  • I love the look of a vessel sink, but I think I prefer the undermount for practical purposes. My dad got a vessel sink for his powder room and everytime you turn the water on, it splashes up the sides of the round vessel. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad if the sink were deeper or it were a square vessel, but the one he has makes more of a mess which is something I don't need.

  • I love the look of a vessel sink in someone else's bathroom. But for my master bathroom, we need the room of a double sink/ countertop combo. We have a solid surface counter top.

  • We just remodeled our bathroom and put in a vessel sink.  I had heard of the problem with the water splashing back over the rim so we bought a faucet designed for vessel sinks.

  • We bought a vessel for our bathroom and it's so pretty. You have to make sure you get the right faucet to go with it, but they look so much better than the undermount.
