Vessel bathroom sinks sit on top of the counter instead of being sunk under the counter like traditional sinks. This is a modern, cutting edge trend. However, with a little innovation you can make your investment last and coordinate with a lot of different design styles. Here are some tips for using vessel sinks as the focal point of your room and the inspiration piece of your design.
Use the vessel sink to bring in color. You might want to go with neutral tile, toilets and flooring. This makes the most of your investment simply because when you go to resell your house, home buyers will relate better to basic colors. You can use a vessel sink as a way to get your favorite color in the room without making a costly error. Still, you’ll probably have this sink for a few years so go with a color that you really love.
You want to make sure that you invest wisely in a vessel sink. Sure, you might think that you just have to have the latest trends. This is an actual bathroom fixture, it’s not as easy as changing a pair of blue jeans. If you do want to change out your bathroom a lot then just spend less money on the sink. This way you’ll have money left over when you want to change it out or you get sick of it. Glass vessel sinks are typically a lot cheaper than copper or stone.
Get your vanity in on the act. Once you change out your sink and countertop your old vanity might look a little shabby. Vanities are expensive. You can try using a piece of furniture as long as it’s the right height to save money and get a one of a kind look. Refinishing the wood with a dark espresso or ebony stain will update it and give it a contemporary feel.
Vessel sinks come in all different designs. For instance, you can have your choice of blue sinks. For an elegant bathroom that has the feeling of a high end hotel suite then go with a granite. If you want a traditional bathroom with a modern edge then find one that looks like a china bowl. If modern or contemporary bathroom decor is your thing then find a vibrant blue or one that looks like frosted glass.
Whether you choose a glass, stone or copper vessel sink it will definitely get noticed. This will be the “wow factor” in your room that all of your guests comment on. It’s also a relatively inexpensive update that will really give your room a designer high end touch.
