Sinks: A Rugged and Refined Fixture
Bathroom sinks can deal with most things you try to wash down them, but they also can look elegant and modern.
Compared to rugged kitchen sinks, which are often described as “workhorses,” bathroom sinks can come off as dainty. They are small, sometimes colorful, and sometimes artsy.
But we all know the truth: bathroom sinks take plenty of abuse. From makeup residue to gobs of toothpaste, we ask our bathroom sinks to wash away plenty of undesirable leftovers.
Still, we expect our bathroom sinks (also known as lavatories) to look good no matter what we throw their way. The following pages discuss the many materials and styles you have to choose from when selecting your rugged—but attractive—bathroom sink.
