Wall-mounted sinks. What they are: These are sink basins that are attached to the wall--no pedestal, no vanity. Benefits: Efficient and perfect for tight spaces.

Today's materials and options can offer interesting flourishes (i.e. they don't need to be boring). Vessel sinks. What they are: Essentially, the whole basin/bowl sits on top of the counter. Benefits: They can be styled in so many ways from modern to rustic, turn-of-the-century-farmhouse chic. Bonus? If they're part of a vanity, they free up space underneath the countertop.

It's also energy efficient.
Floating vanities. OK, so this isn't technically a sink. But it's worth mentioning when talking about sinks.

It's yet another look to consider as you're pondering bathroom ideas. Houzz has a great article with plenty of eye candy here.
