vessel sink?
I am considering a vessel sink for my main bathroom. I am not changing the current wall and floor tiles, which are a light green (walls) and dark green (floor) color. I can get a vessel sink that matches the wall green. But, I have been told the round vessel would not match the square theme that the tiles have. I am putting in a new cabinet, sink, countertop, vanity, and lighting.
Please advise.

That's one sink I have no idea why someone would want other then they look cool.
Harder to clean around the bottom.
More prone to breakage and leaks since your counting on that one small area where it attaches.
Then people buy one with see through glass, every water spots going to show.

oh, and costly. and the footprint is such that if you get fed up and want to put in a standard sink, it won't cover the holes, you will have to replace the vanity top surface.

looked at 'em, considered 'em, blew it off and slept well that night and many thereafter.

sig: if this is a new economy, how come they still want my old-fashioned money?
