Lamontagne Vessel Sinks November 05th, 2017 - 09:47:04
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.
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.
Vessels represent a break from the traditional, with a raised sink design. What this means is that faucets for vessel sinks need to have a refreshed design for them to be consistent with the sinks in terms of both design and functionality. This opens up to a whole new world of possibilities. In most cases, these faucets come mounted into the wall slightly above the sink. The design insists on functionality, but without compromising on the aesthetic side of it. From the look of it, an unknowing eye would quickly conclude that the sinks and faucets are different, considering their separated designs, but that is not the case.
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.
