Bathroom Design Elements: Classic Sinks to Consider!

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.

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.

You won't believe how this ugly basement space looks now that we added a pretty, spa-like bathroom! #DIY #bathroomdesign #renovation #beforeandafter

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.

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.

Velvety soft and classic, Grohe's Seabury widespread 8" bathroom faucet with cross handles adds timeless design and high end charm to a classic bathroom by #HelloLovelystudio.

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.

A gorgeous and classic widespread bathroom faucet (Seabury by GROHE) is paired with a DXV Oak Hill bathroom console sink in this timeless classic bath by Hello Lovely Studio.

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:

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.

    I’m a big fan of both console and vessel sinks. I’ve used the Kraus sinks you featured in several of my renovations and love them. They are high quality yet very reasonably priced. And, that Venetian mirror is to die for. I’ve admired them for years but have not yet had a chance to use one. Good to see Anthropology caries them! Some day!

      I’m looking forward to using a vessel sink one of these days in conjunction with an antique we want to re-purpose for a vanity. I have a collection of venetian mirrors and never tire of them. Happy new week, Celia!
