Gaetane Vessel Sinks October 14th, 2017 - 00:53:53
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.
You also need to consider just how much effort you want to put into maintaining your new vessel sink. These sinks come in a variety of materials including ceramic, glass, wood, stone, marble and copper. Many of these materials require added maintenance to keep the sink looking good and functioning like it should. Glass sinks, even tempered glass are prone to breakage and so special care needs to be taken each time you use a sink made of this material.
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.
These vanities usually have a stone top and glass, marble, stone, copper, bronze or other metal for the vessel sink. The vessel sink itself can be high and deep, almost like a cup shape, or much shallower and wider. Copper vessel sinks look nice with stone, but if you have one of the more ornately designed sinks (the ones that look more country-kitchen than ultra modern), tile is a workable choice. Black marble looks especially nice with the more modern design copper vessel sinks. Glass, even cloudy green glass, sounds great, but the final result looks weird -- it is too easy to see glue, or some other telltale sign of construction through the glass. If you are totally in love with the glass-look, make the most of it in glass tiles for the wall. Copper and green glass do look good, but the finished effect should not show anything unsightly.
