Get the look: Kohler Brockway Sinks

December 16, 2014

A friend recently moved into a new house they just built and she showed me the most stunning double trough sink in her boys’ bathroom, a completely stylish and unexpected addition to the space. “Where did you get THAT?” I squealed. With a soft spot for anything remotely industrial, I was instantly in love. And since then, I’ve seen the same sink pop up in a few other houses, such as in this fun guest bathroom (above) on a holiday house tour I attended over the weekend. In this particular bathroom, there’s actually a pair of these sinks, each directly across from each other, completely framed out with custom cabinetry.

Initially I assumed these were vintage finds (lucky ducks!). But after a little sleuthing I discovered that they’re manufactured by Kohler in the Brockway series. Available in either a 3-foot or 5-foot version, they’re constructed of cast iron with an enamel finish. The soap dish and matching faucets are separate. If you choose to go the 5-foot route, the sink offers 3 faucets.

Obviously these sinks aren’t going to be for every space given their large size. But I’m loving the possibilities. Beyond being perfect for a large utility room, they are also great for shared kids’ bathrooms.  The lack of counter space means zero clutter – which could be good or bad depending on your needs. I liked how the homeowner designed a built-in cabinet around the original photo at the top, offering room for necessary items like toothbrushes, hand soap, etc.  Additionally, you may notice that the sink often appears in different colors on the underbelly of the basin. While it originally comes in solid black, you can have it painted to practically any color, instantly changing the overall vibe of the bathroom.

Here are some of my favorite images to get you inspired for your own space.

I’m loving the serenity of this all-white bathroom below. It’s all about the contrast of materials from the unfinished feel of the wood mirrors to the polish of the nautical light fixtures.

Here’s a smart little ledge to keep items close at hand. The sconces add a little more polish to the room.

What do you think? Are you digging the industrial look of the Kohler sink? I’d love to hear your spin on it in the comments!
