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.

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.
Glass sinks add a neat look to bathrooms and kitchens. For one thing, glass sinks are usually made in unusual shapes which creates an interesting design for the room. They come in colors that aren’t typically used for sinks (like blue and green). They reflect the light of the room in ways that differ from traditional sinks. By playing around with the different textures, shapes, colors and effects of glass you can make a sink that really makes your rooms stand out from the rest.
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.
