Are Vessel Sinks Practical in the Home?

Reader Survey

We love the look of vessel sinks, and have noticed them popping up in more and more restaurants and other public spaces. They have also made an appearance on some of our favorite home shows, a function we assume of their fabulous style. That said, we haven't really seen them in the homes of any friends who have recently renovated bathrooms.Though vessel sinks do add a lot of style to a bathroom, we wonder if they are a practical choice for home use or not. We wonder about the ease of cleaning or repair, and question whether or not vessel sinks add value when it comes to resale. We would love to hear you opinions on the question, especially if you have real life experience living with a vessel sink.
