Nothing drops jaws and draws amused titters like the new and exciting. As in fashion, this often means the return of the old and familiar. Everyone and their Chocolate Lab had stainless steel or chrome faucets during the last decade.
The metals you should look for are ones that were popular yonks ago and have slyly snuck back into the design world. Bronze and hammered copper for example, are subtle and reflect light gorgeously.
Gib Tip: Dark colors are the partners for these earthy metals. You’re welcome. Sinks made of non-standard materials like smoked glass are also impressive and not crazy expensive.
Be even more eccentric and purchase a hand carved wooden bowl or artisan crafted ceramic sink in a unique organic shape. The kidney shaped swimming pool of old has been reincarnated as a sink!
I leave you with this last nugget. The privacy afforded when using the bathroom allows guests the opportunity for close examination. Make no mistake – you will be judged. So get out there and together let’s put the “vain” back in vanity.
