All about Vessel Sinks

Perched atop the bathroom counter, a vessel sink offers a stunning focal point in contemporary washroom design. From perfectly rounded bowls and sleek rectangular sinks, through to asymmetrical basins and delicate oval styles: there’s a vessel sink to complement bathrooms of all aesthetics. 

Vessel sinks don’t just look gorgeous – they’re super simple to install and space saving alternatives to traditional washbasins. If you’re planning on adding a touch of luxury to your bathroom, then a vessel sink might just be the most chic and easy way to do so! 

What is a vessel sink?

Vessel sinks sit on top of the countertop or vanity. Best suited to washrooms, they’re often small to medium sized basins that aren’t pre-fitted with faucets. Typically, faucets are placed anywhere around the perimeter of the sink, either fitted into the countertop or into the wall. In order to avoid splashback and spillages, it’s important to consider the placement of the faucet in relation to the vessel sink, ensuring that the spout is directly over the drain or center of the sink. 

The benefits 

Vessel sinks are decorative design pieces that add character and style to modern bathroom design. But there are a whole host of benefits that come with installing a vessel sink.

Simple to install: Recessed sinks are costly and cumbersome. Vessel sinks eliminate the need to cut out space for large sinks – all they require is a small hole for the drain to fit! 

Style options: Guaranteed to catch attention, vessel sinks come in a huge range of shapes and styles, so you’ll find something to blend cohesively and elevate your existing design scheme.

Space saving: Vessel sinks typically occupy less space than recessed or pedestal sinks. This frees up space on your vanity for all those essentials that you need to keep on display or close to hand.
