I think this trend exploded in the eighties, usually in the same arrangement. It was a long counter atop a large clunky vanity that extended all the way to the floor. I’m not quite sure when the name ”Jack and Jill Sinks” came about, but I suppose it had something to do with fetching a pail of water. Anyway, the days of the same old clunky vanity are long gone. Designers have created an endless variety of ways to arrange two sinks in bathrooms. Let’s take a look at a few!
It seems every house hunter type of show I watch on television includes a couple who simply must have double sinks in the master bathroom. Is this some sort of relationship saver?

Damask patterned skirts take on a more formal approach in this Mediterranean style bath. Choosing the right fabric will allow you to use sink skirt with a range of decor styles.
A billowy linen adds warmth against a cold farmhouse sink. Using skirts in lieu of cabinetry also aids in creating a farmhouse look in your kitchen. This kitchen contains a well curated mix of a few of my favorite elements, including a canvas sink skirt. Its juxtaposition against a moder n stainless steel sink is unexpected, but works well with the eclectic character of the space.
historic hues – We tend to go for white, but color can make a big difference in the bathroom. This Art Deco-style space sports mint-green tiles that instantly transport you back to another era. Note the slim border of black tile, a classic traditional feature. When it comes to bathroom wall lights, it may be worth taking the time to find ones that match your look, like these retro numbers.
