Clarice Vessel Sinks November 05th, 2017 - 10:29:40
So I finally did it. I bought my own house and when I brought in my contractor to change up the place the way that I like it I had decided that I wanted something different for the bathroom and kitchen. I wanted something that would give them a sense of style and class and he had made a few suggestions to me. One of his suggestions was to replace the sinks with some better ones. He had some bathroom vessel sinks in his van that he was going to install later at a different site and showed one to me. When I saw it I then knew what I was missing in my new house and immediately placed an order to have them installed. I then looked for some vessel sink faucets to complement its overall look.
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.
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.
For me, bathroom vessel sinks are the best - period. I have flipped many houses in my time, and every person that I work for always asks me what the best sink is. Time and time again, I always come down to a bathroom vessel sink. The sinks that are used in the kitchen are also top quality, but the bathroom sinks just have a little bit more of a substance to them. This could be for many reasons, and lets explore some of them right now.
