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.
I think this trend exploded in the eighties, usually in the same arrangement. It was a long counter atop a large clunky vanity that extended all the way to the floor. I’m not quite sure when the name ”Jack and Jill Sinks” came about, but I suppose it had something to do with fetching a pail of water. Anyway, the days of the same old clunky vanity are long gone. Designers have created an endless variety of ways to arrange two sinks in bathrooms. Let’s take a look at a few!

It seems every house hunter type of show I watch on television includes a couple who simply must have double sinks in the master bathroom. Is this some sort of relationship saver? I guess when you desperately want to brush your teeth and someone else is hogging up the sink with fifteen minutes of shaving it’s nice to be able to get your toothpaste and your gargle on at the same time.
Fountain – An elegant, vintage fountain brings the outdoors inside in a very different way than the previous sink. The copper verdigris in this photo honors the grand gardens of a different era. Depending on the age of your fountain, make sure to check for cracks and leaks that might need repairing before installation.
Vintage – Embrace the vintage patina of a salvaged sink in your home — this antique soapstone sink is perfect for cleaning up a messy craft room. Depending on how old they are and what they were used for, some vintage sinks don’t actually have holes drilled into them for plumbing fixtures. Take note — this will add to the overall cost.
