In Bathroom Design Elements: Classic Sinks to Consider, I’ll begin by introducing one of my favorite bathroom sinks; a timeless console sink with airy, classic style. We chose one for a bathroom we created here at the fixer, and you may be surprised to see the range of sink possibilities even when you narrow it down to something classic or timeless. Just a few years ago, it seemed there were only a few pedestal sink or freestanding vanity options in the big box stores, and now…holy cow! If you are gearing up to remodel, renovate, or upgrade, maybe you’ll find inspiration to get started.

But first…if you are feeling unsettled, uncertain, anxious, or blue, please do something kind for yourself and be a student for a few minutes. This teaching soothed and delighted me so much that I could feel my spirit opening and rising. (Please also share your thoughts/experience in the comments if you can.)
Bathroom Design Elements: Classic Sinks to Consider!
Our Classic Bath
This bath was truly a favorite project of ours. Why? Because this space began as a dark dungeon storage space! Of note: (1) There was no demo, and (2) we increased the property value of our home with the addition of a full bath.
Pretty Console Sinks for the Bath
Console sinks for the bath vary widely in price and configuration even when you narrow your search down to traditional, classic, and timeless bathroom console sinks.
Copper Bathroom Vessel Sink
Fireclay Bathroom Vessel Sinks
Rectangular Vessel Bathroom Sink Basin
Square Vessel Sink Basin
Bathroom Vanity Sets
Thoughts About a Powder Bath
Even though this bath we created is a full bath with a shower, it lives more like a powder bath since it is only rarely used and is reserved for guests.
There’s something I love about such a powder bath: you can take more liberties with them since excessive moisture is probably not going to be an issue.
You can be more daring with wallcoverings too since you won’t be hanging out in there and hence, won’t tire of it quickly.
Classic Bathroom Faucet
This one has been dreamy to live with, and I love the classic 1920s feel.
Experience has taught me to buy highest quality possible when it comes to faucets in the bath and kitchen. If you have ever had to replace leaky fixtures or live with cheap finishes then you know.
What perhaps looks like a bar of soap is actually a polished heart stone (received as a gift) sort of like these:
Bathroom Mirror Idea: Venetian Mirror
The mirror is vintage Anthropologie (don’t rule them out since they have a gorgeous selection of a few you won’t see anywhere else!). This one is very similar:
For a brief contemplative exercise, do visit my recent PRAYER POST with reflections from a diverse group of spiritual teachers and thinkers. If you need a smile, do see THIS and THIS for lighthearted whimsy.
I am ever mindful of the unique chapter of unprecedented disruption happening and how we are extracting meaning from it which will remain with us maybe forever. What I can offer is a spirit of peace and prayer as we continue together to be broken into beautiful.
Peace to you right where you are.
