Gallia Vessel Sinks November 04th, 2017 - 10:46:12
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.
Mounting rings for vessel sinks can be easily found at most home centers or online. They usually come in several finishes that you can match to your faucet and drain. A vessel mounting ring elevates the sink from the countertop and helps with the stability and seal of the sink. A vessel can be installed sitting on the countertop ("above counter mounting) or it can be sunk down up to a third or even half of its height. Some vessels are actually a hybrid of a drop-in style sink and a vessel - i.e. they are designed to partially sit above the countertop.
The bath sink vessel lends itself to individual expression via a wide variety of colors, surface finishes and material choices. At one time you could have any color you wanted as long as it was white but you can now source high quality vitreous ceramic sinks in an astonishing range of variegated glaze tones and primary colors. Subtle ivory, sea greens, crystalline blacks and traditional celadons span the spectrum of pastel hues and highlight the extraordinarily range of surfaces available from major manufacturers and specialty firms. The use of color in our home and bath has changed in recent years due in part to an influential group of design artisans who produce one-of-a-kind bath sink products to individual preferences and specifications. The custom forming of individualized sinks presents an unprecedented range of choices for architects, interior designers, decorators and discriminating home owners.
When it comes to bathroom décor, choosing a right vessel sink can unbelievably transform the image of your bathroom. Vessel sinks are either made of porcelain, steel or ceramic and are fixed right under the tap in most bathrooms, whether public or private. A vessel sink is almost identical to a kitchen sink with a tap extending over the rim to fill it up. It really becomes hard to overlook a vessel sink while in the bathroom. The type of vessel sink may differ in accordance to the bathroom decor.
