Get Inspired: How Concrete Sinks Can Transform Your Bathrooms and Kitchen

Looking to create a kitchen or bathroom space that truly wows your guests?

While solid white sinks are a timeless and popular design choice, concrete sinks are equally striking. These contemporary vessels offer an unexpected way to add gorgeous depth to your home.

Durable, sleek, and offering just the right amount of industrial charm, they're quickly becoming a homeowner favorite.

Today, we're sharing a few of our favorite ways that you can liven up some of your hardest-working rooms with the perfect concrete basin.

An Eye-Catching Statement Piece

Made from cast concrete, these sinks are available in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and colors. This makes them the perfect choice when you're looking to add visual interest to your kitchen or bathroom.

Start by choosing a color that aligns with your personal style preference and the theme of your home. While gray is the most traditional aesthetic, you can also find concrete sinks in gorgeous shades of vintage brown and copper green.

For color inspiration, check out our Lissman Oval Cast Concrete Vessel Sink.

The earthy shade of jade is destined to become an instant statement piece in any bathroom remodel. Add some botanical wallpaper, brass cabinet hardware, and simple shaker-style cabinets and you've got an on-trend look that's unlike anything else in the neighborhood.

For the kitchen, make an impression with this Toxey Rectangular Cast Concrete Vessel Sink in stunning Dusk Grey. Especially set against a minimalist white interior, its rich tone will make an unforgettable impression.

Imperfectly Perfect

One of the best things about a concrete sink? No two are alike! Each one is filled with special markings and features that make it unique.

As such, you never have to worry about keeping yours perfect or pristine. In fact, it will only look better with time.

Compared to porcelain or ceramic sinks, which can easily chip and show signs of wear, the concrete material is already rugged. Ours are also covered with heavy-duty anti-scratch and waterproof coatings. This means you never have to worry about dropping silverware or styling tools in them or splashing too much!

As the years go by, it will develop an aged patina that leaves it looking even more exquisite than the day you first installed it.

During the casting process, certain additives are applied to the concrete to ensure it can stand up under decades of regular wear and tear. In other words, this is a sink perfectly capable of helping your family make a lifetime of memories!

Yet, though your new sink is durable, it's far from rough. Upon completion of the casting process, each bowl is carefully sanded. This produces a clean, smooth surface that's unlike anything else on the market.

An Ideal Vanity

Looking for a vanity that deviates slightly from the norm? Consider installing a round concrete bathroom sink on top of a matching concrete countertop. This monochromatic look is ultra-modern but still soft enough to complement traditional furnishings.

You can choose from sinks that are oval, round, rectangular, or square, depending on your needs and space availability.

Keeping the concrete colors the same adds a streamlined appeal and makes your room appear as large as possible. This works well if your bathroom is smaller and you need to maximize the room you have.

However, you can also contrast the colors for extra intensity. If you do so, try to keep the tones in the same color family, such as a dusk gray vessel sink on top of a black concrete countertop.

Want to add a personalized touch? If you have an antique or heirloom dresser, you can create a DIY vanity! Add a bespoke concrete vessel sink for a piece that's truly one of a kind.

Mixing Concrete and Wood

On its own, concrete sinks add a cool and polished look to any kitchen or bathroom. Yet, when paired with wood countertops, they take on a warm, rich look that only amplifies their appeal.

Do you have wooden or butcher block countertops? If so, adding a concrete sink is a beautiful way to bring the outdoors into your space. Together, the two surfaces ground each other and help bring the entire room together.

If you want the sink to blend into the counter, look for one in a vintage brown color, such as this Edsall Rectangular Cast Concrete Vessel Sink. Or, choose a different color to help distinguish your sink and allow it to pop.

One tip? If you're installing a wooden vanity in your bathroom, be sure to seal it with a clear wood stain. This way, you can still enjoy the natural look without worrying about the longevity of your countertop.

Adding Dimension With Angular Lines

While round or rectangular sinks will always be in style, you can also step outside of the realm of tradition with a concrete sink.

For a fun and interesting spin, consider a square-shaped sink!

Some, such as our Uriah Square Cast Concrete Vessel Sink, will feature an angular basin and sharp lines that make them perfect for a modern bathroom. Others will have edges that curve slightly up, as highlighted in our Gresham Square Cast Concrete Vessel Sink.

Regardless of which model you select, this shape adds flair to any room. Pair it with a straight, boxy faucet for a contemporary look, or offset it with a rounded model for extra softness.

To make sure your sink remains the focal point, keep the rest of your accessories simple and sleek. You can also opt for neutral paint so there's no competition in the room!
