Copper has natural antibacterial properties. It will prevent the germs from developing in the sink. Some copper sinks have coatings which totally remove the natural antibacterial properties of copper, so it is advisable to go for a non coated copper sink for the sink to be germ free. Moreover the coating or the plating will eventually wear off. Natural colouration of copper is feasible but ageing improves the appearance of copper. Copper apron sinks that are mainly used in farmhouses can be made more feasible if you give a fire and ice finish on the apron.

Vessel sinks are sinks that sit on top of a counter rather than being lowered into or mounted under it. Most often the vessel is a round bowl shaped vessel but the basin can be any size or shape. Other than bowls, square basins are popular. Vessel sinks can be made out of a variety of materials but the most popular are glass, stone, or metal. The vessel can sit directly on the counter or on a base which builds it up more. If you have this kind of sink you need to think carefully about the faucets that you use. They need to be able to get the water up and over the vessel edge and the controls need to be easily accessible. Vessel sinks are trendy and are most often seen in homes that feature modern design and decorating. You can use a vessel sink in any bathroom that has counter space.
