Their functionality and aesthetic works perfectly in both modern and rustic bathrooms, though. They’ll catch the eyes of anyone who tours your home. While most homes utilize porcelain, oval sinks, your bathroom can be unique and unexpected by showcasing a rectangular, metal trough bathroom sink.

It’s also less expensive to have one trough sink than installing two sinks and vanities.
