I initially bought a similar standard sized white vessel sink (~16" wide), and it was too big for my small 1/2 bath. This sink was the perfect solution! It looks great, the quality is excellent, it includes an overflow, it's very easy to install, and it gives me that same modern vessel style sink look I was after. I wanted just a standard white porcelain style vessel sink since I have very modern tile and accents in the bathroom, so the white sink would tie in the white toilet as well. I highly recommend this sink to anyone looking for a smaller vessel sink for their 1/2 bath or even small guest bath.
