Gallia Vessel Sinks October 31st, 2017 - 04:13:53
As for the installation of vessel sink vanities, like the installation of any other sink this can be a complicated undertaking. Professional installation is advised but not required. There are several websites dedicated to the step by step instructions for do-it-yourself vessel sink installation, but our suggestion is to follow the instructions given to you by the sink manufacturer. Remember, installing a sink is not simply the building of the countertop and the attachment of the sink basin, there is plumbing involved.
A trip to a home improvement store may land you amongst the various varieties of vessel sinks. Today, vessel sinks manufacturers have become contemporary and apart from the traditional metallic or porcelain vessel sinks, there are many different sink materials which include china or even glass. These can cost you a little more but they have many buyers who want to give their bathrooms a trendy and textured look. Vessel sinks are manufactured using specially treated strong and durable materials. The cost of materials has lowered considerably and hence vessel sinks are now available in brass, glass and porcelain which give a trendy look and are affordable as well.
A special caution for glass vessel sinks. If you are installing a glass vessel, be sure to provide a cushion between the glass and the counter. This can simply be a bead of silicone or you may want to line the hole in your counter with a small piece of rubber material. In addition, be sure that you dont over tighten the drain assembly. Hand tighten only and follow the manufacturers instructions. The breakage we see with glass vessels is usually associated with an improper installation of the drain.
I have not found anything smaller than 24 inches for a vessel sink vanity. If your space can not handle even 24 inches, consider a sink stand or even a hanging sink. Vessel sink stands are usually metal. They look a bit like glorified plant stands, but some designs are interesting. Hanging sinks are attached to the wall, and have nothing below them at all... kind of like public bathrooms, but much, much nicer. They are ideal for really tiny bathrooms that make people feel like they can barely turn around.
