Vessel Sinks: Sinks are the basic requirement for any bathroom and are available in a number of designs and materials. Sinks that are basic and functional are perfect for a classic bathroom. While elaborate designs and glossy sinks are a perfect fit for luxurious bathrooms. It is important to coordinate the bathroom vanities to achieve a pulled together, well designed look for the bathroom. Sinks can be sleek and transparent, made out of glass, and come in multiple shades to suit the color scheme. Ceramic sinks can come in a number of different textures and designs as well. Sinks can be mounted on top of the pedestals or vanities to make them more functional and add element of storage on to the bathroom.
Bathroom Vanity Sink Style. One specific feature of a bathroom vanity is the sink. Most vanities have a sink built into the top portion. Each vanity incorporates a sink differently. Some are submerged/sunk into the top of the vanity while others are designed for vessel sinks (sinks that rest on the top surface). Vessel sinks are the newest style of bathroom sink that is quickly becoming popular in homes. These sinks have a more modern look and subsequently are incorporated into modern bathroom vanities. When shopping for a new bathroom vanity, you need to ask yourself what type of sink you want. A very modern vanity might not be able to handle a submerged/sunk in sink.
Finally, for the ultra custom look is the artistic or decorative bathroom vanity. This type of vanity is a cross between a furniture vanity and a piece of art. They offer the style and detailing of furniture, with the artistic touches of a piece of art. For the homeowner that truly wants to make a statement with their bathroom design, or even make it a centerpiece of the house, the artistic bathroom vanity is the ultimate choice. However, this type of high design comes at a price... with most vanities starting at $1,000 and going up from there, this is no small investment. The really nice thing about the handful of companies that are selling them, is that they come as a complete kit with the vanity top, sink bowl, and matching mirror included. There are not a lot of manufacturers out there, so if you are looking for a decorative bathroom vanity, be prepared to surf the web.
Something that has become more popular in recent years with people trying to create a more custom look in their bathroom is what they call a bathroom furniture vanity. It is called a furniture vanity, because people were literally taking antique furniture and retro-fitting them to accommodate plumbing and a sink. Because of the demand for this type of vanity, manufacturers finally started creating vanities that look like antique pieces of furniture. You will find this type of vanity in a lot of the higher end homes that want to keep the custom look of the house flowing into the bathroom. The possibilities are endless when it comes to furniture vanities, and the prices can range from a couple hundred up to a couple thousand. This is a great look if you have the big budget required to have your bathroom look as nice as the vanity does!
