Some people think that if they’ve seen one bathroom sink they’ve seen them all. However, bathroom vessel sinks are quickly proving this sentiment wrong. While the kitchen may top the list of most popular and most likely room in the home to be renovated, following a close second is usually the bathroom.
While the function of a standard bathroom, a half bath or a master bathroom is important, the style of the bathroom is also extremely important to homeowners. This preoccupation with style is why vessel sinks and not standard bathroom sinks are so popular these days.
Many homeowners and interior designers feel that vessel sinks look better than other alternatives. Given that the bathroom is primarily a utilitarian room, finding any room for style is well received by homeowners. A vessel sink does just that.
The look of a wash bowl sitting on top of a bathroom vanity, whether that sink is circular or square, or it’s made of porcelain, metal or even glass, it is a look that can do wonders for the aesthetics of a renovated bathroom.
Increased Storage Space
While it may not be a big deal for larger bathroom spaces, for a small bathroom where storage is at a premium, a vessel sink may offer more storage space. A standard vanity will only offer limited storage, mainly because a standard sink takes up so much space.
However, with a vessel sink, less space under the vanity is needed. There is no hanging sink bowl and only a small drainage pipe. This may only be a small increase in storage, but for the storage limited bathroom, any extra storage space is a good thing.
While style often drives the decision on choosing a vessel sink, extra storage is also a significant benefit as well. However, whatever your motivation for choosing a vessel sink, it will be important to choose the right unit.
Sometimes the sink dictates the vanity and other times, it’s the other way around. The great thing is there are a lot of options for vessel sinks in all different shapes, sizes, and materials. What that means for you is the perfect vessel sink is out there. It just may require a bit of searching to uncover it.
