What Houzz contributors are saying:
In this sleek, streamlined bathroom the large, wide sink completely covers the countertop from back to front, making it impossible to drip water on the counter in front of or behind the sink. If a shelf were mounted above the sink to hold the soap, then you wouldn't care about dripping water as you reached for that either. When you design a space with wood countertops, try to arrange your sink and soap so that all of your dripping goes into the sink instead of on the counter. You'll do a lot less wiping up.
Alternatively, a double vanity can be accomplished with one extra long sink split into two compartments with two faucets. In this version, there is a divide between the two compartments that offers some elevated horizontal surface in addition to the counter space below.
