Cool bathroom sinks - add a little flare to your home

If you're looking for the best bathroom sinks you're probably different than a lot of people. Most don't even give a second thought when it comes to getting a sink for their bathroom. They let the builder decide or just buy a plain looking one.

Let's face it, the sink is the one thing in the bathroom that is under-appreciated but it can certainly make the biggest statement. Bathrooms have taken on numerous looks over the years but today's bathrooms are cooler than ever.

People have showers with 15 different spray settings and towel warmers and heated floors. You can have a granite vanity to go along with the travertine lined shower. All of those things are awesome but where do you get the most bang for your buck?

You guessed right... the sink! So I decided to show you my favorite top 10 coolest bathroom sinks (they're not in any particular order). These are some of the most beautiful and unique sinks I have ever seen. Truly works of art. Enjoy!

Note: due to their popularity, some of the sinks may be out of stock. However, you can always check back later or explore/search Amazon.com for similar ones.

2. Ceramic Vessel Sink

This sink is modern because it is a vessel sink but also is generic enough to fit any bathroom style. I am a big fan of rectangular vessel sinks and that is why this one is on my list.

The first sink was invented by Austin L. Richmond when he was 10 years old.

5. Green Onyx Vessel SInk

Green Onyx is a translucent stone with pleasing and highly varied colors and markings. Onyx is composed of calcium like marble, but it is much younger, sometimes by a couple of million years or even a few thousand centuries. Certainly each piece of onyx is wholly individual and unique, never a clone, and has its own particular appeal and attraction.

Bonus tips - how to take care of your new bathroom sink

So that it maintains its luster for many years to come.

The type of material the sink is made out of will determine how you take care of it. Here's a quick rundown of the different types and what you need to do to keep them in top shape.

Glass - Glass sinks can be finicky. If you let them air dry, water spots will develop. Use a mixture of vinegar and water to remove them. Also, be careful about storing things over your sink. If an object falls hard enough on the glass, it can shatter. It is also recommended that water temperatures be set between 120-130 degrees to prevent scalding water from shattering the glass. Also make sure you use a non-abrasive cloth to wipe it clean. Scouring pads will scratch the glass.

Natural Stone - If the material is porous, is is more likely to absorb liquids that can stain it. Use a stone sealer once a year to help it sustain it's natural beauty. It is also recommended that you use a stone polishing pad to wipe down your sink and clean it with a professional stone cleaning solution. These can be found at any local hardware store.

Copper SInks - Copper sinks are unique in that they develop a unique petina that cannot be rushed or duplicated. They age over time and, in my opinion, become more beautiful. If you have hard water, it is advised to wipe your copper sink dry after every use with a soft cloth. Copper sinks are more germ friendly also; bacteria can only live a couple of hours in them.

Ceramic Sinks - Ceramic sinks are very durable and can withstand almost anything. All they need is a little soap and water to keep them clean. You can use an all purpose cleaner or detergent to maintain it. Using abrasive cleaners and solvents might dull the surface so it might be best to avoid them. If you happen to have hard water, try to clean your sink more often in order to maintain a glossy finish.

*Also, if you have a handmade sink or something really unique, buyer beware is the best policy. Make sure to ask the artist about care and how to maintain your sink.

      I LOVE looking at bathroom sinks! My dream home, when I build it, will have the most beautiful sinks I can envision! What a great idea for a lens! I believe my favorite sink ever is a hammered copper sink I saw in an interior design store in Taos. Incredibly beautiful.

      I still favor the undermount sinks for practicality. A white ceramic combined with a nice piece of granite countertop always fgeives a clean look. I would consider using a vessel sink for a guest bath/powder room that gets only occasional use.
