Wash basin on a stand from Qin
As we know, many tend to choose the plumbing of traditional forms and designs, so the idea of Qin to distinguish a sink as a separate piece of interior looks fresh and non-standard.
This model consists of an elegant glass block with a transparent glass built in its upper part. Such an unusual piece of furniture can be put in a corner of the room, or near a wall or even in the center of the room. Qin offer a choice of shells with a coating of a shade of gold leaf, silver or copper, as well as options with a matte finish of any color from the palette offered by designers.
It looks exquisite, and the color scheme is ideal for a bathroom. Another plus is an extra space for make-up and a hairdryer, for example (and it must be said that in the bathroom it's always difficult to figure out where to store all the necessary accessories, especially if it is intended for a woman's day).
In our case, this interior detail is made in a neutral style, and therefore ideal for men. Glass as a base material adds to the design of sophistication, and the warm beige shade of the coating somewhat resembles the color of natural wood, making the interior cozy.
Wash basin with an invisible coating "under the skin".
When it comes to choosing a shell, rarely does anyone pay special attention to its shape and design. As a result, almost all washbasins in houses and apartments are similar. But for those who prefer unique things and ideas, there is also a choice. Here, for example, as in the photo below:
This collection of unusual in its design washbasins created by the Californian company Native Trails. In terms of shape, the shells are not particularly different from traditional ones, but due to their unusual coating they look like real works of art.
At first glance at the photo it seems that the washbasin is sheathed with natural leather, or even completely made of it – but in reality it is not. It is made of copper, or rather, even from recycled copper, obtained by melting copper pipes and wires, so there is another good reason to choose it on it.
All the work on the creation of the model (with the exception of the process of remelting the metal itself) was carried out manually. A very interesting specimen is like a leather thing, with an exceptionally masculine character. It will perfectly fit in the interior of the men's bathroom – but that does not mean that it can not be used in other interior solutions, either. It looks impressive – few would have given it up!
Massive and old-fashioned – or thin and elegant, like an egg shell?
If we talk about the stylistic solutions of modern sanitary ware and furniture, it should be noted that most often they are very simple in form and design, and fit perfectly into the minimalist interior, now beloved by most homeowners.
It is impossible not to agree that it is convenient – the house is not cluttered with extra things and is not overloaded with accessories and other decorative elements. For the bathroom minimalism is ideal in everything – from the interior in general, and ending with its functional elements in particular.
The washbasin is no exception; it is logical, if it will be a simple and convenient streamlined shape, without unnecessary decorative textured details, which are usually lime layered over time. The washbasin rounded in a rounded form is ideal in this case – it does not matter whether it is somewhat old-fashioned, exquisitely-stylized or sustained in a minimalist style.
This copy is very modern, if we talk about its style solution, and, by the way, very typical for European interiors; Together with this, he provides more freedom in relation to design ideas for the interior in general. It is made of porcelain, and in its shape, color and shade, remotely resembles an egg shell.
The accessories for the drain hole with the plug and for the bypass opening can be chrome-plated, with polished nickel coating or the color of the darkened bronze. You can buy such a copy for about 6500 rubles.
Water tap in the form of a dragon
In building shops and shopping centers today you can find a lot of useful and useless things; but one true truth – there is always something special, unique for everyone, for example, this is how this water tap in the form of a dragon. Of course, the chances that he will use insane popularity are small – first, because he does not really fit in with the traditional European or American culture, and in general is not very impressive.
In Asia, where this symbol comes from, people believe in life after death, as well as the fact that a man lives not one but several lives on earth. The Asian calendar is full of mysterious signs and symbols, and according to him, every year passes under the sign of a certain animal, mythical or real.
And still the inhabitants of Asia, especially the Chinese and Japanese, believe that they are all descendants of dragons, mysterious and powerful beings, symbolizing power and authority. Despite the certain stereotypes associated with dragons in European and American culture, in Asia they continue to be honored and considered generous, kind and wise creatures.
In Asian countries, you can see a large number of graphic and sculptural images of dragons. All of them are closely connected with local mythology. The decor of Swarovski crystals is already a modern detail, symbolizing wealth and well-being.
Perhaps representatives or true connoisseurs of Asian culture will appreciate this unusual specimen, but it is very difficult to say unambiguously how the designers and lovers of unusual ideas can see it for the interior of another cultural origin.
Bathroom Sink Sink
The basic design concept for the shells from this collection is the S-shape. Here designers, they say, tried to kill two birds with one stone, creating a washbasin and simultaneously with this curb, and from the same material, and combining them into one piece of the interior. To this end, and appeared in its design of unusual S-shaped lines.
The upper part of the structure is occupied by a washbasin in the form of a small depression in the upper panel. Below – two shelves for cosmetics and other accessories for bath and shower. It is assumed that such washbasins will be made of dense plastic or carbon fiber, i.e. Durable and durable materials, which are easy to give the desired shape.
Shell in the form of a starfish
As mentioned above, there is a category of owners of apartments and houses who do not like to use the traditional approach in the interior. It is for such people and there are unique models of furnishings and non-standard solutions for their creation. During the conversation about the unusual design of the bathroom sinks, we can say that there are tremendous square pieces, but an even more unusual solution is this shell in the form of a starfish.
Outwardly it resembles a pentagon, but on the inside it is very similar to a starfish – especially in a place where smooth lines converge, connecting five corners of a figure at one point.
The model from Ticor is made of porcelain, and it is luxurious! By the way, it can be supplemented with a bathroom interior with sea motifs. This is a glossy white sink; all the bright features of its surface are highlighted by a nickel-plated mixer. Acquire all this incredible luxury can be approximately for 9500 rubles.
Sink from Eleek in the form of a bean
In textbooks on anatomy they write that the kidney of a person resembles a bean in shape. Well, but this washbasin is similar both to that, and to another.
It is very unusual in terms of shape and base material, as it is made from recycled metal (or more precisely, from 90% cast siliceous bronze and 100% recycled cast aluminum). And this, you will agree, is already a serious step towards saving our planet! If desired, you can choose a version with a smooth coating of natural color or with imitation patina.
This unusual shell of round form is very convenient and easy to use. One more detail: the model is equipped with four small supporting legs, so that it is easy to install on any surface. It is rather small in size (height -13,5 cm, width – 55 cm, length – 33 cm), but this does not affect ease of use.

How to choose the right bathroom sink?
If you decide to finish the bathroom, you will be surprised by the wide range of plumbing models available today. Washbasins and washbasins have changed very much both in terms of molds and style solutions; their range is no longer limited to one-color porcelain models in the form of a bowl – now you can choose a very unusual option, and any color and size.
But, as we know, diversity breeds the pangs of choice. There are several important points that will help you determine the right model.
First of all, you need to take into account the size of the bathroom, and decide where in this room you plan to install the washbasin. If you create an interior from scratch, it is worth leaving more space around the sink to store toiletries and freedom of movement.
Also, it is necessary to decide at once, to what you are inclined more – to traditional or more decorative models? Do you want a hanging sink, a washstand, or a model built into the countertop? You can also choose a sink in the shape of a bowl or a wash basin with a curbstone. Among other things, when choosing a plumber, it is necessary to take into account the lifestyle and habits of those who will eventually use it, as well as the area of available bathroom space.
Well, the last thing you should pay attention to is basic materials. The most popular and affordable shells are ceramic. There are models of marble and granite: on the one hand, they are more durable and durable, but on the other – are not cheap. It is also worth paying attention to models made of brass, natural stone, chrome-plated metal or stainless steel.

The combination of white and black, bright and transparent, massive shelves and a lot of stylish elements for the bathroom – this can not be ignored.

What a flight of fantasy for designers! Everyone can find something to their taste and wallet! I liked the idea of the shell under the skin. as well as a very interesting idea of the S-shaped shell!
Each of the shells is very beautiful and fits into a certain interior of the bathroom. But especially I want to mention the S-shaped sink, which is ideal for any interior, besides it is very convenient with its two shelves and does not take up much space.
Presented so many truly wonderful ideas for storing things and this is true for many of us. Especially for women who need to accommodate so many different female devices and lotions, and often just nowhere.
S-shaped like the most because it combines beauty and functionality. The dragons look pretty, too.
Here is this option in the form of dragons (or snakes?) I "Game of Thrones" reminds you, you do not have such associations?)) Very creative, designers brave!
Yes, I, too, sink with a tap in the form of a dragon inspired by the famous TV series! And so, of course, if I decided to do the finishing of the bathroom, I would stop on a monochrome porcelain model in the shape of a bowl.
