I think the wonder of a bathroom is that it is a small enough area to go a little crazy, to let your creative hair down and just go for it! This week I am considering the sink. The simplest of functions really, to bathe, to splash, to hold water, but quite key to the bathroom.
In the kitchen too the sink is vital. Trust me, from living with a frustrating sink, good design is as important here as in anywhere. I have collated some truly beautiful examples o this humble interior element – from the uncompromisingly modern to the trusted and traditional, and a few more eyebrow raising finds to make us smile!
A great place to start, simple clean lines are coupled with rustic tiles and keep this bathroom feeling contemporary and well thought through.
For unrivalled elegance this black sink is beautiful. The water pours away to the right following the slope.
In a similar vein we have this double sink, minimal form in stylish matt black.
For that Deco charm and quality textures, I just love the glamour of this copper sink.
To the kitchen, actually everything about this wooden kitchen I love, especially the weathered sink.
A contour sink is quite a statement! I love the fluid lines, almost as if we are viewing a landscape from a bird’s eye view.
Ornate detailing on this sink would look striking in an exotic decorated bathroom, or alternatively in a stark monochrome space.
You can’t go far wrong with the classic Belfast sink. I always wanted one of these as a child, strange thing to desire when one is so young!
For dramatic texture try a concrete sink, though it does remind me a little of an animal feeding trough, beautiful though!
And finally, what a great idea! A sink stand can really be made out of anything, including a bike.
