Bisaillon Vessel Sinks November 05th, 2017 - 10:18:07
The bath sink vessel lends itself to individual expression via a wide variety of colors, surface finishes and material choices. At one time you could have any color you wanted as long as it was white but you can now source high quality vitreous ceramic sinks in an astonishing range of variegated glaze tones and primary colors. Subtle ivory, sea greens, crystalline blacks and traditional celadons span the spectrum of pastel hues and highlight the extraordinarily range of surfaces available from major manufacturers and specialty firms. The use of color in our home and bath has changed in recent years due in part to an influential group of design artisans who produce one-of-a-kind bath sink products to individual preferences and specifications. The custom forming of individualized sinks presents an unprecedented range of choices for architects, interior designers, decorators and discriminating home owners.
Vessel sink vanities are never as pricey as my clients think they will be. What I tell my clients about the sinks and what they can do for a bathroom they will instantly assume that they will cost an arm and a leg. When I tell my clients what the price of the sinks are they are usually so surprised and so excited that they will want to go out and buy them that instant. This is good news for me because the sooner they install the sinks the sooner I can sell the house.
You can get vessel sink vanities as small as two feet wide. Walmarts cute Pegasus 24 Cherry Round Vanity with Vitreous China Vessel Sink is $431 right now. Shipping will cost you an extra $120. For extremely small spaces, the design rule is to have any "furniture" (your vanity qualifies as furniture) be see through. In other words, no enclosed drawers. That may be the rule, but in practical terms, you need a place to store toilet paper and other bathroom essentials, and it is neater to close them in behind cabinet drawers. Consider your space either way -- both with an enclosed cabinet below the sink platform, or open and without the doors.
The next vessel sink is recently being incorporated into newer models of houses and to remodeled old homes. These sinks are known as pedestal sinks, which includes a pedestal to support the basin and at the same time, concealing the pipes used for its drainage and water supply. Like the wall-mounted vessel sink, the pedestal sink is practically used to save space. The minimal size of the pedestal sink allows simple installation, and is mostly suitable for installing a sink on wall parts that are near the corners. The pedestal sink is also ideal for small spaces such as powder rooms. These sinks are often made of vitreous china, fire-clay, porcelain or ceramic.
