Bathroom Sinks: From Vessels to PedestalsBy
When remodeling a bathroom, the Professor must confess that selecting a bathroom sink is challenging. Such a dizzying array of shapes, styles, materials, and configurations. Undermount or drop in? Bathroom sink vanity, pedestal, or wallmount? Does a striking vessel sink fit in? If you are overwhelmed by a bathroom remodeling project, the Professor hopes that this guide to bathroom sink trends will help you find your way.
If your bathroom has plenty of space for storage elsewhere, a pedestal sink is a great way to make a powerful design statement. Whether the pedestal is modern with clean lines, or more traditional and elegantly detailed, make sure you choose a sink that is the right height for you. The Professor also recommends choosing a pedestal sink (or vanity) that is at least 27″ tall if the bathroom will be used primarily by adults.
Undermount sinks are a sleek look, and so very easy to keep clean. Sweep the counter and done. Marvelous. The Professor finds the Porcher Marquee collection to be particularly stylish, as the base of the sinks feature distinctive, jewel-inspired faceting.
Stainless steel in the bathroom? Great contemporary feel. Try the American Standard Prevoir Collection of stainless steel bathroom sinks, which use stainless steel in a new and unexpected way.
Above counter basins, or vessel sinks are available in every material from stone to ceramics to transparent glass. Consider these sinks for your show-off powder room. Vessel sinks can be found in bold, modern shapes as well as classic wash basin designs that match beautifully with more traditional bathrooms.
