vanity faucet will need to be purchased separately. You might be curious as to why. Many people choose to get faucets that match for their sinks, showers, and bathtubs.

Additionally, there is a huge variety of faucet styles and materials available, including, but not limited to, deck-mounted, floor-mounted, wall-mounted, roman, waterfall, vintage, chrome, polished nickel, and oiled bronze. There are countless options.

Bathroom Vanity Bases and Tops

You should type “bathroom vanity base” into your search engine if you are only looking for the bathroom vanity cabinets and not the countertop.

Perhaps, though, you already own the cabinets. Or perhaps you want to use a dresser or other piece of furniture differently. All that is left is the counter. You should enter “bathroom vanity tops” into your search engine.

You may be asking what the finest bathroom vanity countertop material is if you require a complete vanity set or just the top. In this piece, Quartz, Granite, or Marble for Bathroom Vanities: Which Is Best? I go into great detail.

Without giving away the ending, there is a clear decision, so read the post so you can decide exactly what supplies to buy and why.

Types of Bathroom Vanities That Come with Sinks

Bathroom vanities come in a few different main categories. Any of these bathroom vanities that include a sink are available.

All will be offered as single or double vanities, except for the corner-mounted vanity. (Single vanities will have one sink, double vanities will have two.)

Bathroom Vanity Cabinet

The cabinet doors on this vanity are pull-out style, and it may also fit between two side walls and will be flush against the back wall.

Freestanding Bathroom Vanity

Despite being referred to as freestanding, this style of bathroom vanity is really attached to one plumbing wall.

It typically has the appearance of a standalone piece of furniture, adding elegance to the room and enlarging a small bathroom.

Wall-Mounted (aka ‘floating’) Bathroom Vanity

Bathroom vanities that are installed on the wall float above the ground rather than touching it. They attach to the plumbing wall and are particularly beneficial for people who are shorter or taller than typical because you may customize the sink height.

Bathroom Vanity Sets Might Include Add-Ons

The accessories that come with your bathroom vanity might range widely. A bathroom vanity set always contains the cabinet, countertop, and typically the sink as was already said. There might also be further add-ons.

Bathroom Vanity Backsplash

Many bathroom vanity sets come with an integrated backsplash. The backsplash that comes with a bathroom vanity is typically 4 inches long and constructed of the same material as the countertop.

The backsplash’s primary function is to stop water from penetrating the wall directly behind the sink. If that were to happen, you run the risk of mold and mildew developing in the bathroom. Dripping drywall will eventually decay as well.

But there are a lot of possibilities for a more personalized appearance:

Change the backsplash that came with your vanity set with a taller slab of coordinating material that you would have to buy separately. Do you have any leftover countertop material from a previous or current kitchen makeover that might be used in the restroom?

Alternatively, rather than using the normal 4-inch piece of material included with your set, think about using a window or a mirror as a backsplash behind the vanity.

The fact remains that a backsplash is nearly always necessary if you want to give your bathroom vanity a more premium appearance.

Vanity Mirrors

Mirrors that match the cabinetry are included in some bathroom vanity sets. These sets might save you a ton of time and effort when looking for the right match. Mirrors that go well with a double vanity set are frequently available.

Mirrored bathroom vanity sets are frequently able to quickly complete the design of a bathroom that requires new decor.

If you don’t intend to use the included mirrors, you might want to think about obtaining a different bathroom vanity altogether to avoid paying for something you won’t use because mirrors can be rather expensive.

Alternatively, if you don’t want to utilize the included mirrors in the bathroom, think about other possible uses for them around your house. These mirrors frequently look great in a mudroom, foyer, or even a bedroom that’s next to the bathroom with the vanity.

Plumbing Hardware

Plumbing hardware is included in some bathroom vanities. To find out if a drain assembly and P-trap are included, check the product specifications.

Drain Assembly

Some vanity sets for bathrooms have a drain assembly. Along with the drain tube, the drain assembly also comprises a stopper.

Consider the faucet on your sink. Typically, you can pull it up or push it down. The drain at the base of the sink rises when you pull it up, clogging the sink. This ball-and-rod device is a part of the drain assembly. Water runs from the sink to the drain tube, which is also a component of the drain assembly, when you open the drain.


The drain assembly joins the P-Trap and sink. According to, a P-trap is as follows:

“To stop sewage gases from entering the house through the drain, a p-trap traps water. Additionally, it collects debris that has drained from the sink to stop clogging of the plumbing system.

You’re in luck if the drain assembly and p-trap are included. If not, any hardware store should have these in stock.

Other Add-Ons

You might even strike it fortunate and get a bathroom vanity set with mounting brackets, sidesplash, or even cabinet knobs. Additionally, if you look hard enough, you can locate a vanity that includes a faucet.

Bathroom Vanity Sets Can Be Expensive

You already know that the bathroom vanity might be one of the more expensive components of your project if you’re currently remodeling a bathroom. But it’s not necessary to be.

With a bit of creativity, you may modify the bathroom vanity to increase the unique appeal of your bathroom while also saving (significant!) money.

In reality, there are a ton of designer tips for anything from tubs and tile to bathroom vanities. On your remodel, these can help you save a lot of money.
