Unless you have a huge countertop, this sink is perfect. It's large enough and deep enough to accommodate any function you have for it but doesn't take up a lot of space. It appears to be sturdy. For the price it's a bargain. This is my second vessel sink in this area because the first time I was not savvy enough to realize the sink would be too high for me on a traditional height counter. This sink is perfect in this regard. Not too high to make it awkward and not too short to make it limited.
