Evoking both a vintage and contemporary aesthetic, apothecary sinks add charm to bathrooms with their open framework and marble top.
Equally at home in a powder room when storage isn't a must...
...but also in a guest bath with a basket of towels underneath at the ready.
The options are endless with this style of sink.
The legs can be custom made in any width and style, but also in chrome, nickel or brass.
Glass cross bars are also an option, as well as glass legs.
I prefer chrome or polished nickel with a cross bar for towels.
I also prefer a lower shelf, preferably out of marble, but glass or metal shelving is also an option.
Pottery Barn sells the perfect apothecary sink for my needs.
I love the marble sink with its custom look and the marble shelf, perfect for storing towels and products.
Pottery Barn also offers the same sink as a double.
A nice option for a small master bathroom.
Restoration Hardware sells this industrial double apothecary sink for a new take on an old classic.
Another double sink alternative lets the beautiful marble take center stage.
This is definitely custom built.
In a master bath, two sinks side by side would be an option.
This side by side configuration sports porcelain sinks instead of marble.
I really like the shelf below.
For a custom sink, Palmer Industries is the best source.
They are the leading manufacturer of sink bases and can fabricate any size, shape or finish to accommodate any vanity top whether it be marble like above, granite or porcelain.
Imagine the possibilities for customizing your vanity!
The possibilities are endless!
Whether I end up using the Pottery Barn sink or have one custom made, I am definitely going with apothecary sinks in my downstairs guest baths.
In our powder room, I may go custom and create an apothecary sink like above.
As for the master bath, we have decided that we need cabinets to hide our stuff!
