Ormazd Vessel Sinks November 02nd, 2017 - 04:27:51
As the popularity of vessel sinks has grown, so has the number of beautifully hand-crafted products that practically demand exhibition. By sitting entirely above-counter, vessel sinks can be displayed for their beauty as well as their functionality. The great thing about vessel sinks is they are not reserved for use in any one type of bathroom. Modern designs, conservative spaces, rustic décor and everything in between can all be enhanced by a vessel sink. Thus, the aesthetic this type of sink accommodates is rather extensive.
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.
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.
The wall-mounted vessel sink is mostly used for houses with a small bathroom. This vessel sink does not need any floor support which properly fits in a small space. The water supply and drain of this vessel sink are visible directly underneath the sink. This vessel sink is the most commonly used model as it is simple, economical and has easy installation procedures. The material used in making wall-mounted sinks may be selected from porcelain, ceramic, or china clay.
