counter-revolution(Sugar Hill GA – September 18, 2014) MTI Baths continually reinvents itself – always reaching for ways to allow designers to customize when it comes to bath design. Their newest integrated Counter-Sink concept allows even the most seasoned designers to step off the regular path for design and think differently. Joining MTI’s design-savvy Boutique Collection, the new integrated Counter-Sink gracefully connects one fixture to another in a minimal seamless look. And, very importantly, MTI Counter-Sinks are compatible with most manufacturers’ vanities.

This “Counter-Revolution” is largely being driven by the popularity of freestanding tubs, and freestanding tubs taking center stage in the bathroom. Integrated Counter-Sinks feed the desire for simplicity while seamlessly fitting into the most elegant of bath designs. MTI Baths’ new Counter-Sinks allow complete customization and solve many design challenges. This sink concept is ideal for multiple task stations, small spaces, narrow baths and for designers with a creative vision at maximizing micro-spaces. The Counter Sinks allow you to wipe spills from the countertop right into the sink for ease in cleaning, making maintenance a breeze. The best designers know when laying out a bath space that it’s all about scale and proportion, and the Counter-Sinks allow a perfect fit every time. The look is modern, sleek and clean – yet understated.

The new counter sinks from MTI Baths answer the need in the market for increased flexibility in products to meet the particular situations and challenges faced by consumers when designing or remodeling a bathroom. Many consumers have shared that they feel like they are trying to fit a square peg in a round hole when selecting products for their bathrooms. This was the inspiration for the customizable MTI Counter Sinks. These new integrated sinks are extremely versatile. The length, width, deck height and bowl placement can be customized to any specification. Additionally, custom colors and designs are available for projects, even furthering the level of complete customization. And MTI will ship in 15 business days.

Like all products in MTI’s Boutique Collection, the Counter-Sink is also sustainable, being constructed of MTI’s proprietary Engineered Solid Stone® (ESS)*, a mixture of natural ground minerals and high-performance resins that are liquefied, poured and then hardened. The result is what looks and feels like molded stone. ESS is 100% solid through and through, with no hollow spots, voids or surface coating. It is a non-porous material that is not only beautiful, but extremely easy to maintain. Approximately 65% of the material is organic, and MTI utilizes a resin of combined renewable bio-derived and / or recycled content, all of which makes MTI’s ESS material quite “Green”. MTI Baths’ Counter-Sinks allow complete customization and provide a proportionally harmonious bath space.

Since 1988, MTI Baths has earned a reputation for award-winning design, personalized customization and artisan quality. MTI tubs, shower bases, sinks and hardwood bath furniture are Handcrafted in the USA. MTI also offers water-resistant teak accessories and frameless glass shower enclosures.
