Cinderella Vessel Sinks November 04th, 2017 - 15:17:56
The most familiar bathroom vessel sink is a bowl-like form which mounts on a bath counter surface and is plumbed to a central drain. A range of innovative geometric forms expands the formal options associated with this popular bath sink style. Faucet sets are mounted on the counter top or installed in the wall adjacent to the vessel sink. The vessel form is inspired by the classic wash stand bowl & pitcher combination in traditional use prior to advent of modern plumbing.
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.
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.
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.
