What do you mean?

Are you saying you want to abandon the floor drain and raise the floor around the drain to make the floor level?:)

Floor drain

No we'll keep the floor drain but we would like to put a little sink in but with the floor not level it would be difficult to place one in the area where the floor drain is

O-k-a-a-a-a-a-y! Ah, uhm, ah, I sense a contradiction here.:yes:

How about a wall hung sink? Do you want a sink? Would you like a sink? What color is your automobile?:)

The floor drain is only for overflow in case of flooding so putting in a sink is a separate issue ie: the sink drain will be plumbed into the sewer line, not the floor drain.

You can level the floor around the drain with mapei tri/patch or equivalant but first increase the height of the drain by glueing on an extension pipe so you have something to level to and a proper opening to place in a cover (never know when you want access to the drain)

*note, if this is the only drain then any flooding will cause both greater damage and could place into question insurance coverage......
