I love the design of this sink. It has three curved sides, which makes it look very unique and also makes for a more spacious basin area. It is also quite shallow, at most 3 inches deep from the drain hole in the middle; towards the edges it's maybe 1 1/2 inches deep. So to avoid water splashing over the rim, I'd recommend a low-arc faucet on top of this sink. It also has ample space around the basin for storing your cosmetic essentials.
It is a heavy duty vitreous china drop-in sink and I believe it was uniquely made for the Kelston 23 in. W x 18.3125 in. D x 32.75 in. H Petite Vanity Cabinet, which has to be obtained separately. I have this vanity as well and the sink drops in perfectly and it is self-rimming. I think you probably have to use some sort of special plumber's putty or glue to attach it to the vanity, but I'll let DH handle that.
For now, our sink is not yet in use as we are having to replace some pipes first before we can even install a faucet on top of it, but I have no doubt that we will enjoy this sink for years to come once it is fully operable.

THIS SOLID SELF RIM BATHROOM SINK IS STRONG DURABLE AND LOOKS REALLY NICE. THE MOST GREAT THING ABOUT IT, THERE IS NO BOLTING TO THE WALL JUST MAKE SURE YOU LEVEL YOUR KELSTON VANITY CABINET THAT IS A SEPARATE PIECE TO PURCHASE. THEY BOTH GO WONDERFUL TOGETHER. HONESTLY THIS SINK IS REALLY NICE. IT HAS PLENTY OF SPACE TO PUT SEVERAL ITEMS ON IT BUT THE WIFE DOESN'T LIKE SO MUCH CLUTTER ON IT. OVERALL I LIKE THE WAY THE SINK LOOKS.

Probably the one thing that keeps me coming back to Kohler, is they're known for quality.
Although I have not installed this sink yet, I've thoroughly inspected the Vitreous China for defects. As expected just like any Kohler product I have had, there are no defects. The basin's deck is huge, and appears as it will help keep water from splashing on the counter. Plus, it will be a nice place to set any soap dish or such.
This sink is provided with a template for cut out. I plan on using the Kohler Artifacts Bell Design with prong handles faucet (see pic). The design is of such, it would fit any setting be it contemporary or traditional.
I highly recommend this sink as a drop in.

This is a very stylish sink. Too stylish, in fact, it sacrifices function for style. While the overall dimensions are quite large, the actual basin is quite small and shallow. Although the border is more than wide enough for a convenient molded-in soap dish, there is none. The back wall of the basin is angled and the mounting holes for the faucet are exceptionally far back, which introduces a real problem: no drain lever I could find was long enough to reach the control rod, I had to make an extension out of the old one, see attached photo. This also places the water spout oddly far back in the basin.
The strange geometry of the basin required drain extensions in both vertical and horizontal directions to reach the existing fitting in the wall. The overflow is just a round hole that faces you - wonder what color that will be inside in a year, and how to clean it? Finally, the outside edges actually angle outwards, which looks cool but has its own set of problems, like how to mount the sink flush against the back wall? All in all, too much style, too little regard for function.
The quality of the piece is excellent - solid gleaming white china that should be easy to clean and never stain or rust. It also claims to be chip-proof. Installation is easy - I put down a bead of caulk around the old hole, and squished the sink into it. I let that set up for a day, then caulked around the edges, although I was unable to reach the back because of the angle. That is all that holds it in place, there is no mounting hardware, but it seems to be enough.
So why did I get this sink, if I don't actually like it that much? You'll notice this is a "Seeds" review, and this sink was offered, and fulfilled a very specific requirement - to cover the scar of an old sink that was chipped and rusting, without having to replace the entire built-in countertop. And with its enormous border and small basin, this sink did that perfectly. So I got it, sight unseen. I'll admit, it is a great looking sink, the quality is first rate, and it works well enough - you can wash your hands in it, if not much else. My complaints may not be your complaints, I prize function and utility over style, and Kohler offers other models that are far more practical, but this was the only one on offer, so I took it. And it works well enough. If you like the style of it and don't mind the drawbacks, it is a high-end piece, well-made and easy to install. The only installation issue I have solved for you - see the photo.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CathyMMM Beautiful New Vitreous China Sink & Very Stylish
This Kelston self-rimming sink brings a new style and design to your bathroom. With its slanted lines and eye-catching curves, this Kelston sink offers a versatile design choice for any style bathroom.
It is constructed of vitreous china for lasting beauty and exceptional durability, It is manufactured by Kohler, and doesn't get any better than that, in my opinion. Plenty of room for your own soap dish, if necessary. I use the battery operated dispensers because they're much less messy. Self-rimming installation and easy to install. I also had the sink cabinet first, so this was a real necessity. Very pleased with this choice. Easy on the eye, and very functional. I was unable to post an image because it was less than the required pixels.

This is a modern looking stylish bathroom sink. Easy to install and came with good instructions. Could get it installed in a few minutes. Good to use at home or office midsize bathroom. Extremely easy to clean and maintain. The width is good enough to install it at a safe place in bathroom. Pretty good size and weight. Not heavy at all and came inside nice packaging.
