Bisaillon Vessel Sinks October 20th, 2017 - 09:11:47
When designing the sinks in your bathroom, you have to give some thought to the design of the vessel sink faucets that you will get. This becomes somewhat challenging, if your vessel sink vanities are made of materials such as stone or glass. Most sink faucets made from those materials would not be as long lasting, and thats why metal is the desired material in most cases. Combining the right kind of design and finish, will give you that consistent look that with an undeniable appeal.
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.
As the popularity of vessel sinks has grown, so has the number of beautifully hand-crafted products that practically demand exhibition. By sitting entirely above-counter, vessel sinks can be displayed for their beauty as well as their functionality. The great thing about vessel sinks is they are not reserved for use in any one type of bathroom. Modern designs, conservative spaces, rustic décor and everything in between can all be enhanced by a vessel sink. Thus, the aesthetic this type of sink accommodates is rather extensive.
Most vanities are 30 to 36 inches wide. Some double units are 60 inches across.

It is a sink that rests on a countertop or on top of a piece of furniture.
