Ormazd Vessel Sinks November 05th, 2017 - 10:27:12
The way that the bathroom vessel sinks perform is yet another reason that I highly recommend them to my clients. Have you ever had a sink that practically had the water dribbling out of it? Or even had the water come out so forcefully that it would splash all over the bathroom including you? These vanities are made to be of the best quality, and to outperform any other sink. Just try one yourself, and you will see what I mean.
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.
Whichever mounting method you use, you will want to install the drain in the vessel before installing the sink to the counter surface. Drains for vessel sinks come in two basic configurations. Does your vessel have an overflow? If so, you will need a standard drain. However, most vessel sinks do not have an overflow and will need a "vessel style drain". Vessel drains come in many different styles and finishes. These drains do not have a "pop up" assembly. Some are referred to as "grid drains" (referring to the "grid configuration" on the top of the drain). Grid drains were designed to let the water flow out of the basin but catch larger objects from heading down the drain.
For your wall mounted faucets, the design can either be widespread or center set, depending on what works for you. If you have a hot and cold water delivery system, make sure the material used for your faucets is able to tolerate the changes in temperature. Different vessel sink faucets, in their different materials, have different lengths and finishes, and their biggest variable is usually the pricing. Luxury faucets with a timeless radiance to them, may cost you as much as $450, so make sure you have sufficient room in your budget to cater for them. Of course, there are cheaper options available in the market as well to suit all budgets. You should remember that it is important to stick to a budget, not only when it comes to buying vessel sink faucets, but anything else as well.
