Bathroom sinks need to be functional there is no doubt about that. Bathroom sinks can be also be beautiful and almost sculptural unlike kitchen sinks that must fit pots and pans. Bathroom sinks, especially in powder rooms, can be unusual sizes and shapes while still being functional, as we need them. The wide variety of bathroom sinks available on the market today is testament to the desire to have something beautiful and functional in the bathroom.
Depending on the square footage and floor plan of your bathroom you may opt for a pedestal sink, wall mounted sink, or sink and vanity combination. A bathroom sink with vanity is the classic set up for the bathroom. This doesn’t mean that this combination is dull and boring. Vessel sinks continue to be a popular option for the bathroom sink. Having a vessel sink can shrink the size of the vanity, or create more counter space.
Other popular sink options are to have the sink and counter be of the same solid surface. As seen in this bathroom sink, continuing the same material from backsplash to counter and even the sink creates a seamless design. Since all of these elements are stone, you could continue the stone onto the floor for a cohesive overall room design.
Bathroom sinks can be stone, metal, ceramic or glass. The shape and form of the sink are only limited by your design imagination and the space allocated for the sink. Choose the right sink for your style and bathroom needs for the best results.
