Gaetane Vessel Sinks October 19th, 2017 - 11:51:22
Vessel sinks can add so much style to a bathroom. The look of the sinks, are like no other, and you will know what I mean if you see the sinks. These sinks are one-of-a-kind, and because they can create such an amazing atmosphere in the bathroom, I will strongly urge each client of mine to consider installing them before selling their house. I have literally seen the sinks sell houses all on their own.
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.
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.
They come in two major styles, on vanity counter tops or stand alone. As previously stated a vessel sink, is basically a sink, usually in the shape of a bowl but not always, that simply sits on top of another surface. While there are some sinks that sit inside the bathroom counter top that are billed as vessel sinks, these are probably not what you are looking for. Whether you have your eye on the sink vanities, the bathroom vessels or the bathroom cabinet sinks, chances are that you will choose one because it is eye catchingly different from your traditional bathroom sink.
