Sabourin Vessel Sinks September 28th, 2017 - 03:29:15
Due to design considerations, a mounting ring is not always desirable. If you want to mount the vessel directly into the countertop, you will need a hole that is at least 3" in diameter with a beveled edge in the countertop material to accommodate the shape of the bowl. You may want the hole to be more in the range of 5" - 6" if the vessel is larger for stability. Use clear silicone to provide cushion and stability when mounting the sink. If you want to lower the level of the sink you can simply enlarge the hole. The larger the hole, the more stability you will achieve in the installation. To experiment with the size of the hole, use a piece of cardboard. Start with a smaller size - say 3" - and work your way up. This will give you a visual as to how far down the vessel will be relative to the counter throughout the size range that you choose. Be sure to keep the height of the faucet you have chosen in mind when making these decisions.
Vessels represent a break from the traditional, with a raised sink design. What this means is that faucets for vessel sinks need to have a refreshed design for them to be consistent with the sinks in terms of both design and functionality. This opens up to a whole new world of possibilities. In most cases, these faucets come mounted into the wall slightly above the sink. The design insists on functionality, but without compromising on the aesthetic side of it. From the look of it, an unknowing eye would quickly conclude that the sinks and faucets are different, considering their separated designs, but that is not the case.
These are several types of vessel sinks that you may want to choose from. The wide selection of sink models allows you to decide on what is most preferable for your home fashion sense. You may want to choose the types that are appropriate to the size and style of your bathroom and to compliment other designs you used on your home. The installation procedure should also be considered in choosing the right sink to fit your remodeling plans. Attractive sinks with easy to follow installation guides are the best picks for an ideal vessel sink.
You can get vessel sink vanities as small as two feet wide. Walmarts cute Pegasus 24 Cherry Round Vanity with Vitreous China Vessel Sink is $431 right now. Shipping will cost you an extra $120. For extremely small spaces, the design rule is to have any "furniture" (your vanity qualifies as furniture) be see through. In other words, no enclosed drawers. That may be the rule, but in practical terms, you need a place to store toilet paper and other bathroom essentials, and it is neater to close them in behind cabinet drawers. Consider your space either way -- both with an enclosed cabinet below the sink platform, or open and without the doors.
