Gaetane Vessel Sinks November 05th, 2017 - 09:55:34
Vessel sinks are the newest trend in bathrooms because they allow for people to add a touch of beauty to a functional part of their bathroom decor. However, there are some things you need to consider if you are thinking of exchanging that old set in bathroom sink for a more modern and artistic vessel sink. Since vessel sinks sit on your counter top rather than being sunken, you need to consider your faucets. Standard faucets for sunken sinks simply are too low set to work with todays sinks.
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!
I have made a lot of money in real estate over the last twenty years and I decided that I wanted to make my own permanent home. I will buy a house and then flip it and then sell it after about six month or so; I lived in these houses while I was working on them so I havent had a permanent address in some time. I was getting sick of moving every six months and I wanted to have a place that I could call my very own. And vessel sink faucets were the last thing on my mind when I was flipping, but now it was different.
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.
