Have you noticed an overabundance of vessel sinks out there in the world, in people’s homes and elsewhere? They seem to be everywhere and there are a few good reasons for that.</br></br>Above-counter <a title="Vessel Sinks" href="http://www.atgstores.com/plumbing/sinks/bathroom-sinks/vessel-sinks/" target="_blank">vessel sinks</a> are the bowl-type sinks that rise up off the sink surface and were once only glimpsed in the kind of fancy restaurants where they stock mouthwash in the bathroom and some creeper spritzes you with “fragrance” for money.</br></br>Well, not anymore! And, here’s why:</br></br><strong>Vessel sinks are inexpensive.</strong></br></br>More accurately, vessel sinks <em>can be</em> inexpensive. Like anything else, they can also be extremely luxurious, but there are plenty of options that are far less expensive than more common <a title="Drop-In Sinks" href="http://www.atgstores.com/plumbing/sinks/bathroom-sinks/drop-in-bathroom-sinks/" target="_blank">drop-in</a>, <a title="Under-Mount Sinks" href="http://www.atgstores.com/plumbing/sinks/bathroom-sinks/under-mount-bathroom-sinks/" target="_blank">under-mount</a> or <a title="Pedestal Sinks" href="http://www.atgstores.com/plumbing/sinks/bathroom-sinks/pedestal-sinks/" target="_blank">pedestal sinks</a>.</br></br>Well, perhaps they’re more common <em>now</em>, but not for long.</br></br><strong>Vessel sinks come in <em>a lot</em> of different shapes and styles.</strong></br></br>The amount of variety you’ll find in vessel sinks out there really can’t be overstated. Whereas the aforementioned standard models most often come in white, off-white and beige, vessel sinks come in all kinds of crazy colors, patterns and shapes.</br></br>They’re also made with a wide variety of materials, too. Ceramic and/or china are still common in these designs, but then so is <a title="Copper Vessel Sinks" href="http://www.atgstores.com/plumbing/sinks/bathroom-sinks/vessel-sinks/style/copper/" target="_blank">copper</a>, <a title="Glass Vessel Sinks" href="http://www.atgstores.com/plumbing/sinks/bathroom-sinks/vessel-sinks/style/art-glass/" target="_blank">glass</a>, stainless steel and even stone.</br></br><strong>Vessel sinks look unique.</strong></br></br>Last but not least – and perhaps most attractively – above-counter vessel sinks make a unique statement. They quite literally stick out and demand attention. And, perhaps surprisingly, this look can work in a wide range of bathroom styles.</br></br>Plus, for all their growing popularity, they’re still in the minority and so when you see one it still stands out as something different; for now, anyway.</br></br>Put it all together and you can see why vessel sinks are popping up in bathrooms all over the place – pun intended. But, where do you stand? Do you give vessel sinks your seal of approval?
