Sink skirts have been a lasting style, derived more out of necessity to cover unsightly plumbing fixtures or bathroom toiletries than for aesthetics. But they’re not only highly functional and economical — they also provide softness to both kitchens and baths.
What type of material are your sinks made out of? If you are lucky then they are probably ceramic. If you have a standard home then they are probably some type of metal or plastic. Imagine how much your rooms would change if you tore out those old sinks and installed ones that were made from glass instead.

A lengthy sink calls for a skirt of doubled proportions. It adds softness to the space and is a perfect for hiding toiletries in the absence of bathroom cabinetry. Damask patterned skirts take on a more formal approach in this Mediterranean style bath. Choosing the right fabric will allow you to use sink skirt with a range of decor styles.
A long light colored counter, undermount sinks and unexpected large faucets keep this bathroom fresh and contemporary. Translucent doors, gorgeous wood, and hardware mounted to the walls are great accompaniments to these matching bowl sinks. This space saving industrial double sink is an all-time houzz favorite of mine.Here the sinks protrude from one long wood wall unit, giving it a long uniform look. It’s a great contrast to the glass wall across from it.
There’s no need to limit your sink to what’s on store shelves. Repurposing any number of vessels into a sink — whether new or vintage — will show off your personal style with little effort. From old metal buckets to massive shells to rain barrels — if it can hold water, it can be your next sink. Still doubtful?
