Vallee Vessel Sinks November 02nd, 2017 - 05:29:32
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.
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.
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.
The next vessel sink is recently being incorporated into newer models of houses and to remodeled old homes. These sinks are known as pedestal sinks, which includes a pedestal to support the basin and at the same time, concealing the pipes used for its drainage and water supply. Like the wall-mounted vessel sink, the pedestal sink is practically used to save space. The minimal size of the pedestal sink allows simple installation, and is mostly suitable for installing a sink on wall parts that are near the corners. The pedestal sink is also ideal for small spaces such as powder rooms. These sinks are often made of vitreous china, fire-clay, porcelain or ceramic.
