Having an extra large sink in the bathroom is good for a number of reasons. First, it makes it easy to share a bathroom without encroaching on the other person’s space. Second, it creates a unique focal point in the bathroom and makes the space more original. Third, extra long sinks make cleanup faster especially if they’re used in a bathroom shared with kids.
To give you some ideas of how you could include an extra large or trough sink in your bathroom, here are 20 inspirational photos.
