Are you looking for a very small bathroom sink? Sometimes this is necessary in a tiny bathroom or in bathrooms where the vanity countertop depth is constrained by a door opening or other impediment. One of the places I’d look first for a solution: Bates and Bates, which offers a number of petite ceramic bathrooms sinks. Above: “Gloria” is just a bit over 16″ wide and 16.5″ tall. And as you can see, it comes in color — you can get all these sinks in real color-colors: almond, biscuit, black, bone, desert bloom, ice grey, innocent blush, jersey cream, linen, mexican sand, rasberry puree, seafoam green, teal, white, and wild rose.
Gloria is Bates and Bates’ only petite countertop drop-in sink — the kind with pre-drilled faucet holes right on the sink rim, so that you can install it on laminate. Bates and Bates also has Doris, but it’s about as large at the Kohler Tahoe with hudee rim (Amazon affiliate link), which is my favorite sink for a Retro Renovation and which I would consider standard-sized rather than petite. Even so, Doris might be a good choice if you’re looking for colors — although, with another caveat: It’s more decorative, probably better for a late 60s house through a 90s house.
Mind you, I’m seeing that on some selling sites, some of these tiny sinks are being called bar sinks. Indeed, the Gloria sink shown in the photo at the top shows a bar sink faucet. Hmmmm… but put a bathroom faucet on it, and I think you’d be okay.
The rest of the petite sinks in Bates and Bates’ lineup would require a solid surface countertop that could be drilled for the faucet. Bates and Bates also has small undermounts, but I don’t show them here, as that becomes even more contemporary and less retro. That said, even I appreciate the seamlessness of undermount sinks.
The following three Bates and Bates sinks also look to be pretty tiny, even once you make room for the faucet:
Once you get to about 15″ tall, (front to back sitting on countertop), seems like once you add the faucets, these will be as tall as or even taller than the Tahoe. I’ll put these out there, though, especially since they come in all those color-colors:
