Make It Pop
"With its vibrant colors and playful design, the sink, which was created in Mexico, reflects an influence of Spanish design," says designer Tatiana Machado-Rosas of Jackson Design and Remodeling. "The sink is intended as the focal point in the room, so the rest of the space was kept in neutral tones to make the visual impression of the sink even more dramatic," Tatiana says.
"The brushed-nickel fixtures were selected in a simple, stylish, easy-to-clean design that would not distract from the sink’s visual impact."
Round It Out
A bulbous sink is a surprisingly elegant and artful choice that gives a unique vibe to this California bathroom. Wall-mounted faucet and taps are understated and contemporary, providing a sleek counterpart to the rounded, sculptural vessel sink.
A Metallic Moment
This neutral bathroom is sparked with silver-toned accents for a luxe touch. The shining silver vessel sink boasts a pretty pattern that adds interest and dimension, while the shapely faucet lends distinctive appeal. The brushed silver mirror and sconces allow the sink to really shine.
Fit for a Kid
When working with this small bathroom for two children, Rob Glisson of Rojo Architecture decided to forgo a space-sucking vanity countertop for these modern metal console sinks that are topped off in playful blue glass.
"This worked perfectly in the white-tiled bathroom and [along with yellow walls] provided a punch of color. The faucet was a nice and simple faucet with a blue ball on the handle. This had a very playful look and went nicely with the sink glass top," Rob says.
Off-Center & on Point
"Clean, contemporary, timeless and functional were the objectives for this master bath," says designer Elizabeth Bomberger of Life Well Lived.
"Everything in the space is slightly off center, but in a very calculated way," Elizabeth says. "The mirror splits open at the same ratio that the contrasting-sized doors on the vanity open. And the two sink faucet handles are both to the right side of the faucet, yet the faucet is still centered on the [slope-integrated] sink. The unusual proportions were created as yet another way to add interest, but through a very subtle, refined application."
Serene in Stone
With a stunning view of the Puget Sound, this bathroom has a calm, serene feel. The custom stone sink features a hidden drain, and minimalistic faucets work to keep the overall look balanced, cohesive and contemporary.
The Flip Side
We don't often think of what's going on on the underside of the sink. This color-dipped sink shows how a bright pop where you least expect it can be the perfect touch in a small bathrooom made for two.
Warm It Up
"To start, we didn’t just use a typical vanity," says designer Andrea Schumacher. "We found a dresser we loved and altered it to have a hammered-copper vessel sink and added our own special hardware."
"We were going for 'Mountain Modern' and achieved that by warmth in material choices," Andrea says.
"I felt that a traditional cabinet vanity would have been too much wood in the space," says designer Shane Inman. "I have always adored pedestal sinks, and this one had great stylized legs that accentuated the overall design."
"The fixtures were all selected for their oil-rubbed bronze finish, and all were in unison with the square design that was implemented," Shane says. "When shopping for fixtures, keep in mind that not only are they beautiful to look at, they are also very functional in our everyday lives. I look for brands that have a reputation of performance, durability and customer service."
To create enough space in this small bathroom to have the luxury of two sinks, the designers positioned square marble sinks on either side of the vanity, with the tall faucets to the side. The overall effect is contemporary and oh-so chic.
"The idea of three sinks in one stylish trough makes this design unique, creative and functional," says designer Kirsten Becker. "The client had three teenage daughters and wanted them to learn to share while still enjoying their individual use."
"Troughs are often simply hung on the wall for a clean and simple look, but for this high-use space, the custom shelf behind the sink and wash stand below offered storage and practical function," Kirsten says.
With tons of texture and the feel of movement provided by the wavy pattern on the wall, a curvy black sink simply flowed perfectly with the design aesthetic. The mirroring of the wave detail created cohesion in this "under-the-sea," ethereal bathroom. A tall, side-positioned faucet allows the sink to be the star, while freeing up precious countertop space.
Ramp Up Style
A mix of natural stone and industrial metals comes together to create a unique guest bathroom design that's a real showpiece in the home. The concrete ramp sink is an edgy, artful choice, while the bridge-style faucet fits in perfectly with the contemporary, industrial feel.
Awash With Color
Kids are sure to be happy to wash up and brush their teeth in a bathroom that features a showstopping neon green sink. Clean white subway tiles all around make this artsy, unusual pedestal style a true standout in the space. The clean-lined faucet is fun and functional without taking away from the room's true star!
A Modern Oasis
We love how the oversized glass basin sinks are in a nearly transparent shade of icy blue with a unique texture, redolent of tropical waters. Complete with sleek stainless faucets, these inviting sinks become the show pieces in this modern guest bathroom.
One of the most inventive sinks we've seen and the focal point of this bathroom is a sculptural design that sends water down a curved, slide-like structure directly into the shower drain. This waterfall-like sink is a functional work of art and a definite "wow" moment in this bathroom.
A pair of tall, oval-shaped pedestal sinks rounds out this beautiful, pared-down master bathroom. Black gooseneck faucets are the finishing touches in the stark, yet inviting, modern space.
The undeniable focal point in this Asian-style bathroom is a stunning arced onyx vessel sink with in-wall golden fixtures. Overhead pendant lights play off the marbled stone, making it appear to glow.
Doing Double Duty
"This space is special because it is a guest bathroom [with a farmhouse sink that doubles as] the laundry room's soaking sink," says designer Christina Tello. "It needed to do double duty of being elegant for their guests but functional for their laundry."
Both the apron-front sink and faucet "are considered kitchen fixtures, but worked nicely for a more impressive bathroom arrangement," Christina says.
A Fresh Spin
This angular white pedestal sink is a strong feature against the metallic houndstooth wall in this stylish bathroom created for the home of two DJs. "It perfectly fit in with the couple's lifestyle," says designer Vanessa Deleon, with the overall design having a "lounge club vibe."
