Unique Bathroom Sink Ideas That Are so Fresh and Clean

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. 

Monochromatic Marble

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.

Chic Blackout

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.

Simply Nautical

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. Just check out those brass details and worn wooden cabinet. The white porcelain sink with round edges adds a contemporary touch as well. 

IKEA Törnviken Countertop Sink

This round countertop sink will flatter a variety of styles. A must-have, indeed. 

Upscale Arthouse

Now here's a wall-mounted sink we can get behind. This kid-friendly bathroom is insanely chic with a grown-up twist. We love the step ladder and double faucet, but what really blows us away is the oversized round mirror hung against crisp white walls. Flawless.

The casual wall-mount sink reminds us of those in art studios and farmhouse style classrooms.

Attainable Edge

Floating concrete is the coolest kid on the block. If you want to achieve a cosmopolitan edge, here's your inspiration. The delicate yellow gold details and softly rounded sconces (not to mention those floor tiles) really soften it up perfectly.

A cement or dark gray stone sink is the best way to make your home feel like a hip loft. 

Tasteful Minimalism

If you want a bathroom that feels elevated and chic (but also feels like it belongs in an actual home), take notes from this elevated beauty. That wood finish on the vanity is perfectly smooth, and the shade gives it a hint of formality. The white vessel sink really highlights the cozy elements, just like the white linens. Speaking of highlights, we want that golden pendant light.

Kingston Brass White Vessel Sink

The shape of this piece is what gives it a unique quality that won't overpower a space with innovation. 

High-Impact Gloss

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. Nothing says timeless and chic like a sleek countertop, brass hardware, and shiny blackout tiles. The simple wood façade of this vanity balances out the room, making it truly unique.

Never say never, but with one exception: this drop-in sink with a black marble surface. It'll never go out of style.

Island Neutrals

Talk about a master suite. If we could jump through the screen right now, we'd happily take a nice long soak in this bathroom. It's like being on a permanent holiday. Who wouldn't want these calm, neutral vibes at home? 

ECOSINKS Copper Drop-In Sinks

Is there ever a time that doesn't call for pounded copper? Nope! It's always a good option when you're trying to give your bathroom some oomph. 

Classic Glam

Here's a clever and approachable take on the aspirational glamor of traditional design. This bathroom makes a strong case for mixing unexpected combinations fusing classic looks with a modern twist. We love the way this shiny black sink protrudes from the traditional wood dresser, accessorized with gold décor and timeless candles.
