Benefits of a Large Bathroom Sink?

Good Questions

Q: We are just about to jump into a bathroom renovation in our tiny 1920's house, with one tiny 1920's bathroom. I see so many sinks that are large, and take up the whole vanity space leaving essentially no useable countertop or surface. I see this in small bathrooms as well, not just spacious ones. After a bit of a discussion, my husband and I are opting for an itty-bitty sink, favoring the open countertop space over the sink space. But I still feel like I am missing something, what exactly is the benefit of having a large sink?

All we do in our sink is wash hands, faces, brush teeth, and shave. Perhaps you or your readers can offer some opinions on this to help us figure this one out?
