Never underestimate the transformative power of unique bathroom sinks. While we strongly believe interesting tiles, unexpected hardware, and chic vanities will elevate any bathroom, there's nothing quite like the wow factor a trendy washbasin brings. That said, installing a new sink can require some serious (and costly) renovations. And don't even get us started on the work that goes into installing new plumbing. But switching out your sink is a much cheaper option than a total overhaul, and it really turns up the style dial.
Unique bathroom sinks really anchor the entire room, too. Opting for little fixes and low-maintenance upgrades can make a bathroom appear hip yet timeless (which means you can put off any large-scale renovations). So if you're looking to give your washroom a modern overhaul, scroll through our roundup of statement sinks that will give your bathroom the royal flush.
Nothing is sleeker than floor-to-ceiling marble. This room feels clean and pristine, as any bathroom should. If you love the minimalist style and luxe materials, then you won't have to worry about accessorizing. The fundamental bathroom necessities make enough of a statement on their own. With built-in concave shelving as well as hidden storage, the floating sink can take center stage for a much-deserved solo. We'd give these tiles a standing ovation.
These side-by-side vessel sinks are twice the fun (pardon the pun). But in all seriousness, this bathroom sets the scene for a cosmopolitan atmosphere. With the elegant double vanities, matching black towel bars, and fancy gold details, this would be an impressive guest bathroom.
Organic curves and matte finishes. Enough said.
This take on an all-marble bathroom is rich with warmth and unique texture. For a similar effect, pay close attention to the details when picking out fixtures and faucets for your sink. For example, we notice the faucet handles are black and the spout is polished chrome, which matches the chrome vanity legs and attached shelves. This isn't necessarily a combination you'd expect with the warm shade of marble.
The takeaway? Play with unexpected combinations to get a beautiful and unique outcome.

This bathroom includes just the right touch of nautical style without overdoing it. Perhaps it's the blue-and-white color scheme that makes us want to go sailing. Whatever it is, we're into it.

Speaking of highlights, we want that golden pendant light.

If you're someone who likes to wear all black and resonates with Posh Spice, allow us to introduce you to the bathroom of your dreams.
