The Mr. Direct U1611 Undermount Porcelain Bathroom Sink looks fantastic and will easily fit into your bathroom decor. Because of its size it won’t do well in smaller bathrooms as it will probably overshadow everything else.

Why We Like It – MR Direct U1611 W Undermount Porcelain

The Mr. Direct U1611 White Porcelain Undermount Sink features a variety of finishes not normally found in undermount sinks. It’s large and deep enough to wash your hair inside of (if you feel so inclined to do so), and the True Vitreous China material it’s constructed with is durable, glossy, and extra resistant to abuse.

Pros
  • Easy to clean
  • Beautiful, contemporary styling
  • Affordable
Cons
  • Doesn’t include a pop-up drain
  • Not very ideal for smaller bathrooms

Performance

The Mr. Direct U1611 W Pud isn’t just a porcelain sink, it’s a true vitreous china sink. It’s surface is more resistant and sanitary thanks to the addition of a special enamel coating. It’s also easier to clean with just a touch of mild chlorine bleach and water. You can also check out the KINGO HOME Counter Porcelain Bathroom for a similar resilient sink made from non-porous materials. However, the Mr. Direct U1611-W Bathroom Sink does not include a pop-up drain.

Design

Mr. Direct Rectangular Porcelain Sinks dimensions measure 18 ¼” x 13″ x 7 ⅞” which means it requires a 21” minimum cabinet size. While this may not be ideal for smaller bathrooms, it does wonders for larger ones. With contemporary styling, this sink model features and undermount installation with a deep, arched interior and a very discreet overflow for safe filling. If you prefer something in more of a farmhouse style and don’t mind that it’s above the sink, consider the VCCUCINE Rectangle Counter Porcelain Bathroom.

Value

This porcelain beauty comes in a variety of finishes, namely white, brushed nickel, and antique bronze. You don’t see this much with bathroom sinks, especially not undermount ones, so it’s nice they include it here. It’s also affordable, retailing for $51.00 over on Amazon for the white version. With a basin that is triple resilient to chips, scratches, and staining, this price is more than fair. But you can also check out another affordable option, the Tempered Vessel Bathroom Vanity Frosted, if you’re so inclined to seek out bargains.

MR Direct U1611 W Undermount Porcelain Wrap Up

While it may not be ideal that the sink doesn’t come with a pop-up drain, the money you save should be enough to be able to purchase one separately if you want one. Other than that, the sink is beautiful, easy to clean, and has a variety of finishes to complement any bathroom.
