Lavatory, from the Latin for "place where you wash your hands and other stuff" is a bathroom sink. But this is not a criticism. Of all plumbing fixtures lavatories offer you the best opportunity to tap into your inner designer. They come in all kinds of cool colors, patterns, styles, designs, heights, depths, widths, and materials. They can be pedestal style, wall hung, under-counter mount, above counter vessels, integrated, self-rimming, or freestanding. You might say they are the divas of bathroom decor.
