Incase yoru not sure what I’m talking about:

@Eva Peron: We don’t have one, but my ILs do…it looks great! FIL installed it himself. It doesn’t make a mess, but then again theirs is in their half-bath, so it’s not used for brushing teeth, washing face, etc.

I am a cleaner, and this would jack my price up a bit if I saw it at a house that I was to clean. This and jacuzzi style tubs. I would have to clean the inside and the outside, all around….
For cleaning, I don’t like it, but for looks, I love it.

I like the look of it, but I agree it would be hard to keep up and I can see water splashing around it.

I think they look great but I don’t have one.
I feel like they would be better in a half bath or something where people arent brushing teeth, washing faces, etc.

Thanks for all the info ladies!
I love it aesthetically but I just wonder about function. I think we are going to go for it because of what it ads to the house. Luckily its just us two adults, so Im not worrying too much about the water madness!

We don’t have one, but I really wanted one for our bathroom. We ended up sticking with the sink we already had because we had to make some budget decisions regarding the remodel… Friends of ours have them in all their bathrooms, and I’ve never noticed any water splashing on the counters.

Had them at my parents house. Cleaning around them was a pain. They looked great though! The only thing i didn’t like was trying to wash my face in one, my hands would always hit the end of the sink (the faucet side) and found them generally awkward for that.
Other than that I do like them!

I think they look really nice but I think they’ll date the bathroom since I’m sure they won’t stay in style that long… we just put in regular sinks/vanities as we don’t want to have to renovate again before we sell!

We have them. They can be a little bit of a pain for cleaning. For instance around the base on the outside there’s always some kind of gunky build up that includes lots of little facial hairs from DH shaving. Since ours are round, just like the pic but ours are glass, it can be tough to get where the bowl meets the counter.
We dont have any real issues with splashing or mess though. My husband did it himself, but he’s very handy and can really do any DIY home project.

Have you tried a toothbrush, that what I use for things like that! And by the way, I also use them for toilets, where the hinges are, and where the toilet meets the floor…. works like a charm!

I almost did this for one of the new bathrooms in the house we are renovating, but FI convinced me not to. I like the look, and they have so many awesome looking ones out there now (porcelian, mosaic etc) surprisingly overstock.com had a ton. Anyway, FI thought they would look dated in less than 10 years, and I began to agree. He also said that some would require additional plumbing, but I’m not too sure what he meant exactly to be honest, since I don’t see the need for additional plumbing. I still like them though. The only thing I did notice is we have some friends that have one that is a clear bowl (tinted green) and the water spots dry on it and leaves watermarks all over it, and that would drive me insane since its so obvious with the clear bowl, so I would suggest a solid material.
