this was the third sink i bought for this bathroom (my fault, not Overstock). I had to send the others back - square was too large and recessed was too ugly. this one is perfect! it is slightly smaller and shorter than the huge 16 and 17 inch bowls, but yet sits totally on top, not recessed. Our vanity is only 25" and the spout comes out of the wall at a low angle, so the "tulip" shape was perfect to allow extra spout room where it curves down. I highly recommend this product. it also shipped quickly .
