We just received a very large donation of beautiful marble/natural stone vessel sinks- they’re available at both Mission Valley and Escondido ReStores. For the bargain price of $100, you can snag one of these lovely sinks and upgrade to that dream bathroom you’ve been dreaming about!
Vessel sinks are a simple way to add a touch of elegance and sophistication to your bathroom. Attention is drawn to the architecture of the round bowl that rests atop a freestanding cabinet, and makes for a lovely centerpiece for the room. When determining whether a vessel sink is right for you, consider these couple of points.
1) Usage of the sink
Vessel sinks are usually not very deep, and will splash water easily because of the shallow bowl. If you plan on installing one in the master bedroom or a family room, consider what it’ll be used for. A larger and deeper bowl is more practical for things like washing your hair, hand washing diapers, or rinsing out little kids toys. However, if you plan on using your sink for light activities like hand washing, then a vessel sink could very well be a great option for you.
Vessel sinks require more maintenance than regular sinks because of the curved nature of the bowl. There is more surface to clean- both the inside and outside of the bowl, the counter space underneath the curve of the bowl, etc. Because the bowl is shallow, water is also likely to splash out of the sink. You know those water splashes you find yourself cleaning every morning after you hastily brush your teeth and wash your face? Be prepared to wipe up even more excess water splashes!
3) Creativity in Display
If you are big on interior design, a vessel sink is great because it allows you to creatively display the sink on any vanity/piece of furniture you want. This is ideal if you want to achieve a shabby chic or farmhouse look because you can utilize vintage dressers, rustic side tables, cabinets etc.
There are dozens of different looks you can achieve with a vessel sink. Here are some of our favorites!
