Clarice Vessel Sinks November 04th, 2017 - 04:03:58
Vessel sinks can add so much style to a bathroom. The look of the sinks, are like no other, and you will know what I mean if you see the sinks. These sinks are one-of-a-kind, and because they can create such an amazing atmosphere in the bathroom, I will strongly urge each client of mine to consider installing them before selling their house. I have literally seen the sinks sell houses all on their own.
Due to design considerations, a mounting ring is not always desirable. If you want to mount the vessel directly into the countertop, you will need a hole that is at least 3" in diameter with a beveled edge in the countertop material to accommodate the shape of the bowl. You may want the hole to be more in the range of 5" - 6" if the vessel is larger for stability. Use clear silicone to provide cushion and stability when mounting the sink. If you want to lower the level of the sink you can simply enlarge the hole. The larger the hole, the more stability you will achieve in the installation. To experiment with the size of the hole, use a piece of cardboard. Start with a smaller size - say 3" - and work your way up. This will give you a visual as to how far down the vessel will be relative to the counter throughout the size range that you choose. Be sure to keep the height of the faucet you have chosen in mind when making these decisions.
The bath sink vessel lends itself to individual expression via a wide variety of colors, surface finishes and material choices. At one time you could have any color you wanted as long as it was white but you can now source high quality vitreous ceramic sinks in an astonishing range of variegated glaze tones and primary colors. Subtle ivory, sea greens, crystalline blacks and traditional celadons span the spectrum of pastel hues and highlight the extraordinarily range of surfaces available from major manufacturers and specialty firms. The use of color in our home and bath has changed in recent years due in part to an influential group of design artisans who produce one-of-a-kind bath sink products to individual preferences and specifications. The custom forming of individualized sinks presents an unprecedented range of choices for architects, interior designers, decorators and discriminating home owners.
Another important aspect here is the after care. After installing a new vessel sink you may have to pay more heed to the after care in order to nurture the modifications. Especially sinks made of porcelain, china or glass may need some special care. The reason behind this is that sinks made of these materials have a tendency to get scratches easily. You may even need to keep away hard water stains and only use gentle cleaning ingredients. You should also endeavor to use non-abrasive cloth on vessel sinks that scratch along using mild soap and water. Vinegar can work wonders for hard water stains. Also you must avoid using steel wool, abrasive cleaners, or harsh chemicals which have a tendency, to damage the vessel sinks.
