This sink is very nice. Purchased it for a bathroom remodel, and it looks good with the other details. Being white, it is susceptible to getting dirty easliy, but no more so than other white fixtures. Two things to note, although neither are shortcomings of the sink themselves. 1- there is no overflow hole. If the plunger is pushed down to stop the water from draining, the sink could potentially fill up and flow over the rim onto the floor, etc. You may want to consider a drain that does not have a stopper/plunger. 2- the height of this sink makes it much harder for children to use. You can recess the sink into a hole in the vanity, but if you wish it to stand on its own, be prepared that the sink is higher than usual. Even if you use a vanity specifically designed for vessel sinks, it is still hard for kids to use.
