Cindy wrote a comprehensive article on the types of materials kitchen sinks can be made of complete with all the pros and cons. (read it here) I want to add my two cents and showcase vessel sinks. I think of them as works of art for the bathroom – I’ll bet you had no idea of the beautiful and unusual options available.
Sometimes you want a simple vanity so the sink is the star. Sometimes you want them to work together to be stunning and make a huge statement.
These sinks are meant to be used as show stoppers. You can keep the countertop and wall treatment behind the sink simple allowing the striking sink to shine. Almost equally as important as the sink is the selection of the faucet. Make sure it’s compatible in style with the sink and completes the overall look. Deck mounted (from the countertop) will need a long neck to provide adequate function. A wall mounted fixture needs to extend far enough from the wall to reach the center of the sink.
Do You Have A Vessel Sink?
Have you embraced the use of a vessel sink? What room is it in? Do you like it’s function or find it difficult to clean or use?
