No longer is white porcelain your only bathroom sink choice. You will be able to choose from, almost any color imaginable and from a variety of materials as well as shapes and textures. For example you can choose from glass (the most popular choice); stone including marble, granite, onyx, travertine, soapstone and many others; copper and even wood. Of course for those that are not so daring there are simple white porcelain and ceramic vessel sinks available. Your vessel sink faucet choices are numerous as well and will be the finishing touch to the look you aim to achieve.
Mounting rings for vessel sinks can be easily found at most home centers or online. They usually come in several finishes that you can match to your faucet and drain. A vessel mounting ring elevates the sink from the countertop and helps with the stability and seal of the sink. A vessel can be installed sitting on the countertop ("above counter mounting) or it can be sunk down up to a third or even half of its height. Some vessels are actually a hybrid of a drop-in style sink and a vessel - i.e. they are designed to partially sit above the countertop.
Price is also going to be a consideration. With some vessel sinks running between $1500.00 and $2000.00 you might want to opt for a less expensive porcelain or glass sink rather than that made of copper or marble. Keep in mind that not only are you going to be paying the cost of the sink, but, you will also need to have a new counter top for your vanity or a new vanity and a new set of faucets as well. So make sure that you can afford the type and style of bathroom vessel sinks you are choosing. Vessel sinks are a wonderful way to add an artistic touch to your bathroom decor without cluttering up the bathroom itself. By giving careful consideration to the type of vessel sink you want and its installation you can have a look that is unique and you are happy with.
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.
