We often get requests from customers to adapt our hand-painted sink designs to very small sinks for very small bathrooms. Pedestal sinks are a popular choice but what we are featuring in this post are two vessels and a drop-in with some of our popular floral designs. Almost all of our hand-painted sink designs can be adapted to any vitreous china sink or basin in any installation style including vessel, drop in and pedestal. The first is the Chintz design painted onto a little oval drop-in, about 9 x 12″. Tiny!

Chintz Design Painted on a Petite Drop-in Basin

This was a really cute little sink, they are fun to make. It went to a lady in Canada who had an old house and the downstairs powder room was a converted closet. It was a traditional Victorian renovation and the Chintz design blended well with the style of the home. We purchased the blank sink from another supplier of decorated and hand-painted sinks, Marzi Sink Factory. Their product line is a little different than ours and they actually make all of the sinks themselves and sell them with nothing on them. This little sink has a very hard glaze on it and the flowers really shine.

Victorian Garden with Extra Hummingbirds on a Petite Biscuit Vessel Basin

This sink is teeny-weeny, it’s hard to tell from the photo but it’s the size of a large salad bowl, about 12″ in diameter and biscuit in color. This one went to Japan where everything is very small. We made the customer a matching set of accessories as well, featuring her favorite bouquets accented with numerous hummingbirds, just how she wanted it. The Victorian Garden design includes four bouquets of hand-painted flowers some of which are Bluebells, Lilies, Lily-of-the-Valley, Delphinium, Violets, Honeysuckle, Morning Glory, Daisy, Foxglove, Poppies, Asters, Cyclamen and Sweet William. Colors include deep maroon, purple, gray, gold, pink, blue and lots of different shades of green leaves. This design is very easy to decorate a bathroom around because there are so many colors to choose from.

Since it was a vessel installation, and there was going to be a mirror behind the sink, we decorated all around the outside so that the back can be seen in the reflection of the mirror. Next up in another design on the same sink, this one in white.

Blue & Yellow Iris Flowers Painted Vessel Basin

We normally do the Iris design on an under mount basin, but this customer wanted a small vessel sink instead. The blank sink we use is called a Kiernan Petite Vessel and we obtain them from Signature Hardware. Reliable, good customer service and they have an excellent selection of very small sinks, drop-in, vessels and pedestals, I’m grateful for that!! This one stayed in the USA, it was installed in a Boca Raton powder room in a Country French style.

These are just a few of the small sinks we have made for our happy customers. Please visit our website decoratedbathroom.com to see our complete collection of decorated bathroom fixtures including hand-painted porcelain sinks, toilets, tiles and accessories. Thanks for reading.

  1. […] This design works great on any sink with a drain in the center. See what it looks like on a very small vessel sink in a previous post. Great for a Country French or “Blue China” inspired bathroom […]
