Vessel sinks can be the most striking feature in a bathroom, adding style and value to any bath space.

Defined as free-standing sink basins that sit on top of sink consoles or countertops, vessel sinks are available in a wide range of materials, colors and prices.

In general, vessel sinks require either a wall-mounted or otherwise free-standing sink faucet; they rarely feature an attached faucet. This means that you'll need to be particularly careful in measuring the location of the sink basin, drain and faucet, so that everything lines up perfectly.

In terms of materials, vessel sinks run the gamut from simple, affordable porcelain models to intricately shaped metals like copper and bronze. Glass vessel sinks can be extremely attractive, but they're also quite expensive, and durability can be a concern.

Style-wise, vessel sinks tend to reflect a more modern or contemporary look, as opposed to more traditional drop-in or pedestal sinks. This doesn't mean they can't pair with other style elements that are more traditional, however—an eclectic mix of styles can often create visual diversity and interest in a bath space.
