Cinderella Vessel Sinks November 04th, 2017 - 14:45:16
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.
Vessel sink vanities are never as pricey as my clients think they will be. What I tell my clients about the sinks and what they can do for a bathroom they will instantly assume that they will cost an arm and a leg. When I tell my clients what the price of the sinks are they are usually so surprised and so excited that they will want to go out and buy them that instant. This is good news for me because the sooner they install the sinks the sooner I can sell the house.
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.
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.
