Gaetane Vessel Sinks October 19th, 2017 - 11:36:00
Mounting rings for vessel sinks can be easily found at most home centers or online. They usually come in several finishes that you can match to your faucet and drain. A vessel mounting ring elevates the sink from the countertop and helps with the stability and seal of the sink. A vessel can be installed sitting on the countertop ("above counter mounting) or it can be sunk down up to a third or even half of its height. Some vessels are actually a hybrid of a drop-in style sink and a vessel - i.e. they are designed to partially sit above the countertop.
No longer is white porcelain your only bathroom sink choice. You will be able to choose from, almost any color imaginable and from a variety of materials as well as shapes and textures. For example you can choose from glass (the most popular choice); stone including marble, granite, onyx, travertine, soapstone and many others; copper and even wood. Of course for those that are not so daring there are simple white porcelain and ceramic vessel sinks available. Your vessel sink faucet choices are numerous as well and will be the finishing touch to the look you aim to achieve.
Another widely used sink is the traditional vessel sink. These vessel sinks have been used for designing bathroom sinks for many homes and businesses. This bowl-shaped sink appears to be submerged on a top of a counter. Tall filler faucets and sometimes wall faucets are installed above these vessel sinks. Traditional vessel sinks come in different types of materials such as china, ceramic, bronze, glass, and clay.
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.
