Lamontagne Vessel Sinks November 05th, 2017 - 09:31:08
Most of the other materials will need periodic maintenance to keep them holding water properly and looking like new. Only the ceramic or porcelain type vessel sinks are easy to maintain properly. Of course, the type of sink you choose is going to depend on your overall bathroom decor. If you have an ultra modern bathroom decor then you may not want to choose a sink that looks like rough cut stone. However if you have used stones for your bathroom wall then a matching stone sink may be just what you are looking for.
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.
Whether you are looking for a sink for the bathroom and want to add a vanity sink to your bedroom (if that is possible) there are plenty of online catalogs to look through to help you make your choice. The vessel sinks for the bathroom are sometimes just a basin that is made to sit on top of your existing countertop (which will have to be remodeled when you take out the old sink) and sometimes they are a freestanding bathroom cabinet sink.
Whichever mounting method you use, you will want to install the drain in the vessel before installing the sink to the counter surface. Drains for vessel sinks come in two basic configurations. Does your vessel have an overflow? If so, you will need a standard drain. However, most vessel sinks do not have an overflow and will need a "vessel style drain". Vessel drains come in many different styles and finishes. These drains do not have a "pop up" assembly. Some are referred to as "grid drains" (referring to the "grid configuration" on the top of the drain). Grid drains were designed to let the water flow out of the basin but catch larger objects from heading down the drain.
