14 Stone Sinks To Boost Your Bathroom Design

There’s something about stone…substantial and weighty. There are so many places to use it in home decor, and one that’s becoming more common is the bathroom sink. From standalone pedestals and modern vessels to carved creations, bathroom designers are making the most of this sophisticated material that includes marble, granite and gemstones.

Pedestal sinks are perfect for a powder room where you don’t need a lot of counter space for toiletries and such. The elegant lines and statement factor of a stone pedestal sink will make a big impression on your guests. If you’re remodeling or building a new bathroom, it’s an easy way to get a lot of wow for your money.

From thin and sleek to more barrel like and substantial, modern pedestal stone sinks come in many forms. The larger they are, the more you can show off the grain and pattern of the marble or stone. If this is the only marble piece in the bathroom, it is a dramatic focal point.

A rectangular variation on a pedestal gives you a little bit of ledge space as well as a spot for towels or other essentials. Not including a traditional cabinet underneath keeps the look contemporary.

Marble carved into delicately flowing shapes is an art that has been around for centuries. While not a Bernini statue, a stone sink that is carved to resemble a draped shape is a stunning addition to a bathroom or powder room.

Unique design innovations can also make a stone sink extra special. Designed by Matthew Quinn for MTI, the semi-recessed sink below uses the countertop hole cut-out as the sink bottom. This gives the counter a continuous look and makes the sink look like a ring sitting atop the stone counter.
