platinum border sink in marble counter

Platinum isn’t just for hair, it’s great in bathrooms & on sinks too!

This post features the Big Fancy Border design painted on a Bates & Bates Suzanne porcelain drop-in bathroom sink. The fixture is made in Oxnard California, by Bates & Bates and decorated in Henderson, Nevada by me, Decorated Bathroom. Lucky customers who bought the sink and posted reviews on our website said…

Lisa E said “I absolutely love my platinum big fancy border sink. It is truly a work of art and superb quality”

J Cella said “I love my sink. I got the platinum version and it’s absolutely beautiful. Looks just the same as the day we installed it.”

Both gave it a 5-star rating and it really deserves it, it’s one of our best painted sinks and just one of the many gold and silver or platinum border designs we sell on our website, decoratedbathroom.com.

Platinum Ornate Border Decorated Sink

One of the reasons I love this border on the sink is that it’s on the rim, right up there where everybody can see it. It also looks great on the undermount too, where you can only see it when you get up close, check it out on the website, Big Fancy Border Undermount, always looks great in gold or platinum. An interior designer who ordered a pair of them recently, said

Ordered two of these for a client’s master bathroom. Not only were they gorgeous, but the customer service was phenomenal.

That customer service she is referring to is me, I am every department here at decorated bathroom, including blog writer. One of those lucky customers mentioned above, sent me a few photos of her bathroom and graciously allowed me to use them in this blog post.

Gold Big Fancy Border Gold Drop-in Sink

The Big Fancy Border in Gold on a porcelain drop-in sink.

I originally created this design in gold and it’s featured in a previous blog post here.  It was adapted from a historical archive. I created artwork on the computer in Illustrator, sent the file out the the silk-screener, SDI Custom Decal in Hawley PA. Sue, at SDI, then silkscreens a special ceramic decal for me. It’s a bit of a technical process and the gold and platinum are actually real gold and platinum and they are combined with a bunch of other chemicals. You put them on the sink, during the firing process, all the other stuff burns off and leaves just the gold or silver, at another (hotter) temperature, the glaze becomes liquid on the fixture at which point what’s left of the decal, the gold or silver is permanently fused to the glaze, it becomes a part of it. It won’t wear out of fade away with proper care, which is nothing abrasive. Just keep them clean, and buff with a soft cloth to get any water spots out.

This is one of the selection of gold and platinum border designs painted sinks we offer for sale on the website, decoratedbathroom.com. All made by me by hand in the USA. Thanks for reading. – Lynne
