Timeless Dry Sink For Your House
Whether you’re looking for a furniture design that appeals to the more contemporary style of designing, or you want furniture that has a vintage look and feel, a dry sink is what you need. The dry sink is a basin used for basic hygiene functions that is not connected with a plumbing system. Used extensively in the days before indoor plumbing, such sinks were considered valuable kitchen accessories as well as ideal for placement in bedrooms a washroom, or other areas where people would wash or shave. There are plenty of furniture stores who do attempt to recreate dry sinks. They use various techniques like stripping new cabinets and scrubbing them with sandpaper to give the wood a distressed look. However, the fake ones are quite easy to identify from an authentic antique dry sink. Today, a dry sink is used mainly as a piece of furniture which serves a dual purpose of decorating as well as storage. You don’t need to limit using it to a bathroom for storage. You can use it in a bedroom or even in a living room.
As you can see, if you are planning to buy a dry sink, you are sure to be making a good investment. Just make sure that you buy an original piece. If that does not fit your budget, make sure you get a piece that explicitly mentions that it is a recreation. Getting a piece that you think is an original and then finding out otherwise will dampen your enthusiasm about it. And that simply cannot be allowed. So, go on and get yourself one of these wonderful masterpieces.
