Bisaillon Vessel Sinks November 05th, 2017 - 10:14:26
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.
As the popularity of vessel sinks has grown, so has the number of beautifully hand-crafted products that practically demand exhibition. By sitting entirely above-counter, vessel sinks can be displayed for their beauty as well as their functionality. The great thing about vessel sinks is they are not reserved for use in any one type of bathroom. Modern designs, conservative spaces, rustic décor and everything in between can all be enhanced by a vessel sink. Thus, the aesthetic this type of sink accommodates is rather extensive.
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.
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.
