A unique way to add greenery to your bathroom is with a leaf vessel sink. Although it looks like a one-of-a-kind expensive art piece, you can actually buy it off Amazon for an affordable price.
Leaf Vessel Sink Has Easy Installation:
Not only that, but these green leaf vessel sinks are simple to install. In many cases, a handy homeowner can take on this straightforward DIY project him or herself. (Check out the video instructions below.)
First of all, this style of above-counter sink requires minimal countertop cutting. Second, the matching waterfall faucet, drain and mounting fitting all come in the package.
Green Leaf Vessel Sink Package Includes:
- Leaf Shaped Vessel Sink
- Matching Brass Sink Faucet (mixer tap)
- Chrome Pop-Up Drain (without overflow)
- Chrome Mounting Fitting (fits between sink and countertop)
- Entire Package Only Costs About $150!
Oval-Shaped Sink Fits Well on Narrow Vanities:
In addition, this nature-inspired green leaf shaped sink fits well on small or narrow bathroom vanities.
For example, the width of this oval sink only measures about 14″ wide. Therefore, you can easily use it on a custom or homemade vanity that has a 18″ depth.
Not to mention, it works well in smaller bathrooms where you only have one sink. In fact, a hall bath or powder room can be the perfect room to make a statement. Guests frequently use it, and this space can often be challenging to decorate.
Note: Of course, the waterfall style faucet looks just as impressive as the elegantly-designed basin. However, the unique design also makes it extra functional. The wider faucet spout can minimize splashing, which can be a common problem with lower vessel sinks.
Benefits of the Mixer Tap Faucet:
By the way, this faucet has the mixer tap feature. If you don’t know much about this type of faucet, let me explain a few key benefits worth noting.
In short, the mixer tap mixes the hot and cold water together before dispensing them through the faucet. Therefore, you get more control over the water temperature and in turn can save money by using less water trying to get the proper temperature.
Benefits of Tempered Glass Vessel Sinks
According to MR Direct Sinks and Faucets, glass sinks tolerate high temperatures and don’t absorb stains or odors.
In addition, tempered glass has more strength and durability due to its manufacturing process. Therefore, like a windshield, it crumbles into chunks rather than jagged-edge pieces.

4 More Colors of Leaf Vessel Sinks:
For example, you can get a gold leaf-shaped vessel sink that also comes as a set with the waterfall faucet.
Alternatively, you can get a brown leaf sink with oil rubbed bronze matching faucet. The “Autumn Leaves” design also includes the pop-up drain and mounting ring.
You can also get a silver nickel leaf sink, which is hammered copper rather than tempered glass. It costs about $500 though, and that doesn’t include the faucet and drain accessories.
Lastly, Kohler makes what they call a white leaf vessel sink. However, this refers more to the style and design rather than the shape. Although beautiful and modern, it actually does not look like a leaf.
How to Install a Vessel Sink DIY Tutorial:
The following video explains how to install a vessel sink, plus some important factors to consider before doing the installation. In addition, you can see the measurements for the sink and faucet, including plumbing and spacing.
Note: Depending on the size and shape of your bathroom countertop, you may decide to mount the faucet slightly to the side of the leaf. In other words, you don’t have to position it directly center.
You can see examples of this in the photos above. And actually, some people prefer a side-mounted faucet because they say it also minimizes splash.
