Sabourin Vessel Sinks November 05th, 2017 - 10:01:15
So I finally did it. I bought my own house and when I brought in my contractor to change up the place the way that I like it I had decided that I wanted something different for the bathroom and kitchen. I wanted something that would give them a sense of style and class and he had made a few suggestions to me. One of his suggestions was to replace the sinks with some better ones. He had some bathroom vessel sinks in his van that he was going to install later at a different site and showed one to me. When I saw it I then knew what I was missing in my new house and immediately placed an order to have them installed. I then looked for some vessel sink faucets to complement its overall look.
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.
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!
For an above counter installation, you will need a hole that is large enough to accommodate the drain assembly. This is the plumbing hardware that allows the sink to drain the water. If the bottom of your vessel is flat, then the installation is straightforward. The only thing we would recommend is a bead of silicone under the sink and around the edge to prevent water on the countertop from working its way underneath the vessel. If the vessel has a rounded shape - as with most glass vessel sinks - you have two options. You can either use a vessel mounting ring (sometimes these are provided with the sink) or you will need to provide a mounting hole directly in the countertop.
