I will be the first to praise how great bathroom vessel sinks look because I was the first to question them when my wife decided to install a vessel sink vanity in our bathroom. Don’t get me wrong, I always thought that bathroom vessel sink vanities look great, but other than their great looks, I never thought that vessel bathroom sinks where actually useful until I actually had to use one.
My wife, who happens to be an interior designer, decided to buy two bathroom vessel sinks and faucets for our two baths. We were planning to buy one of those big glass vessel sinks for our main bathroom, and she wanted one of those cheaper small vessel sinks for the second bathroom in our guest house. I thought that so far so good, until she started showing me some bathroom vessel sink faucets and they all looked weird. She had locked her eyes on one of those faucets for vessel sinks that look like waterfalls and while I thought that they would work, I soon realized that when it comes to such bathroom vessel sinks cheap was not part of the equation.
I guess that since most long lasting and beautiful bathroom vanities are not really cheap, I should expect that a bathroom vessel sink vanity would not be cheap either, but I was hoping that since she is in the industry, she would have something up her sleeve. Well, she did. She has a lot of contacts for bathroom furniture and they were all ready to give her a discount in order to get some business from her now and in the future. She knew exactly where to find discount vessel sinks, but she first wanted to look at all the bathroom vessel sinks that were popular to get an idea about the different styles and qualities.
We ended up getting a glass vessel bathroom sink that was made out of red glass and had some black ribbons engraved around it for our main bath. We went through so many bathroom vessel sinks and vanities before we decided to go with this one, and the choice was really hard. That mixture of red and black made all the other bathroom sinks seem so boring. To top everything off, it comes with a choice of two equally beautiful bathroom vanities! All vessel glass sinks look great, but those that combine more than one color are simply stunning.
For our second bath, we were in between of granite and ceramic bathroom sinks because I thought that they were cheaper, but my wife told me that granite is not cheap. And as for the brand, we were set with Kohler vessel sinks because they are known for their quality.
I guess that’s all I wanted to say. I am now a big fan of vessel bathroom sinks and I would recommend them to anyone. They don’t only look great, but they are also very practical. And when you get to combine those two you almost always get a great result!
