Romaine Vessel Sinks November 04th, 2017 - 14:52:24
Whichever mounting method you use, you will want to install the drain in the vessel before installing the sink to the counter surface. Drains for vessel sinks come in two basic configurations. Does your vessel have an overflow? If so, you will need a standard drain. However, most vessel sinks do not have an overflow and will need a "vessel style drain". Vessel drains come in many different styles and finishes. These drains do not have a "pop up" assembly. Some are referred to as "grid drains" (referring to the "grid configuration" on the top of the drain). Grid drains were designed to let the water flow out of the basin but catch larger objects from heading down the drain.
Another important aspect here is the after care. After installing a new vessel sink you may have to pay more heed to the after care in order to nurture the modifications. Especially sinks made of porcelain, china or glass may need some special care. The reason behind this is that sinks made of these materials have a tendency to get scratches easily. You may even need to keep away hard water stains and only use gentle cleaning ingredients. You should also endeavor to use non-abrasive cloth on vessel sinks that scratch along using mild soap and water. Vinegar can work wonders for hard water stains. Also you must avoid using steel wool, abrasive cleaners, or harsh chemicals which have a tendency, to damage the vessel sinks.
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.
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.
