20 Sinks To Blow Your Skirt Up

Here is a real fun thing about skirts that most of our household objects might feel jealous over: sinks get to wear skirts. You know, if you want them to.

I can’t think of a single other appliance or bit of furniture or architectural detail around the house (is a sink an appliance or a bit of furniture or an architectural detail?) that gets the option of wearing clothes, so really, sinks ought to feel pretty darn special.

But why would a sink need a skirt? This is a good question. Well, for hiding storage, or for keeping pipes warm (is that a thing?). Also, for going to church on Sundays. Duh!

I had too much fun combing the Internet for grand photos of sinks wearing skirts. I hope they brighten your day too! After the jump!

    For our first sink skirt, I bring you a twist: this sink skirt doesn't even LOOK like a sink skirt! Yet it still accomplishes all the storage benefits of a sink skirt.

    Something about this exposed hardware, a bit of a masculine touch on such a feminine style, really does it for me.

  • Pleats 9 of 20
    Pleats
    Pleated skirts are known to add volume, as in this case of this mini sink, which was otherwise disappearing in the room. Add a skirt and BAM! Statement sink.

    Here is what I like about this sink skirt: this sink skirt looks like a human skirt you could spend way too much on at Anthropologie.
