Modern Bathroom Sink
Bathrooms were once practical rooms where one would clean up, use the toilet and leave.
Modern bathrooms look nothing like they did 20 years ago. Take the bathroom sink, for instance. Today’s modern
bathroom sinks come in hundreds of styles, colors, textures, sizes, and materials. You can create a work of art

Materials used for vessel sinks can be copper, bronze, steel, ceramic, glass, marble, and
stone. The most popular vessel sinks are glass and stone, but marble and ceramic are also desired. They can be
smooth, hammered, textured or imprinted with designs, if you so desire.
Glass sinks are highly desirable since they can be custom made and add an artistic flare

customer may design their sink to be made with their own painting. The manufacturer can imprint their design or
have a craftsman paint it right on the glass sink.
Stone vessel sinks such as granite and marble, are a favorite among those remodeling their

same material. It makes it a more uniform look. Stone is more durable and gives tremendous value to the home when
