Clarice Vessel Sinks November 03rd, 2017 - 03:53:16
Now you can beautifully display your distinctive style in a much more dramatic way than a simple sink, that is a basic basin, just sitting there inside the bathroom counter. You should have no problem finding one to match your decorating ideas with the wealth of vessel sink styles to choose from. In fact, there are as many different styles, shapes and colors to choose from as there are peoples personalities.
So if you are willing to modify your bathroom décor or lets say your vessel sink you may have to invariably think about the faucet or the tap. You may even have to check out your plumbing because it may give you some limitations in your modification plans. And just in case you face some limitations, repositioning the pipes and your plumbing may just get a bit above our budget.
For an above counter installation, you will need a hole that is large enough to accommodate the drain assembly. This is the plumbing hardware that allows the sink to drain the water. If the bottom of your vessel is flat, then the installation is straightforward. The only thing we would recommend is a bead of silicone under the sink and around the edge to prevent water on the countertop from working its way underneath the vessel. If the vessel has a rounded shape - as with most glass vessel sinks - you have two options. You can either use a vessel mounting ring (sometimes these are provided with the sink) or you will need to provide a mounting hole directly in the countertop.
Most vanities are 30 to 36 inches wide. Some double units are 60 inches across. Check out Signature Hardware (lots of rustic looks, good for country houses) and Home Decorators Collection (23 choices, more modern looking... suitable for a city apartment). Lowes has a good selection too, and you should take a trip there or to some other local retailer before you buy one of these sinks online... it is always best to "meet" an item like this in person before you buy it. Elegant and chic, vessel sink vanities and faucets are becoming popular with homeowners who want to add an artistic quality to their bathroom design. It is a sink that rests on a countertop or on top of a piece of furniture. This article is not just going to tell you about all of the different kinds of vessel sinks but it will tell you how to install them as well.
