Round sinks with the recognizable shape of a bowl are perhaps the most popular vessel sinks. They have the power to make your bathroom look more elegant, classy and noble. The clean shape of a round sink carries a certain reputation and can undoubtedly assure your bathroom 's wealthy appearance. We like to play around with contrasts and as there are surely many round sinks out there to choose from, the simple tones of white and black or grey are the ones that bring most calming energy into the space.
The gradual using up of natural resources will necessitate a serious review of how we use energy and water. Noken 's ‘Ecodesign ' approach offers a selection of environmentally friendly options that minimise risk and achieve a high level of efficiency. For example, the levers on its ‘cold water opening system taps ' move only to the left: this allows for temperature control and ensures hot water is used only when necessary. Other sustainability instruments developed by Noken include: an ‘Eco cartridge ' (its two-position switch makes it possible to use 50% less water and energy), and a water ‘flow rate limiter ' (that uses jets and air to reduce water consumption).
Green and gray is a less common combination in the bathroom (or for that matter, in any room of the house), and it is hard to pull off unless you get the balance absolutely right. You might want to stay away from very dark shades of green when combining it with gray in the bathroom, as it can create a dull and at times garish atmosphere. Lighter tones of gray combine with lime green and olive green, with a matte finish working well in classic, Victorian and shabby chic style bathrooms, while contemporary bathrooms in gray benefit from simple pops of green.
For a truly raw and unprocessed look, pick a vessel sink that looks almost as a pure stone, without much alterations. Even when they are processed and neatly shaped, stone vessel sinks still have that organic feel to them; a certain striking appeal that works well both as an elegantly shaped stone bowl and a rough round sink that 's coarse on the outside and smooth on the inside.
The perception that black vanities work in only polished, modern bathrooms is just a misconception that is being fanned by those picture-perfect bathrooms on catalogs and décor magazines. The black vanity can easily fit into any style that you already have going in the bathroom. It all depends on the material that you choose and the finish. A vanity in polished stone or with man-made finishes obviously looks great in the minimal, contemporary and transitional bathroom. One the other hand, a dark wooden vanity with a distressed finish is perfect for traditional, shabby chic, eclectic and rustic spaces.
The reason why vessel sinks are so popular among lovers of minimalism is because they have a really clean look and their design offers no room for clutter! If you use a vessel sink in combination with wall mounted faucets, you get a great addition to an already tidy bathroom, one that assures even more space and openness.
