Ormazd Vessel Sinks October 14th, 2017 - 01:19:45
A special caution for glass vessel sinks. If you are installing a glass vessel, be sure to provide a cushion between the glass and the counter. This can simply be a bead of silicone or you may want to line the hole in your counter with a small piece of rubber material. In addition, be sure that you dont over tighten the drain assembly. Hand tighten only and follow the manufacturers instructions. The breakage we see with glass vessels is usually associated with an improper installation of the drain.
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.
Vessel sink installation is simpler than traditional flush mounted rim style sinks. A single 1.5 inch diameter counter top drain hole is all that is required to position and plumb a bathroom vessel sink. Conventional flush mount rimmed style basins require a much larger counter cut out almost as large as the sink itself. Vessel sinks have the additional advantage of providing more useable counter space beneath the curve of the sink bowl. Since a vessel sink occupies less counter area, this offers an additional advantage in limited space installations. Vessel style bath sink drains which were at one time difficult to obtain are now as commonly available as traditional drain fixtures.
Now you can beautifully display your distinctive style in a much more dramatic way than a simple sink, that is a basic basin, just sitting there inside the bathroom counter. You should have no problem finding one to match your decorating ideas with the wealth of vessel sink styles to choose from. In fact, there are as many different styles, shapes and colors to choose from as there are peoples personalities.
