Vessel sinks in general are quite popular when it comes to remodeling bathrooms. While there are porcelain vessel sinks that match those antique tubs and also granite vessel sinks, I bet you are going to want a natural stone vessel sink by the time you finish reading this article. I’m going to paint a picture for you of sorts with words, and let’s see what you end up choosing.
First of all, if you look at many of the natural stone sinks, you will see examples that look more uniform, like marble or granite. Hey, those are very nice, too, and in many cases, preferred my homeowners. However, for the best example of a high-quality natural stone sink, I implore you to use hand-carved when searching or similar keywords. Look at the difference in what you find.
What you will see is a one-of-a-kind stone vessel sink that makes you almost think of perhaps a garden fountain. Now imagine some type of ivy growing in your bathroom and other decor, perhaps a ceramic frog of some kind. Imagine a stone tile stand-in shower, too. As for the ivy and the frog, that’s just one idea, but once you see the stone vessel sinks that are ‘all-natural,’ a garden scene starts to paint itself in your head.
Now you don’t necessarily want to bring the entire garden indoors, but natural stones to me make me think of living plants. Depending on the size of your bathroom, you could put one, two, perhaps even three plants in there. That’s almost enough to make you want to opt for the tub with the shower so you can light a candle and take that long-awaited bubble bath.
Naturally, a stone vessel sink is a sink, not everything described above, but that’s the point. What you choose when it comes to purchases like these should mesh with the rest of your decor. Don’t just choose something, and in fact, don’t just choose something because you like it either. Paint that picture in your head like I just did.
A natural stone vessel sink in a bathroom almost sounds magical to me. For sure, it would be my top choice. However, I could paint a picture for you with an antique porcelain vessel sink or a granite or marble vessel sink, too. It’s all in what you want. So which is it going to be for your bathroom?
