Sabourin Vessel Sinks November 02nd, 2017 - 03:49:11
They come in two major styles, on vanity counter tops or stand alone. As previously stated a vessel sink, is basically a sink, usually in the shape of a bowl but not always, that simply sits on top of another surface. While there are some sinks that sit inside the bathroom counter top that are billed as vessel sinks, these are probably not what you are looking for. Whether you have your eye on the sink vanities, the bathroom vessels or the bathroom cabinet sinks, chances are that you will choose one because it is eye catchingly different from your traditional bathroom sink.
For practical use, you want the rim of the vessel sink to go up at least six inches to prevent too much splashing, and the bowl part of the vessel should be at least 15 inches wide. There are also vessel sinks that are square, and are set more deeply into the vanities, which makes them feel a bit more like standard sinks and may make some users more comfortable with them. Finally, do not install the faucet for the sink too high, or you will get water splashing over the vessel, on to the vanity and then on to the floor. Thats a little bit more of a fountain effect than any of us wanted, I think.
I had bought a new house a few weeks ago and it inadvertently led me to discover vessel sinks. These sinks are some of the finest crafted sinks that I have ever laid my eyes upon. I was looking for a certain style to brighten up my kitchen and bathrooms and when I discovered vessel sinks I was convinced that I would not ever look for a different type of sink again. What I didnt know is how important vessel sink faucets are!
For your wall mounted faucets, the design can either be widespread or center set, depending on what works for you. If you have a hot and cold water delivery system, make sure the material used for your faucets is able to tolerate the changes in temperature. Different vessel sink faucets, in their different materials, have different lengths and finishes, and their biggest variable is usually the pricing. Luxury faucets with a timeless radiance to them, may cost you as much as $450, so make sure you have sufficient room in your budget to cater for them. Of course, there are cheaper options available in the market as well to suit all budgets. You should remember that it is important to stick to a budget, not only when it comes to buying vessel sink faucets, but anything else as well.
