Yolette Vessel Sinks November 01st, 2017 - 03:29:09
Vessel sinks are the newest trend in bathrooms because they allow for people to add a touch of beauty to a functional part of their bathroom decor. However, there are some things you need to consider if you are thinking of exchanging that old set in bathroom sink for a more modern and artistic vessel sink. Since vessel sinks sit on your counter top rather than being sunken, you need to consider your faucets. Standard faucets for sunken sinks simply are too low set to work with todays sinks.
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.
These vanities usually have a stone top and glass, marble, stone, copper, bronze or other metal for the vessel sink. The vessel sink itself can be high and deep, almost like a cup shape, or much shallower and wider. Copper vessel sinks look nice with stone, but if you have one of the more ornately designed sinks (the ones that look more country-kitchen than ultra modern), tile is a workable choice. Black marble looks especially nice with the more modern design copper vessel sinks. Glass, even cloudy green glass, sounds great, but the final result looks weird -- it is too easy to see glue, or some other telltale sign of construction through the glass. If you are totally in love with the glass-look, make the most of it in glass tiles for the wall. Copper and green glass do look good, but the finished effect should not show anything unsightly.
