Unusual spa-style bathroom sinks center on the unexpected.
As bathroom sinks go, two styles are most unusual. In this ultra-modern “wet room” master bath, the Kohler Purist overflow vessel sink is flat! Essentially it has no basin – water flowing from the Danze Parma wall-mounted faucet hits the “wet surface” and runs off into the channel-drain around it. Expect splashing.
Because the sink is mounted against a stainless-steel-clad wall and onto a stainless console, splashing doesn’t do damage though stainless needs to be wiped to a clean shiny finish as it does show water spots. Floors and baseboard consist of equally water-resistent Daltile glass-pebble mosaic in Gleamy Blue. The look is elegant but the gamble with such an unconventional fixture is the love-it-or-hate-it factor that ultimately can be judged only with use.
A renovated master bath within a Richard Neutra house, the tile mosaic preserves a retro feeling while the pair of Kohler Gilford “scrub-up” sinks as a focal point do a little updating. The twin vitreous china beauties are usually seen in laundry rooms. They are large (30” x 22”), deep (9-1/2”) and bolt to the wall via brackets. Their integrated backsplash eliminates a need for tile behind them and provides a frame for a faucet that is cantilevered over and inside the basins to catch every drip. The sacrifice in such a set up is the lack of an ample sink deck. Here, a low tiled wall on one side and a stainless steel table in between do double duty as setting down spaces.
