Bathroom Vessel Sinks

You’d think, living in my dream home, I would quit coveting other people’s bathrooms, but I recently saw this sink at someone else’s house, and I just loved it.  The sink is nice and deep, there is no “splash out” when the water is on full.  The faucet is very distinctive.  It was a very stunning presentation.

Generally I am a fan of  Undermount sinks because  they look so much more finished and are easy to keep clean, but I am quickly falling in love with these high profile porcelain vessel sinks. They pop with personality.  I’m taking notes.  This is pretty much my dream home, but I am not thrilled with the bathroom vanities.  Sometimes it boggles my mind that the builder was so meticulous on luxury details throughout the home, and put in run of the mill bathroom sinks and vanities.

Contemplating Bathrooms

See that bathtub on the left over there? We have one. It is in our new home. The home we aren’t living in.  The bathtubs here in University housing leave a lot to be desired.  In fact, I was just dreaming about remodeling the place.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I am very grateful to be here and my accommodations really are quite nice.  In fact, with just a little TLC, these apartments could be showcase units.  Each unit has an incredible deck or patio and the views are fantastic.

My primary complaint is with the kitchen and the bathroom — most especially the bathroom vanities.   These units have been around for a long time and they’ve seen a lot of use. The bathroom counters are stained and chipped.

The bathroom sink is what started my remodeling bent though. Because of the design of the sink and the ancient, sticky faucet, whenever I turn the water on, it comes blasting out, hits the bottom of the bowl, then shoots up the fronte and soaks my shirt. Because the faucet sticks I really have to crank to turn it, which means easing the water on slowly is near impossible.

So, I wish I was rich. I really do love these apartments and it would make me happy to be able to give every one of them a bit of a face lift, especially the bathrooms.
