Washstand – A classic washstand can elevate a plain sink into something more interesting while adding a sense of space. In this smart powder room, it works perfectly with the vintage-style faucets, checkerboard floor tile and subway wall tile. A hexagonal mirror and armed wall lamps with shades also add a traditional touch.
Another gorgeous vintage-inspired pedestal sink keeps the space open and makes it seem larger. These small sinks punctuate the wall with two dashes of white, which underscore the two circular mirrors. Only minimalists need apply for these!Have you ever seen sinks tiled on the underside like these? It’s brilliant!

Log – Take your bathroom back to nature with a wooden sink basin or vessel. Whether you have a found log custom-crafted into a sink, or a ready-made version from a store, make sure it has a polyurethane clear coat for durability. A substantial piece of wood like this can be very heavy — make sure it’s adequately supported on both the wall and floor.
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.
Each of these sinks includes a towel bar that also acts as a guard to prevent contact with the chrome pipes, which can get very hot when you’re running extremely hot water. These wood sinks are naturally gorgeous. That is, their appeal comes from the natural beauty of the wood grain. It might sound surprising, but with the right finish, wood sinks can last for generations. Most finishes need to be reapplied periodically, often every year.
