Gaetane Vessel Sinks November 05th, 2017 - 10:03:04
I have not found anything smaller than 24 inches for a vessel sink vanity. If your space can not handle even 24 inches, consider a sink stand or even a hanging sink. Vessel sink stands are usually metal. They look a bit like glorified plant stands, but some designs are interesting. Hanging sinks are attached to the wall, and have nothing below them at all... kind of like public bathrooms, but much, much nicer. They are ideal for really tiny bathrooms that make people feel like they can barely turn around.
Whether you are looking for a sink for the bathroom and want to add a vanity sink to your bedroom (if that is possible) there are plenty of online catalogs to look through to help you make your choice. The vessel sinks for the bathroom are sometimes just a basin that is made to sit on top of your existing countertop (which will have to be remodeled when you take out the old sink) and sometimes they are a freestanding bathroom cabinet sink.
Most vanities are 30 to 36 inches wide. Some double units are 60 inches across. Check out Signature Hardware (lots of rustic looks, good for country houses) and Home Decorators Collection (23 choices, more modern looking... suitable for a city apartment). Lowes has a good selection too, and you should take a trip there or to some other local retailer before you buy one of these sinks online... it is always best to "meet" an item like this in person before you buy it. Elegant and chic, vessel sink vanities and faucets are becoming popular with homeowners who want to add an artistic quality to their bathroom design. It is a sink that rests on a countertop or on top of a piece of furniture. This article is not just going to tell you about all of the different kinds of vessel sinks but it will tell you how to install them as well.
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.
