Did you know that a cool bathroom sink design could improve hand washing? We’re kidding…this isn’t proven, but the thought is interesting to consider when you look back at how often you washed your hands or were willing to wash your hands when a nice sink was involved.
A cool sink design in a bathroom may or may not increase the fun behind hand washing (we think it does but we’re plumbers, not scientists). Nonetheless, we’re all currently experiencing a pandemic that recommends frequent hand washing, so as plumbing people it only makes sense for us to showcase some of the world’s coolest bathroom sink designs.
We’ve all had those moments when we’re visiting a friend or a family member and we’re using the bathroom when it dons on us — this is a really cool sink that I’m using right now. Hey, it’s happened to all of us at least once. Whether it’s the actual design of the sink or how the sink functions that makes it unique, we’re interested!
Why do we love the bathroom so much? Well, it helps that it’s the one room in our home that provides us with comfort, cleanliness, and relief in one place! From having a singing competition with ourselves in the shower to browsing the internet on the toilet, the bathroom, though loved, admittedly might not receive the attention it deserves. A popular mentality regarding the bathroom is likely: If it gets the job done, we’re satisfied. However, we believe it’s a plus when something can get the job done with style.
The Sink that’s Above it All: Unique Vessel Sink Designs
A vessel sink is designed to sit on top of the counter top, similar to how a bowl sits on top of a table. The bottom of the sink is often flush with the counter top, but it can sometimes be sunk an inch or two beneath the surface depending on personal preference.

Sinks…Off the Wall: Creative Wall-Mounted Sinks
A wall-mounted sink is a type of sink that requires no vanity and can be installed directly on the wall. This design is great for bathrooms with minimal space or for people who want more open space. A console sink also falls into this category, being a wall-mounted sink that has the addition of two or four extra legs.

It’s perfectly functional and easy to “assemble” as long as you have a wall. It comes as a ceramic one-piece that’s ready to be mounted to the wall. All you have to do is choose the perfect faucet, install it, and enjoy the waterfall.

With a wonderfully luxurious feel and zero floor space needed, this sink artfully arranges the necessary components while still maintaining an aesthetic appeal. And don’t worry about where to hang the drying towel; this sink features a compartment on the bottom front of the “vanity” that acts as a towel bar. It’s available in both beige and white, so buy both for the master bathroom and guest bathroom, or both for yourself!
