Yolette Vessel Sinks November 03rd, 2017 - 14:19:25
I am a real estate agent and I noticed when I am showing houses that have vessel sink vanities in the bathrooms that they are sold so much faster than the others. The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the house, and it is either the first or the very last room that my clients will visit solely because it is such an important one. And bathroom sinks can make or break the sale of a house, and if it doesnt look its best then be prepared for disappointment - thats where bathroom vessel sinks come in. I will recommend bathroom vessel sink to all of my clients and that is because they can do so much for the bathroom.
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.
Most of the other materials will need periodic maintenance to keep them holding water properly and looking like new. Only the ceramic or porcelain type vessel sinks are easy to maintain properly. Of course, the type of sink you choose is going to depend on your overall bathroom decor. If you have an ultra modern bathroom decor then you may not want to choose a sink that looks like rough cut stone. However if you have used stones for your bathroom wall then a matching stone sink may be just what you are looking for.
As for the installation of vessel sink vanities, like the installation of any other sink this can be a complicated undertaking. Professional installation is advised but not required. There are several websites dedicated to the step by step instructions for do-it-yourself vessel sink installation, but our suggestion is to follow the instructions given to you by the sink manufacturer. Remember, installing a sink is not simply the building of the countertop and the attachment of the sink basin, there is plumbing involved.
