Before we headed to KBIS 2016 in Las Vegas, we heard from Kent Nelson, owner of Nelsons Bathtub Inc. that one of his company’s vintage style acrylic sinks would be on display at the show. Nelson’s is a longtime advertiser on the blog, and Pam and I both have long wanted to see one of these sinks in person. So, we made sure to visit the Master Brand Cabinetry display — which featured one of Nelson’s sinks in an adorable laundry room display. And hey — we really liked both the sink — and the adorable aqua cabinetry!
The sink we saw on display is one of the company’s new early century models (#3624) — which you can by alone or in a bundle that includes the sink, a Kingston Brass faucet and a drain basket.
After inspecting the sink, Pam and I both agreed that it was very nice, shiny and felt substantial. If I were in need of such a sink, I would not hesitate to consider one of the models available at Nelsons Bathtub Inc.
These sinks are made from premium-grade cast acrylic sheet – you can read about the material/process here. No, these sinks aren’t porcelain-enamel-on-cast iron — which as purists, we would prefer — BUT these are available in a wide variety of styles at a relatively accessible price point.
We count eight different designs available today (we remember when there was just ONE!) — including several featuring our beloved drainboards:
A cute vintage-style laundry space:
We also fell in love with the adorable laundry room setup from Master Brand Cabinetry. The vintage feel of the cabinets meshed well with the sink and faucet, plus did we mention how much we love the soft aqua color?
Just another testament to how using color in your home can make you feel — you know as opposed to that other colorless noncolor we always talk about — even the little dustpan hanging over the sink was happy!
