There’s no need to limit your sink to what’s on store shelves. Repurposing any number of vessels into a sink — whether new or vintage — will show off your personal style with little effort. From old metal buckets to massive shells to rain barrels — if it can hold water, it can be your next sink. Still doubtful? Check out these innovative ideas to get inspired for your next home design project.
A long light colored counter, undermount sinks and unexpected large faucets keep this bathroom fresh and contemporary. Translucent doors, gorgeous wood, and hardware mounted to the walls are great accompaniments to these matching bowl sinks. This space saving industrial double sink is an all-time houzz favorite of mine.Here the sinks protrude from one long wood wall unit, giving it a long uniform look. It’s a great contrast to the glass wall across from it.

Wainscoting – Vintage-style wallpaper paired with tongue-and-groove wainscoting gives this compact bathroom a cozy atmosphere. Also note the toilet with a high tank — a classic historic design. Swap slick modern spotlights for a decorative chandelier, like this brass number, to keep things traditional. Claw-foot tub – A rolled-edge, claw-foot bathtub is a timeless luxury. For an indulgent, traditional look, combine it with wallpaper, plantation shutters and a marble-topped vanity. Painting the sides of the bath a dark color, like this French navy, adds a period detail.
These undermount sinks are quite deep, which helps avoid splashing as they’re used. Undermount sinks fit below the countertop. As you see here, the edges of the countertop are exposed, so they have to be finished and watertight. Many undermount sinks are used with solid surface countertops like the one shown here. They also work well with stone countertops.
Pedestal sink – Pedestal basins fell out of favor for a while. But they’re starting to look just right again, and it’s easy to see why. They have a period feel and simple lines, and this classic design effortlessly hides ugly pipes. If you have the space, two pedestals side by side can look particularly magnificent. And they work nicely with traditional beveled mirrors.
