You know when you see something you know you won't forget it because you liked it so much. Well, that was me years and years ago when I opened a Pottery Barn Kids catalog. I saw the below image, or something very similar to it. It was a painted trough sink for a kid's bathroom. I've always had that image filed away in the "if you ever get to design your kid's bathroom" folder. Well, now that we're moving, I'm hoping to find a home where I can put our, ok, my stamp on it. I tend to always do something for the boys first so I've really been thinking of their bathroom.
As much as I do adore a painted trough sink I don't think they are a good option for every bathroom though. I need more storage, so for a master bathroom I probably wouldn't select it. And, well, for girls, they have so much hair and make up stuff there is no way a medicine cabinet would fill all their stuff. But boys, oh sweet boys. They're normally simple with just a toothbrush and comb. So a trough sink for a boy's bathroom I think would be perfect. Imagine if you painted the under side of the sink a royal blue and did royal blue and white penny tiles in the bathroom? Classic, yet so fun.
Keep scrolling for more inspiration and let me know if you would do this. Also, wouldn't a trough sink be perfect in a laundry room or mud room? Where function meets style in the unexpected.
