When I sometimes look at vessel sink vanities, I can’t help it and I remember back when a sink used to be just a place to wash your hands. A time when vessel sinks didn’t exist and we never related a sink with interior design or decoration. Times have really changed though. Today, one can find vessel sink vanities that look so good and can transform the overall look of a bathroom instantly.
The funny thing when I think about it is that vessel sinks used to exists in prehistoric times. If you think about it, the only purpose of a sink is to gather all the water that falls in them, and I am sure that back when the first sinks where invented they didn’t have the technology to shape them into the bowl like sinks we see today. As such, it makes logical sense that they used some sort of a vessel instead. Today, many years after we have perfected the art, we see many designers turning back in time and into bathroom vessel sinks again. The reasoning behind that trend is very simple as it lies upon the fact that we like to see new trends and we get easily bored.
I mean, can you compare the looks of those bathroom vessel sink vanities with any classic bathroom vanities? I know I can’t. It seems as if those bathroom vessel sinks are in a whole different league. The only problem of course is that they are not as practical. The more bowl like a sink is, the more the water will stay in it and vessels tend to be less bowl like than other sinks. Then again, there is a fine line to balance practicability and visual appeal. My wife and I are currently considering two bathroom vessel sink vanities and we are having a really hard time deciding on one.
We found one of them in one of those stores that offer discount bathroom vanities and it comes with plenty of storage space and two small bathroom sinks on top. My wife is in love with this double sink bathroom vanity but I am obsessed with glass vessel sinks which brings us to the second one. Imagine one of those cool looking vessel faucets coming out of the wall and right below it one of those red glass vessel bathroom sinks. That’s what I call eye candy, but my wife calls it expensive. She believes that all those contemporary bathroom vanities are just a waste of money and she would much rather get the cheap bathroom vanity instead.
The truth is that when it comes to vessel sink vanities, you have to invest some more money in order to get a quality vanity sinks that will last. Otherwise, you will just end up spending money for something that will most likely end up in a storage room a few months later. My recommendation is that the next time you are shopping for vessel sink vanities, you try and do your research and try to balance cost, quality, and practicability. That’s a recipe that always results into great bathroom vanities that will please you and the rest of them family!
