There's no doubt about it — if you're looking for ultimate luxury in your bathroom, a marble sink is the way to go. From Calacatta and travertine to Carrara and Arabescato, the natural stone is a classic yet high-end choice that will complement any polished interior. Plus, it looks wonderful on vanity tops, walls, floors, and backsplashes as well. As an added bonus, these unique vessels are nonporous (when correctly sealed), super easy to clean, and able to last a lifetime — no warranty needed. Ready for some inspiration? These seven marble bathroom sink ideas will have you pining for the luxe life.
1. Think about the size.
An onyx marble sink can add an edgy touch to any white bathroom, and this design by Athena Calderone is no exception. It's important to consider the size of your space, though. A wall-mounted trough sink is perfect for a small bathroom or powder room.
2. Go for a marble vessel sink that's both minimal and luxe.
Sometimes the most luxurious things come in the smallest of packages, and this rectangular vessel proves it. Handcarved from a single block of Carrara marble, the basin features a unique gray veining that stands out in this minimal luxe bathroom.
3. Add drama with unique veining.
It's all about choosing the right veining when it comes to marble, and you can bet that Amber Lewis got the memo when designing this sumptuous bathroom. The wall-mounted sink looks like it's been cut straight from a block of stone, and it features varying shades of gray, beige, and brown. Shopping for a piece of marble to turn into a sink? Look for cracked marble with interesting swirls and unique dappling.
4. Create a seamless vanity.
If you're looking for a clean aesthetic, work an integrated sink into a cultured marble bathroom vanity. Honestly, you won't regret it. This modern bathroom designed by Lindye Galloway features a lightly veined sink that seamlessly blends with the marble counter — it's trés chic.
5. Make it float.
There's something pretty breathtaking about any floating sink, but when it's made of a heavy material such as marble, it's even more jaw-dropping. And the single black and white basin in this sage green bathroom has been outfitted with a gold gooseneck faucet for extra wow.
6. Experiment with color.
It's not always easy to get hold of marble in alternative colors, but as you can see in this bathroom design by Elizabeth Roberts, it's well worth trying. The pink stone gives a nod to vintage style but is still fresh thanks to the trough-style design. Take your inspiration from the 1980s renaissance, and complement your pastel marble sink with shiny gold hardware.
