A big thank you to American Standard for supplying the faucets and sinks for our bathroom makeover. All opinions are 100% mine; I only recommend brands I trust for my own home.
I am so excited to finally share some of the finishing touches in our bathroom renovation! It has been a long wait and we are almost there to reveal the entire newly designed guest bathroom, but today I want to share one last special touch that I think brings the modern sophistication and the vintage appeal together perfectly.
Let’s first step back to our bathroom design…
As you can see, the vanity with the pop of navy and double sinks is the focal point of the bathroom. Last week, I shared how we were able to save our builder grade vanity base while bringing high style to the bathroom. For the top, we had some decisions to make.
For the sinks, we chose the Studio Drop-In Sink from American Standard. While I love the look of a raised sink, I was concerned that the bowl wouldn’t be deep enough to keep the kid’s splashes from spilling everywhere. This sink really is the best of both worlds in that it has a lip like a countertop sink but the bowl actually recesses into the counter tops and is deep enough to keep the water from splashing out.
Of course, we needed a standout faucet to really put this vanity all together, and this faucet is like the jewelry of the vanity area! I am all heart eyes over these beautiful Patience Faucets from American Standard. The high arch of the faucet gives a modern, elegant feel, while the coin-edge detailing and Queen Anne furniture inspired handles whisper to my vintage heart. It begs to be admired! It is the perfect upgrade for our vanity and works very well with our modern classic design vibe in this bathroom. While there are four finish options including polished nickle, brushed nickle, and legacy bronze, I chose the polished chrome. It’s a classic look that will work very well with the other hardware finishes in our bathroom.
While it took 4 weeks for our counter tops to be delivered, we installed both the sinks and faucets in one evening. When the sinks arrived, I sent in the manufacturer’s cutout specifications that came with it. It is basically a diagram telling the countertop makers how big of a hole to cut for the faucets and sinks.
For the sinks, we simply had to caulk the undersides (where the countertop and sink meet) and drop them in. Couldn’t be easier than that! The faucets have an innovative design with a speed connect installation system. This is a much easier installation than the process that we have done before. You can learn more about the how Speed Connect System works here.

We are about 95% complete at this point in the bathroom. Interestingly, I had planned to paint the mirror framing in a metallic bronze, but I am really liking the bare wood look. I never quite expected that, so I am going to give it a few days before I commit to a decision. What do you think?
