The universe in the bathroom it has transformed so much in recent years that today its importance has been compared with the rest of spaces of the house. After decades of being relegated to a second plane, and going unnoticed on the interior design, we can say that the bathroom is now a benchmark for firms and designers.
This transformation has gone through all the materials and parts that compose it, from the healthpassing any fittings, furniture or floor coverings. Nothing escapes the gaze of the designers that take into account every inch of this shrine to the design of any of the elements that compose it.
One of these elements that form part of the bathroom and it is also indispensable, is the sink. Its design has been modified radically in the last decade, passing from the traditional pedestal sink white porcelain to plenty of proposals, colors and materials.
The sinks color as the salmon, the green or the gray we move into the decade of the 60’s or 70’s, to the rooms of our grandmothers with these tiles so eye-catching. The aesthetic “Kitsch” has never renounced to this trend, but what has changed are without a doubt the forms and finishes of these toilets. Have nothing to do those designs with the current.
A traditional bathroom with a white finish, coatings without personality and health with classic shapes, we proposed full of joy and colour. Sinks come to our houses have geometric shapes, bold colors, and even textures:
Kast, the british firm has made the leap to the creation of sinks with Cocreto pigmented, a material that’s tremendously versatile that combines characteristics of natural stone with the ease of mold to acquire any way.
In the last year have launched a collection of washbasins pigmented colors, trendy, geometric shapes and surfaces with textures and patterns linéales.

The terra-cotta, and other earth colors are shades ideal for bathrooms with a style more natural and peaceful. Combined perfectly with neutral colors and finishes, more current as the terrazzo or the reliefs, as used recently in the design of bathrooms.

Other colors more extended in the design of the sinks are the green and blue versions dulleralways in a matte finish. These colors take us back to the ocean in all its shades and are great to give to the bathroom a little bit more current.
Lovers of the latest trends in to dare even with the versions sculpted these sinks pigmented. Reliefs that represent linear patterns and geometric patterns inspired by the subtle designs with Art deco style of the early TWENTIETH century. Suggestive forms and refined that bring elegance and sensitivity to this item.
If there is a surface that fits in with these sinks color is the marble. This material is clean, versatile and stylish, offering strength and support surface to get the most out of our bathroom.

Wood is another material that best combines with this type of sinks, either in natural finish or in more current versions. The only thing you should keep in mind is that it is treated to withstand the moisture and that its design will go in line with that of our sink of color.

If we do not have much storage capacity, opt for a basin with a low piece of furniture can save us from many misadventures. In this case, choose a piece of furniture with a color and finish that is founded with the sink without any clashes.
Currently we can find a multitude of options ready to be adapted to these new designs. Modern furnishings with geometric designs, asymmetrical and very resistant materials.
Leave the sink flown is without doubt the option most aesthetic and minimalist, but we limit the support surface and storage options. It is ideal for toilets courtesy where space is limited and we don’t need space to save things.

If you are decided to install a sink of color, the fittings that fit in better with these design are the golden and black color, both without brightness. In addition, their original forms ask for faucets with lines more current.
Opt for this kind of sinks can have some disadvantages, how to deal with a trend ephemeral, or the fact that we get tired fast of them. This same happened with trends like terrazzo, finally, we ended up standardizing and adapting it to current needs.
