Bisaillon Vessel Sinks November 05th, 2017 - 10:08:10
Due to design considerations, a mounting ring is not always desirable. If you want to mount the vessel directly into the countertop, you will need a hole that is at least 3" in diameter with a beveled edge in the countertop material to accommodate the shape of the bowl. You may want the hole to be more in the range of 5" - 6" if the vessel is larger for stability. Use clear silicone to provide cushion and stability when mounting the sink. If you want to lower the level of the sink you can simply enlarge the hole. The larger the hole, the more stability you will achieve in the installation. To experiment with the size of the hole, use a piece of cardboard. Start with a smaller size - say 3" - and work your way up. This will give you a visual as to how far down the vessel will be relative to the counter throughout the size range that you choose. Be sure to keep the height of the faucet you have chosen in mind when making these decisions.

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.
They come in two major styles, on vanity counter tops or stand alone. As previously stated a vessel sink, is basically a sink, usually in the shape of a bowl but not always, that simply sits on top of another surface. While there are some sinks that sit inside the bathroom counter top that are billed as vessel sinks, these are probably not what you are looking for. Whether you have your eye on the sink vanities, the bathroom vessels or the bathroom cabinet sinks, chances are that you will choose one because it is eye catchingly different from your traditional bathroom sink.
