Vessel sinks might not be a term you are too familiar with if you are not an interior decorator or contractor, but they simply refer to the type of sink that sits on top of (or partially recessed) in a counter-top. While these types of sink are not as common as their traditional under-mounted sink counterparts, they do create a subtle “wow factor” when completed.
Below we have chosen a few of these vessel sinks that all feature modern yet simplistic design elements, require minimal maintenance and can be ideal for both home and commercial use. The rectangular white versions are made from high-quality ceramic, have smooth, non-porous surfaces with baked-on glazes for added durability and high-gloss finishes. We also threw in a sophisticated glass bowl vessel sink that features a stain and scratch-resistant surface and will instantly add contemporary styling to any bathroom in which it is placed.
