My parents are in the process of renovating their bathroom and so I have been privy to many discussions on counter tops, faucets and sinks. Ultimately they chose to go with a built-in, recessed sink. I think they made the right decision. Plumbing-wise, it’s a lot more reliable and less likely to leak. Style-wise, I think it’s the more sophisticated way to go and of course, it’s pretty much impossible for it to fall out of fashion.
What do you think? Do you have above-counter sinks? What are their downfalls or why are the better?
